    • Spring 1988: A New Brooklyn Museum: The Master Plan Competition, an exhibition documenting the recent architectural competition held by The Brooklyn Museum to develop a master plan to complete its unfinished Beaux-Arts buidling by McKim, Mead & White and to guide its future into the next century, will open December 18 and be on view through March 7, 1988. It will include 60 architectural boards and five models submitted by the finalists in the competition: Atkin, Voith and Associates with Rothzeid Kaiserman Thompson & Bee; Kohn Pederson Fox; Skidmore, Owings and Merrill in association with Vitetta Group/Studio Four; Voorsanger and Mills Associates; and the winner, Arata Isozaki & Associates/James Stewart Polshek and Partners. Supplementary materials will focus on McKim, Mead & White’s original design and place the Museum and the competition in a historical context.

      The exhibition will be accompanied by a book on the competition which is being co-published by The Brooklyn Museum and Rizzoli International. The book will include an introduction on recent museum design by Reyner Banham, noted architecture critic and author of many books on modern architecture who has recently been appointed Sheldon H. Solow Professor of the History of Architecture, The Institute of Fine Arts, New York University.

It will also reproduce each architectural board in full, many in color, and provide a full treatment of the competition, with a synopsis of the program guidelines provided to the architects and design statements that show how each of the five finalists tried to meet those criteria.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
