The space has been gained through the renovation of the 96-year-old West Wing, designed by McKim, Mead & White, some of which has not been used for exhibitions since the 1930's.

    • New Wing, New Hope at Brooklyn MuseumNovember 30, 1993 By GLENN COLLINS"Two years ago the Brooklyn Museum confronted a budget crisis that required cutting both its staff and its hours. But that was then. Tonight, the 96-year-old institution is giving a party for 2,300 guests to show off not only the $1 million reinstallation of its Egyptian collection, but also the $31 million renovation of its once-dusty, little-used..."

    • A New Temple For Egyptian ArtDecember 3, 1993 By ROBERTA SMITH"WHEN the Brooklyn Museum first opened its doors in 1897, it was a long and lonely Beaux-Arts shoe box. Judging from vintage photographs, it must have looked extremely odd: it lacked the prominent entrance usual to the Beaux-Arts style, and it stood out starkly against its low-lying, surprisingly rural background. (A chicken farm was next to it.)..."
    • Review/Architecture; Isozaki's Designs for an Insecure Postwar WorldDecember 17, 1993 By HERBERT MUSCHAMP""Arata Isozaki: Works in Architecture," now on view at the Brooklyn Museum, may put you in mind of Nietzsche's warning against looking too long into the abyss lest the abyss look back into you. A show that begins with a glimpse into the cultural void of postwar Japan gives way to the queasy sensation that the West has also been swallowed up by a..."

    "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"
