    Section 70

    Press Releases ?
    • November 21, 1969: Seven students of the Pratt Institute Evening School will have an exhibition of their work at The Brooklyn Museum’s Community Gallery from December 7, 1969 to January 4, 1970.

      The exhibition, entitled “Section 70,” brings together seven individuals who are completing their formal instruction at Pratt. During the day, the artists fill such posts as a draftsman for the Fire Department, a draftsman for a structural concern, housewife, full-time artist, teacher and graphic designer.

      The participating exhibitors are Finbar Egan, Peter Schira, Nicole Rizzo, Bruno Nidetsky, Rolando Nidetsky, George Wybenga and Daniel Weidmann. The artists work in a variety of styles and media ranging from figurative to abstract and from painting to photography. Their common bond is the Pratt Institute Evening School, which offers the artist technical training complementing his day-time work.

      The Brooklyn Museum’s Community Gallery, which recently celebrated its first anniversary, is the first gallery of its kind in any major cultural institution in the country. Twelve groups of artists have already taken advantage of the Gallery’s facilities.

      "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"
