    • July 2004: 14 Stations: Photographed by David Michalek an exhibition depicting the traditional Christian devotional Stations of the Cross, and enacted by men and women who were recently homeless, will be on view at the Brooklyn Museum November 19, 2004 through March 27, 2005.

      14 Stations: Photographed by David Michalek was made in collaboration with the Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing (IAHH), a non-profit organization based at the Cathedral of St. John the Devine in New York City. The organization is committed to bearing witness to the dignity of all vulnerable people, particularly those who have been homeless.

      Each station was enacted by members of the organization, with a different man or woman taking the place of the traditional Christ figure in each. Michalek then photographed the resulting tableaux. The project avoided direct correlation with canonical representations of the Stations and opted instead for scenes of “everyday life” or, more specifically, scenes suggestive of the experience of being homeless.

      The large-scale black-and-white photographs, which are mounted on backlit display boxes, are meant to serve as social and personal statements rather than comprising an exhibition of fine art in the usual sense.

      David Michalek received a B.A. in English literature from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a certificate in filmmaking from NYU. He works as a freelance portrait photographer as well as creating performance- based work and multidisciplinary installations. He has been active as an artist since the 1990s and his stated endeavor is to unify aesthetics and ethics as well as to create work that stimulates the imagination.

      Charlotta Kotik, curator and chair of the Department of Contemporary Art, organized 14 Stations for the Brooklyn Museum.

      14 Stations: Photographs by David Michalek was made possible, in part, by funds from the Durfee Foundation, The Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art, The Jerome Foundation, and The New York State Council on the Arts. Metrospace Airport Advertising generously donated 14 lightboxes.

    "Hi Aimee, I think you mean Oreet Ashery? More information can be found in her profile on the Feminist Art Base: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/eascfa/feminist_art_base/gallery/oreet_ashery.php?i=266"

    "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"

    Over the years, the collections of the Brooklyn Museum have been organized and reorganized in different ways. Collections of the former Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs include works on paper that may fall into other categories: American Art, European Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and Photography.
    The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference. Please note that all the original typographical elements, including occasional errors, have been retained. Releases may also contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the informative text panels written by the curator or organizer. Called "didactics," these panels are presented to the public during the exhibition's run, and we reproduce them here for your reference and archival interest. Please note that any illustrations on the original didactics have not been retained, and that the text may contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the objects from the Brooklyn Museum collection that were in the installation.
