    Vladimir Zakrzewski: Drawings of the 1980s

    Press Releases ?
    • August 1989: Vladimir Zakrzewski: Drawings of the 1980s, an exhibition of 21 drawings by this contemporary Polish artist who immigrated to the United States in 1981, will open September 29 at The Brooklyn Museum and remain on view through December 5, 1989, in the East Gallery of the Prints and Drawings Galleries, located on the second floor. The works, dating from 1981 to the present, were executed in a variety of media, including pencil, colored pencil, wax crayon, various inks, and needle on white wove paper.

      Vladimir Zakrzewski was born in Lodz, Poland, in 1946, the son of two artists. In 1964 he entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where he planned to study architecture but soon turned to painting and filmmaking. He received his M.A. from the Academy in 1970.

      Zakrzewski’s small colorful drawings, although stylistically related to his large canvases, stand independently as fully realized works of art. They reflect a continuing tradition of European Constructivism, transformed into a personal style derived by the artist from his own background and experience.

      The exhibition, selected and organized by Linda Konheim Kramer, Curator of Prints and Drawings, has been made possible with generous support from Armand Bartos, Jr. The catalogue was produced as the gift of Arno van Orsouw of Art Print Amsterdam.

      An illustrated catalogue containing a foreword by Robert T. Buck, Director of The Brooklyn Museum, and an essay by Ms. Kramer will accompany the exhibition (20 pages: softcover, $3.95).

    "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"
