Raw/Cooked: Ulrike Müller

‘The fifth exhibition in the Raw/Cooked series [at Brooklyn Museum] presents the work of Sunset Park-based artist Ulrike Müller. With the goal of starting a conversation on the lesbian feminist movement and examining the visibility of queer bodies within mainstream culture and the Museum, Müller orchestrated a collaborative drawing project based on the inventory list of the feminist T-shirt collection at the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Park Slope, Brooklyn. She distributed textual T-shirt descriptions to feminists, queer artists, and other interested New Yorkers, and asked that they translate these texts into new images. Her exhibition includes one hundred drawings from this project. Additionally, she used symbolic lesbian, feminist, and queer terms from the inventory as search criteria to mine the Museum’s online collection. Through the display of approximately one hundred of the collaborative drawings and nearly twenty-five Museum collection objects in the Luce Center for American Art’s Elevator Lobby and elsewhere in the Museum, Müller creates a visual dialogue among contemporary queer culture, the Museum, and the history of feminist activism.’ – Brooklyn Museum
