this exhibit called soul of a nation can take a deeper dive into an artist or genre by exploring what's not on display in the museum in what's called the visible storage center collection has a lot of other examples and this is an example of a work by an artist affiliated in the black arts movement that wasn't in the exhibition but is certainly in our collection museum goers are often shocked to learn that most major institutions display less than ten percent of their collection here visitors can search the museum's database for hidden gems i never realized this and of what they had that they couldn't show to the public so this is a good way to see things you probably wouldn't see any of the time light temperature and humidity are regulated to preserve the art the brooklyn museum has about three hundred fifty items on display in its main galleries related to american art but its overall collection is much more vast like most museums visible storage gives the public access to another twenty seven hundred works of art.
critics of large art museums say visible storage doesn't go far enough and argue that items in storage should be sold to smaller regional museums the proceeds could then be used to subsidize free admission exposing art to a wider audience we could parcel out some of this material out of the basements of the big especially the big east coast and central museums to places that don't have it all of that or it would be creating a lot more public value which is what i think it's for but visible storage is a resource for scholars one that more and more museums are considering according to collections manager walter anderson. we're basically the friends of the public by making sure that the things that need care get it but we're also presenting this volume of work in an exciting way so that people who want to learn more can certainly learn more allowing art institutions to both maintain their collections and with visible storage provide more of the public a glimpse of great works of art christian salumi al-jazeera brooklyn new york. and

embassy in colombo tweeted a warning saying sri lankan authorities are reporting additional attacks may occur targeting places of worship of void these areas over the weekend starting tomorrow april twenty sixth through sunday april the twenty eighth continue to remain vigilant and avoid large crowds the sri lankan government has implemented a state of emergency in response to the easter sunday bombings the state's national security powers have been expanded potentially giving free range in terms of detaining individuals the move affects almost every fundamental rights of people including freedom of expression censorship and the banning of demonstrations and detentions can last up to three months without being processed in court. fernandez joins us now live from columbus on the standard security bill that was
underway today tell us about that first. that's right to me essential he threw out the d.v.d. so very heightened state of security and alertness there were members of the three armed forces the army navy air force as well as police we had cracked commander units of the police special task force all basically looking at very close conducting stop and searches cordons their world random checkpoints that were popping up throughout the city we're hearing that this is the case in a number of places around the country there were several towns and cities that were searched there was such operations and to be very honest i mean it was a very very palpable presence today there was a very sort of a high alert you could feel the tension among the members of the security personnel
for example when their world vehicles that were considered suspicious you just watch the body language there was definitely what we were hearing reports of intelligence of potential impending attack so it was a lot of security as they tried to get a handle on the situation we did hear that twenty one. explosive devices had been detected that were taken off a suspect sort of hand grenade type locally made explosives just one thing that was a number of alert police to all police stations issued with the nine vehicles that had been listed so a very much a heightened state of security tries to cope with this problem something. post about the state of emergency and how that's being perceived now. well so i mean to be very honest i mean having had the initial declaration or
introduction of the state of emergency we just saw the actual specifics in terms of the regulations and daws have actually pointed to the broad range which have been introduced now remember that the government and even the president in his address to the nation did talk about specific laws under the prevention of terrorism being brought in under that imagine see but having looked at that thirty three page document which has been formalized it is a very very wide ranging in fact there are some observers anomalies to say that it's a huge expansion of national security powers of the state almost an unprecedented sort of a palette of powers but this is what the authorities see the need they are facing unprecedented times so they feel that the leave these broad ranging powers of arrest detention of questioning but over and above that as we have human rights
activists and civil society pointing out that these can be used and can affect almost every single fundamental right of citizens of this country so that's where it stands and as we heard a short while ago the defense secretary of this country is to him a city fernando having resigned from that board for your review remember that again present my policy or santa did say in his address to the nation that within twenty four was he would remove certain defense officials and he did promise restructuring of the security establishment so the defense secretary his resignation one of the first heads to roll so far as sri lanka waits to see how this problem pans out sami thank you so much milf among those there. sudanese protest leaders have increased pressure on the army by calling for a large rally demanding
a civilian government. they're hoping for one million people to take from the streets three senior members of the ruling military council accused of cracking down on protesters resigned on wednesday the council says it's reached a deal or most of the protesters demands but there's no word on how soon the military will hand over power to civilians. hama vile joins us now live from khartoum how we can see live pictures next to you like a lot of people have come out tell us about how the rally is shaping up. yes it's expected to pick up in the evening in the afternoon and the early hours of the evening it's something that the leaders of the protest have called for even though they met yesterday evening with the leaders of the military council and they agreed on several points of view have just mentioned but this this million man so-called million mom march or sitting has been called forward just
a couple days ago and they said they have to go ahead with it because they want to drive home the message and make it very clear to everyone that these people and the military council as well the league is the rallies and the sit in and people industry it's something that they they intend to maintain and to keep going until all of the demands of the road for their evolution are met. there is a joint commission that is going to be appointed between the two sides between the military council and the protest leaders to discuss ways to hand over power to civilians but as you mentioned it's not clear how much time is that going to take and how many people from the from this side or that side will be a part of the military council of the of the ruling supreme presidential council that is going to be appointed that's a point i think of discussion between the two sides one side the protesters want
a majority civilian southern council toward the transition the military they want to the opposite they want to majority military council with a civilian representation from the protest aside the good news as you also mention is that there are more and more the months that have been met by the military side including that as a condition of those three members of the council one of them is the head that was the head of the political committee many people have been chanting against him they said he was one of the close aides of one bashir and but without him. getting out of the picture it means the military council is just a reproduction of the former regime so there is a positive there is positive expectation in the streets but chanting slogans and the same kind of activity by the protesters is continuing because they are not yet sure whether the military council will make good on the promises and they want to
