Fastening w/o Drilling

Is it possible to attach a painting or shelf onto brick without drilling or glueing? The wall doesn't belong to me, so I am not allowed to damage it.

fastening w/o drilling

3M makes a removeable line of picture hooks. You peel and stick them, and they stay. When you get ready to move, just pull a tab on the bottom, and the glue releases without damaging the walls. Do the brick have recessed pointing. That is, can you hang an "s" hook on top of a brick to hold a picture?
Shelving will be another story. You will need alot more support than can be provided without drilling.
Post back if we can help further.

If the mortar is recessed, you can use Brick Clips. Google the product.
