Discussion | Survivors: Faces of Life After the Holocaust: Exhibition Discussion (in-person and online)


Survivors: Faces of Life After the Holocaust is a powerful photography exhibition showcasing 75 large-scale portraits of Holocaust survivors taken by famed photographer Martin Schoeller. Stripped of artifice, Schoeller's photographs portray the beauty, humanity, and resilience of those who survived and grew old in the face of antisemitism -- while imagining those who were never given the chance. The portraits are accompanied by a biography of and message from each sitter, as well as video footage documenting the artist's photographic process. This will be the first exhibition of the profound series in a major U.S. museum. This is a conversation with Schoeller and Sara Softness, the Museum's Curator of Special Projects. They will discuss what inspired him to create this moving instillation. The exhibition will be on view before and after the discussion.

Screening | Traces: Portraits of Resistance, Survival and Resolve (online)


In the face of unfathomable horror, fleeting moments of bravery and generosity remind us of our capacity for courage and compassion, even under the most harrowing of circumstances. Seventy-seven years after the Holocaust, a new animated trilogy from Humanity in Action brings three such histories to life. The three films in the series - Voices in the Void, Two Trees in Jerusalem, and My Father's War - are first-hand testimonials from the time of the Holocaust that seek to safeguard stories and lessons learned during one of humanity's darkest chapters and to demonstrate their relevance to the present. Followed by a discussion with Judith Goldstein, Founder and Executive Director of Humanity in Action, and Peter and David Hein, protagonists of My Father's War.

City Walk | Love is a Place: A Poet's Walk of Greenwich Village


e.e. cummings wrote that "love is a place." Perhaps he meant 4 Patchin Place, in Greenwich Village, where he lived from 1924-1962. Cummings was certainly not the only poet to live in Greenwich Village, and not even the only poet to live on Patchin Place. In this walking tour of Greenwich Village with historian Lucie Levine, we'll visit the homes and haunts of well over a century of poets who called the neighborhood home. Along the way we'll meet symbolists and modernists, 19th century salon hostesses and 20th century raconteurs, pulitzer prize winners and prophets, feminist luminaries and queer pioneers whose words enriched, and even defined, American life. Tour Leader Lucie Levine is a writer, historian and New York City tour guide. She founded the historical tour and event company Archive on Parade, and has offered tours and lectures on New York City history in collaboration with, The New School, CUNY, NYU Langone, The American Institute of Architects, The Municipal Art Society, The Historic Districts Council, The New York Public Library, The 92nd Street Y, Village Preservation, The New York Preservation Archive Project and Landmark West.

City Walk | Queer History Walk


A walking tour that explores the queer histories of the neighborhood surrounding the museum. This walk will bring visitors to select sites to reflect on the changing nature of queer community as it formed along the New York waterfront. Visit the former sites of bars, clubs, and public spaces and consider the intersection between artistic and sexual experimentation that occurred alongside the piers of the West Side. The walk will culminate with a look at Day's End (2021) by David Hammons, a new permanent public artwork that sketches the shape of the former Pier 52 building and references a work by the artist Gordon Matta-Clark from 1975. The layered history of Hammons's work serves as a model for how the queer history of the city remains a defining presence in the ever-changing landscape of the neighborhood.
