Curator's Choice: The Iconic vs. the Forgotten

THURSDAY / SEPTEMBER 28
9:30–11:30 A.M.
For Members with Opening Nights and Patrons $850 for the four-session course

This four-part series highlights the Museum's vast collection through an exploration of the theme "The Iconic vs. the Forgotten" across cultures. Four curators will select works of art from their respective departments that they feel represent this duality. Each curator will explore this theme in the context of the artist/maker, subject matter, discipline, or media. 

September 28
Adam Eaker, Assistant Curator, on works in the Department of European Paintings

October 5
Melanie Holcomb, Curator, on works in the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters

October 12
Maryam Ekhtiar, Associate Curator, on works in the Department of Islamic Art

October 19
James Doyle, Assistant Curator, on works in the Department of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas

Start with a tour in the galleries before the Museum opens to the public, followed by a discussion and light refreshments in the Patrons Lounge. 

Space is limited. Please contact the Membership Office at 212-650-2356 to register.
