The New Woman Behind the Camera features more than 120 photographers from 20 different countries. It explores the work of women who made photos for a living or used it as a form of artistic expression from the 1920 through the 1950s. The exhibition takes an international approach to the subject, and it highlights women’s innovative work in studio portraiture, fashion and advertising, artistic experimentation, street photography, ethnography, and photojournalism.
An interactive exposition with six rooms where visitors can explore the relationship between human beings and video games. It aims to generate a new vision on the concept of a gamer by exploring a world in which life and games are completely intertwined. The exhibition features more than 40 pieces that include both games and works of art, within a participatory space that turns a normal exhibition into a collective gaming experience.
The exhibition housed by the museum coincides with its 10th anniversary. It displays 100 pieces by both creators Azzedine Alaïa and Cristobal Balenciaga. Their creations are an example of architecture, and they remind us of how unique the two couturiers were at their time, and their impact in the present. The project is undertaken by both institutions in memory of Hubert de Givenchy, the original promoter of this idea.
An annual photography exhibition that usually takes place in Brooklyn Bridge Park will last almost three months and will be available in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island and The Bronx. The festival provides an accessible venue for photographers and audiences from everyday life to engage with each other. This year’s theme is still unknown but taking into account that past highlights have included “Pandemic Class of 2020”, “Asian Americans on Race and The Pandemic” and “Bronx Wrestling”, we are sure the exhibition will live up to your expectations.
The exhibition offers a different perspective on humanity’s impact on the planet. It traces back to the complex interrelations between today’s climate crisis and legacies of colonialism. Alberta Whittle, Allora & Calzadilla, Zineb Sedira and Malala Andrialavidrazana are some of the featured artists that interrogate the environmental issues facing the southern hemisphere. The aim of the exhibition is to expand the narrative around climate change looking further back in time instead of linking it to the West Industrial Revolution.

Closely linked to current themes such as sustainability, gender, and diversity in the broadest sense of the word.
