Curator's Talk: The Lung Block Exhibit

NYC Dept of Records and Information Services

31 Chambers St. Suite 305
Room 111
NY, NY 10007
United States

As part of our Night at the Museum's special programming, visitors will join cultural critic Stefano Morello and architectural historian Kerri Culhane for a discussion of the curatorial process behind our current exhibit, The Lung Block: A New York City Slum and Its Forgotten Italian Immigrant Community, on view through August 2019.

Kerri and Stefano will outline the family mystery which launched Stefano's research into the Lung Block, paint a detailed portrait of the city's policies on housing, immigration, and health at the turn of the 20th century and their role in the fate of Lung Block; as well as explore the urban geography of this lost neighborhood and the stories used to depict tenement life. Please bring questions and ideas for sharing at this interactive conversation.

* Arrive early to the tour of the Lung Block exhibit and see a preview of an upcoming collaboration between the Department of Records and Information Services and the Museum of American Finance! *
