1 – 2 pm EDT
Zoom, Virtual Program

Participants in the ASL community are invited to explore the exhibition The Sassoons through a virtual tour led by Alexandria Wailes. This exhibition reveals the fascinating story of a remarkable Jewish family, following four generations from Iraq to India, China, and England through a rich selection of works collected by family members over time. It raises themes such as discrimination, diaspora, colonialism, global trade, and war that not only shaped the history of the family but continue to define our world today.

This program will be conducted through Zoom and offered without voice interpretation. Due to limited capacity, ASL students will not be admitted to the program.

All Access Programs are free of charge and require advance reservation. Please contact [email protected] or 212.433.3289 for more information or to register.
