Special Exhibition Tours We Offer


Silicon City: Computer History Made in New York (November 13, 2015-April 10, 2016)

Long before Silicon Valley became synonymous with all things digital, New York was a hub for imagining, developing, and selling the technology that ultimately reshaped entertainment, commerce, and daily life. Featuring more than 180 artifacts from the late-1800s through the 1980s, Silicon City will use images, artifacts, interactives, and oral histories to look back at local innovations that were key to computer development.


Anti-Semitism 1919–1939 (April 12, 2016 - July 31, 2016)

Anti-Semitism 1919–1939 traces the slow indoctrination of citizens, both non-Jewish and Jewish, through words and images that were seen daily in Germany. The exhibition also speaks to how New York and America’s demographic changed substantially in the wake of European anti-Semitism, underscoring the old adage about the importance of history: how it is impossible to understand who we are today without knowing from where we came.


The Folk Art Collection of Elie and Viola Nadelman (May 20, 2016 - August 21, 2016)

The avant-garde sculptor Elie Nadelman (1882-1946) is widely recognized for his elegant, modernist works. Less familiar is the pioneering folk art collection he established with his wife, an impressive trove of some 15,000 objects that was purchased by the New-York Historical Society in 1937. The Folk Art Collection of Elie and Viola Nadelman will celebrate their extraordinary trove with the first major examination of the collection. N-YHS’s holdings will be exhibited alongside loans of key Nadelman sculptures to illuminate the intersection between folk art and modernism.


First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare (June 07, 2016 - July 17, 2016)

As part of a worldwide celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the Folger Shakespeare Library is launching a nation-wide tour of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, published in 1623. New-York Historical, together with the 92nd Street Y and The Public, is proud to help present this pivotal and incredibly rare book. Containing the first published scripts of 36 of Shakespeare’s most famous plays—including Hamlet, Macbeth and As You Like It—the First Folio will be on display at the New-York Historical Society for 6 weeks, beginning June 7.


Picasso's "Le Tricorne" (May 29, 2015 – Ongoing)

The New-York Historical Society is proud to unveil our newly acquired and conserved Picasso. Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet Le Tricorne, which premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London. The exhibition positions Picasso's curtain in dialogue with paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work and exemplify the conventions he rebelled against. Other themes pivot around dance subjects and explore contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors.
