First Saturdays for Families: David Goldblatt’s Lens

August 1 2009

Explore the work of South African photographer David Goldblatt and how he points out a connection between people (including himself) and the environment, and the way the environment reflects the ideologies that built it. Learn how to make your own pinhole camera and capture the people and environs of the Lower East Side. One camera per family will be available.

From 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., families are invited into our theater to view a 30-minute program of short films provided by Brooklyn International Film Festival’s kidsfilmfest.

New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children 4 to 15 years old, and includes free New Museum admission for up to 2 adults per family. Children under 18 are always admitted free. No preregistration is required. Tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
