Virtual Gallery Talk: In the Wake

The Latest Exhibition at the Freedman Gallery

On Tuesday, January 24, meet the artists behind In the Wake, the The Doris C. and Alan J. Freedman Gallery’s recent group exhibition. Organized by Stanley Greenberg, the show reminds us of the complexity, urgency, and promise of the challenge facing our city as we mark the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Sandy and the first anniversary of Hurricane Ida. Join Stanley and six of the artists featured in the show as they explore their creative works and contemplate what New York’s climate future looks like.

About The Doris C. and Alan J. Freedman Gallery

The Doris C. and Alan J. Freedman Gallery was housed at the former offices of MAS at the Villard Houses prior to the organization’s move in 2010. In 2020, the gallery was reimagined as a digital space made accessible to visitors from across the city and world. Both the digital gallery and its original programming at the Villard Houses have been made possible through the generosity of the Freedman Family.

Doris Freedman (1928—1981) served as New York City’s first Director of Cultural Affairs and founded the Public Art Fund in 1977. Alan Freedman (1923 – 1982) was the founder and chairman of the WNYC Foundation, which raised private financing to support public radio broadcasting in New York. Both Doris and Alan Freedman served as Presidents of MAS in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
