Cocktails with a Curator


Join us in raising a glass to Cocktails with a Curator

Xavier F. Salomon, Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, bids farewell to the program with a discussion of the most modern work on display at Frick Madison, Arrangement in Black and Gold: Comte Robert de Montesquiou-Fezensac by James McNeill Whistler. This week’s complementary cocktail is the Black Manhattan—a spin on the Manhattan from our very first episode—or a Black Tea Sour mocktail.

Audiences under 21 are encouraged to join with a non-alcoholic drink.

New Online Series: Where in the World?

The Frick’s temporary move to Frick Madison has prompted new ways of looking at our works of art. The reframing of the collection sheds light on the fact that the Frick’s art, although predominantly European, is undeniably linked to the world beyond Europe. In this series, we’re exploring some of these stories, asking “where in the world” we can find new connections to familiar objects.

In the inaugural episode, Curator Aimee Ng explores the history of mahogany, a material hidden beneath the surface of a Rembrandt portrait and sourced oceans away from the famed artist’s homeland. The series is available to view on Instagram and YouTube.
