“I Live. Send Help.” 100 Years of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee

Jun 13 2014 - Sep 21 2014

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) was founded in New York City in 1914 as a response to the plight of Jews in Europe and Palestine at the outset of World War I. Since then, JDC has become a premiere humanitarian organization helping Jews and non-Jews the world over in times of need. On the occasion of its 100 year anniversary, this exhibition will recount the history of the JDC from its creation by Jacob Schiff and Henry Morgenthau Sr. to its most recent relief activities rebuilding Jewish communities of the former Soviet Union and in aiding Filipinos in the wake of the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan. Included in this celebratory exhibition will be photographs, objects, and films that bring the JDC’s poignant stories to life.

In January 1917, Marcel Duchamp ascended a staircase to the top of the Washington Arch, where he joined friends in proclaiming the Free and Independent Republic of Washington Square. Eleven months later, the Armistice ended World War I. Join us in exploring the homes and haunts of Duchamp and his fellow modernist artists, who lived and worked cheek-by-jowl among the local Irish and Italians who knew little of modern art but much of war and its grief.
