London born, Dublin-based art dealer and curator Oliver Sears is joined by award-winning author and critic Daniel Mendelsohn for an intimate and illuminating conversation about this powerful exhibition, The Objects of Love, on view at 92NY’s Weill Art Gallery from September 13 through November 28.
First shown to great acclaim at Dublin Castle in Ireland, The Objects of Love vividly tells the story of one family torn apart in Nazi-occupied Poland. This emotional journey unveils Oliver Sears’ family story through a curated collection of precious objects, photos, and documents passed down through three generations. How do we honor our loved ones — and our own personal histories — in the wake of atrocity? What story emerges, reconstructed from objects and keepsakes retrieved from the Holocaust, about what we’ve lost?
Recorded Sep 13, 2023 at 92nd Street Y, New York.
