Conversation & Book Signing with William Middleton:
Double Vision: The Unerring Eye of Art World Avatars Dominique and John de Menil
Monday, April 9 at 7pm
FIAF – Le Skyroom

The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, is thrilled to welcome journalist and editor William Middleton for a conversation about Dominique and John de Menil, two of the most important philanthropists of the twentieth century on Monday, April 9 at 7pm at FIAF’s Le Skyroom, 22 East 60th Street (between Madison & Park).

In an intimate talk, he will share the never-before-told story of the de Menils, whose prescient vision for art, architecture, and human rights, put them in a league of their own.

Maverick collectors, patrons, and civil rights activists, the de Menils arrived in the United States from France during World War II and changed the cultural face of New York and Houston.

William Middleton had unprecedented access to the private family archives for his new book, Double Vision: The Unerring Eye of Art World Avatars Dominique and John de Menil, the first and definitive biography of this visionary couple.

Conversation led by author and journalist Kate Betts.

Talk in English. Followed by a book signing.

Join Alex for one of two tours offered during the day to learn about our unparalleled spring bulb displays and to get a sneak peek of the new artwork on display for the 2018 season.  Even though we are offering two tours on this day, they sell out quickest of all, so do not delay and RSVP today.

New Directors / New Films
March 28 - April 8
MoMA and Film Society of Lincoln Center

Celebrating its 47th edition in 2018, the New Directors/New Films festival introduces New York audiences to the work of emerging filmmakers from around the world. Throughout its rich, nearly half-century history, New Directors has brought previously little-known talents like Pedro Almodóvar, Chantal Akerman, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Christopher Nolan, Laura Poitras, Spike Lee, and Kelly Reichardt to wider audiences. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating a group of filmmakers who represent the present and anticipate the future of cinema: daring artists whose work pushes the envelope and is never what you’d expect. Presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art.
