Programs

Cabaret at Café Sabarsky in the Neue Galerie continues its unique series devoted primarily to German and Austrian music of the 1890s to 1930s, some of the most fertile and volatile music created in the modern era. The intimate 60-seat room is exquisitely appointed with period objects, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann and furniture by Adolf Loos, and features a Bösendorfer grand piano.

Every season, the museum presents a series of documentaries and feature films that engage with central themes of the art on display. These films are selected by the curatorial staff, and shed light on the deeper motivations of artists, give insight into the time period, or demonstrate the ongoing influence of turn-of-the-century art and thought on today's culture. Films are presented free of charge on Mondays at 4 p.m. in Café Fledermaus.

First Fridays is supported by a generous grant from The Wall Street Journal. The Neue Galerie will be open free to the public from 6 to 8 p.m. The museum shops will be open until 8 p.m. and Café Sabarsky will be open for drinks, dinner, and dessert until 9 p.m.

Concurrent with every exhibition, the museum presents a lecture series led by a distinguished group of scholars. Lectures are presented at 6:30 p.m. and are free for Members. $8, regular admission; $5, students and seniors.

Gifted young musicians perform in the Café Sabarsky on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. This series is presented in partnership with the Perlman Music Program. Recitals are offered free for members; $25, regular admission. Reserve tickets at the main admissions desk or by calling the Visitor Services office at +1 (212) 994-9493.
