Side walk 6' apart in New York City New York Historical Society

In April 2020, at the height of the onset of the pandemic in New York City, photographer Renate Aller began inviting one friend at a time to join her on the sidewalk in front of her building in Soho, where she set up a camera to chronicle the coming together. It was the first time in weeks that many of them had encountered others in the outside world. Aller and her friends never touched, but together, they created an emotional landscape of those early months of uncertainty. The photos on display in side walk 6' apart in New York City capture a time when fear and anxiety conflicted with the overwhelming urge to connect.

Born in Germany, Renate Aller lives and works in New York. Her work is in the collections of corporate institutions, private collectors, and museums, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Yale University Art Gallery, CT; and Musée des beaux-arts Le Locle, Switzerland, among others.

The MoMA has one of the largest and most influential collections of modern art in the world. Home to famous works like Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night, Salvador Dali's The Persistence of Memory, and works by Mondrian, Monet, and Picasso, this is a haven for art lovers. Located smack in the center of Midtown Manhattan, MoMA is a must-see destination in New York.
