L.A. cultural phenomenon, “The Museum of Broken Relationships”, is making it’s way to NYC, specifically Flatiron Plaza, this month for a two-day exhibit. Here’s everything you need to know.
When relationships end we are always left with a memento or two. Sometimes it’s something personal and pertinent to the relationship, a photo or ticket to an event you went to together, sometimes it’s something a little more unusual. The exhibit coming to New York is dedicated to the latter.
The creators of the Museum of Broken Relationships, with locations in Los Angeles and Croatia, celebrate the leftover odds and ends we somehow accumulate after relationships. Thier collection is a treasure trove of curious crowdsourced from the lovelorn the world over. For two days this month, NYC will get a flavor of their bizarre museum.
Everything from sneakers to a jar of pickles, each matched with a little story of their origin, this somewhat macabre little pop-up may offer some kind of catharsis to broken hearted NYers. Their traveling exhibit finds it’s way to many cities, expanding its collection along the way. You don’t even have to be physically present to experience what the museum has in store for you, either share your story or of course read others, searching the hashtag #MessageForMyEx.
Their pop-up exhibition comes to the city on July 16 (1-8 p.m.) and July 17 (11 a.m.- 8 p.m.) at Flatiron Plaza and admission is free.
