as excerpted from the New Museum of Contemporary Art’s website
“Founded in 1977, the New Museum is the premier contemporary art museum in New York City and among the most important internationally. Dynamic solo exhibitions and landmark group shows define key moments in the development of contemporary art, reflect the global nature of art today, and span a vast array of cultural activities and media. The Museum is guided by the conviction that contemporary art is a vital social force that extends beyond the art world into the broader culture.”
“The New Museum features an entire floor, open free of charge, where you can drop in to read, think, talk, browse, and experience interactive artists’ projects. Three galleries and a mezzanine level showcase innovative art that you won’t see in other museums. The New Museum is the only place where the art is truly global, presenting an astonishing range of installations, videos, paintings, and sculptures from around the world. The Education Department organizes compelling panel discussions, film and video series, and lectures to introduce challenging new concepts to a broad public. The New Museum Store offers the latest catalogues and publications, as well as imaginative gifts and limited edition works of art.”
