The New Museum Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

2 years ago

On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, on December 2 and 3, the New Museum features a rich program of activities with free admission for all visitors and extended museum hours.
Exhibitions currently on view include: “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon”, “Kahlil Joseph: Shadow Play”, “Petrit Halilaj: RU”, “Helen Johnson: Ends”, “Alex Da Corte: Harvest Moon”, and “Pursuing the Unpredictable: The New Museum 1977–2017”.

As a highlight of the weekend, an intergenerational group of 40 artists will come together in conversation for “Who’s Afraid of the New Now? 40 Artists in Dialogue to Celebrate the New Museum’s Anniversary.”
The event features a selection of artists whose exhibitions, works, and interventions have shaped and transformed the identity and history of the New Museum. On the occasion Pipilotti Rist has realized a new video which will be shown in the New Museum Theater as an intermezzo between talks.
