New Museum celebrates the big 4-0!
(We know the feeling – we just had ours last year!)
And, as is fitting, the Museum is making big plans.
For their 40th Anniversary weekend (Saturday, December 2nd and Sunday December 3rd), The Museum is offering free admission for all visitors and extended museum hours from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Additionally, they are reinstalling Bruce Nauman’s iconic video “‘No, No New Museum (Clown Torture Series) (1987) in the Museum’s window, just as the work was originally presented during Nauman’s solo exhibition at the Museum in 1987.”
Most excitingly, there’s “Who’s Afraid of the New Now”: Dialogue between artists “whose exhibitions, works, and interventions have shaped and transformed the identity and history of the New Museum.”
The December 2nd line-up includes: Carolee Schneemann, Jeff Koons, and George Condo.
And the December 3rd line-up has: Paul McCarthy, Allen Ruppersberg, and Ragnar Kjartansson.
