Founded in 1977, the New Museum is a leading destination for new art and new ideas. It is Manhattan’s only dedicated contemporary art museum and is respected internationally for the adventurousness and global scope of its curatorial program. The New Museum of Contemporary Art is a center for today’s art and ideas, and a catalyst for dialogue between contemporary artists and the public. The New Museum is a project of multiple individuals and perspectives, and stronger because of it. We are committed to becoming a more inclusive institution.
