Visited the New Museum on the Lower East Side

The New Museum was established by an independent curator Marcia Tucker in 1977. It is dedicated to introducing new art and new ideas, by artists who have not yet received significant exposure or recognition.  If you go to this museum, don't expect to view Andy Warhol, Picasso, Monet, Manet, or any other familiar artist.

The exhibits that I viewed today were mostly videos which seemed to be very "off-beat".  The featured artists were:

  • Anna Boghiguian
  • Hiwa K
  • Aaron Fowler
  • Naufus Ramirez-Figeroa
  • John Akomfrah
  • Thomas Bayrle  - this was my favorite
