New York's only museum devoted exclusively to contemporary art, the New Museum features exhibitions that showcase innovative and experimental work from around the world, as well as educational programs, publications, performances, and more.
Opening November 10, 2022 at the New Museum is the first American museum survey exhibition devoted to Theaster Gates, encompassing the full range of the artist’s practice. This landmark exhibition will be accompanied by a presentation of newly commissioned works by Vivian Caccuri and Miles Greenberg exploring the relationship between bodies and sound waves. “Theaster Gates: Young Lords and Their Traces” spans three floors of the museum, featuring artworks produced over the past 20 years and site-specific environments created especially for this presentation. Combining an intimate, poetic sensibility and a sense of civic commitment, Gates’s work reimagines art as a form of social sculpture that can open up new horizons even in the most surprising contemporary settings.
