“leading destination for new art & new ideas”

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 has been amassing a wealth of materials now available through the New Museum Digital Archive. The Digital Archive currently contains over 6,000 exhibition images, exhibition descriptions, publications, public program chronology, and a searchable database of over 3,700 artists, curators, and institutions associated with the New Museum's programming. The New Museum began as an idea in the mind of founding Director Marcia Tucker. As a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art from 1967 through 1976, Tucker observed firsthand that new work by living artists was not easily assimilated into the conventional exhibition and collection structure of the traditional art museum.
