newmuseum Follow @ideascity to get updates on the upcoming festival!
The theme of this year's #IDEASCITY Festival is the #INVISIBLECITY, an homage to Italo Calvino's literary masterpiece of 1972. This theme is rooted in civic action, with each of the Festival's platforms serving as an invitation to explore questions of transparency and surveillance, citizenship and representation, expression and suppression, participation and dissent, and the enduring quest for visibility in the city. Mark May 28-30 on your calendar to uncover the #INVISIBLECITY of yesterday, today, tomorrow. #ItaloCalvino

newmuseum This is the LAST WEEKEND to see Martine Syms's installation and reading room, "S1:E1," which examines the representation of blackness in the American situation comedy. Syms's video work "A Pilot For A Show About Nowhere" (2015) documents the history of the sitcom and the impact that the genre—including the shows "Family Matters" and "The Cosby Show"—has had on the lives and consciousness of black viewers #SurroundAudience 1w

newmuseum Ed Atkins's video installation, "Happy Birthday!!" (2014), takes as its point of departure a drawing by the artist, writer and philosopher Pierre Klossowski that depicts an ambiguous scene of a man hovering over a sickbed and cradling the head of its occupant in a manner that seems at once tender and menacing. #SurroundAudience closes on May 24 1w

newmuseum Lisa Holzer, "But yes, but yes!," 2013. Holzer's series of works on view string together the names of nail polish colors by brands such as Chanel and essie into a kind of poem or incantation. #SurroundAudience closes on May 24! 1w

newmuseum "Chris Burden, RIP. An artistic giant, influential teacher, fearless risk-taker, and maverick who played by his own rules, Chris was also endlessly curious and tremendously exacting. It was a great honor to work with him so closely over the past several years to realize his largest museum exhibition, "Chris Burden: Extreme Measures," including the monumental installation on the Museum’s facade that he knew would alter the skyline of our neighborhood. It will remain on view for the next several months in tribute to Chris and his vision. Our thoughts go out to his wife and life partner, Nancy Rubins, as well as to Katy and the members of his studio team, who were extended family." – Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director 2w
