newmuseum "Institute for Southern Contemporary Art (ISCA)" by artists João Enxuto and Erica Love is a video promotional piece for the ISCA, a proposed artist platform tailored to optimize the creation of art for market consumption. ISCA’s mission is totally preposterous, and yet, amid the onset of programs that analyze and rank art to quantify its future value (ArtRank and Art Advisor), it doesn’t hew too far from the current ways in which art is commodified. Copresented with @rhizomedotorg, the online exhibition is on view (link in bio) along with other innovative projects, as part of First Look: New Art Online. 2d

newmuseum “Andra Ursuţa: Alps” is now open! Combining formal innovation with dark humor and social commentary, Ursuţa’s works use parody and blasphemy to expose the vulnerability of the human body. The Romanian-born artist immigrated to New York in the late 1990s, but many of the narrative facets of her upbringing—from occult folk traditions to blundering nationalist propaganda—resonate throughout her work. #AndraUrsuta 3d

newmuseum Cally Spooner’s “On False Tears and Outsourcing” opens today. The exhibition includes a group of dancers who respond to conflicting choreographic instructions: to stay intimately bound together while remaining fiercely separate. Trained by rugby players and a movie director, and following the logic of a “stand-up scrum,” the dancers learned a set of techniques taken from contact sports, management strategies, and on-screen romance. #CallySpooner 5d

newmuseum Just Announced! This summer, the New Museum will present "The Keeper," a multi-floor exhibit dedicated to the act of preserving objects, artworks, and images. A reflection on the impulse to save both the most precious and the apparently valueless, the show will bring together imaginary museums, personal collections, and unusual assemblages, revealing the devotion with which artists, collectors, scholars, and hoarders have created sanctuaries for endangered images and artifacts. Read the full announcement via link in our profile. (: Ydessa Hendeles, Partners (The Teddy Bear Project), 2002. Photo by Robert Keziere) 5d

newmuseum Exploring the Lower East Side? Stop by First Street Green on Houston St. in the next few weeks to see legendary street artists Peter Missing and Cyril Masart's ongoing mural project, organized by @fourthartsblock. In the 1980s, @petermissing was known for placing his logo on buildings in the East Village/LES as a warning to developers that there would be consequences if they tried to build in the area. #petermissing 1w

  •   laboticadelatierra @loveallspeciesrespect You are partly right. That is Channel, her hooves were neglected by humans that kept her in concrete floor. A friend of mine rescued her, her hooves were in a horrid state. What you see in the image is the process of trimming hooves to a goat that was too scared and kept running away. Her hooves did improved over time and so her quuality of life. You never know! 2w

  •   newmuseum @mx.enigma I'm so sorry to hear about that, and thank you for letting me know. Would you like to send me an email at press@newmuseum.org? Either way I'll make sure to share this issue with our head of security. 2w
  •   mx.enigma @newmuseum No. I just would like the museum to make it easier and accessible for youth to come to their events. And when I say my age and show my card from an Alternative school, I don't need to prove further. Also most youth under 18 don't have a State ID, since you can't issue one till your 18. 2w

newmuseum FINAL DAYS! See “A Pot for a Latch” before the show closes this Sunday. Throughout the course of the exhibit, artist Pia Camil invited New Museum visitors to participate in the ongoing creation of her piece by exchanging their own personal objects for others in the installation, transforming our Lobby Gallery into a shop of sorts, in which the personal significance of an object took precedence over its monetary value. #PiaCamil 3w
