newmuseum Offering a symphonic experience from floor to floor, ‘Anri Sala: Answer Me’ “ is brilliantly installed and is as much for music as for art folk.”— Roberta Smith (@robertasmithnyt) for @nytimes. Read the full review via link in our profile, and come by the New Museum to experience the exhibition, encompassing 16 years of Sala’s explorations of sound, time, architecture and history. 📸: Nicole Bengiveno/The New York Times #AnriSala 1d

newmuseum Behind the installation that's being described as a "showstopper" and a "mesmerizing sonic experience" are 1,600 pieces of foam, intricate cabling, expert sound mixing, and an unstoppable install team. See Anri Sala's "Ravel Ravel" (2013) as part of our newest exhibition "Anri Sala: Answer Me," through April 10. : Natalie Bell, Assistant Curator (@abellanatalie)​ 2d

newmuseum "Anri Sala: Answer Me" opens to the public today! Unfolding across three floors, the exhibit features extensive audio and video installations, including "Ravel Ravel" (2013), in which two interpretations of Maurice Ravel's "Piano Concerto for the Left Hand in D-major" (1929-30) are projected simultaneously in a semi-anechoic chamber. Stop by the museum today and catch the exhibition in its opening hours. (: @bfa, Madison Mcgaw) #AnriSala 3d

newmuseum We're continuing our exploration of the @museumofcityny's collection for #MuseumInstaSwap! Back in 1905, the Third Avenue Elevated railway spanned the length of the Bowery. After the El was demolished in 1955, artists began moving to the area and converting decayed lofts into studios. 52 years later, the New Museum opened at 235 Bowery, just north of where the image above was shot. You can check out more than 125,000 other images from the City Museum's collection (available through their ongoing digitization projects) via link in our profile. Hope you enjoyed following today's #MuseumInstaSwap, and a big thanks to the City Museum for hosting us! 4d

newmuseum Installed in the @museumofcityny lobby, “Starlight (Hanging Grid II)” is a dazzling light installation, designed by Cooper Joseph Studio. Shaped in dialogue with the design of the building's historic stairway, the piece is a poignant reminder of how architecture can reflect and further the mission of a Museum--in this case to connect the city’s past and present. Similarly, the New Museum’s building was designed in response to the history and powerful personalities of both the institution and its storied site on the Bowery. #MuseumInstaSwap 4d

newmuseum “At the New Museum I am working with a space, the lobby gallery, that is a little bit like a storefront. The performative aspect of the work lies in this relationship: people that are out here eating their lunch or having their coffee, looking at people shopping in a contained, quarantined environment.” artist Pia Camil in conversation with @artspace’s Karen Rosenberg. You can “shop” Camil’s exhibition during our next Exchange Day, on Feb. 7, by swapping a personal item for one on view in the gallery. #PiaCamil (📸: Maris Hutchinson/EPW Studio) 5d

newmuseum We’re less than a week away from the opening of “Anri Sala: Answer Me.” Exploring how sound and music can engage architecture and history, the exhibition will feature extensive multichannel audio and video installations, and will unfold across three gallery floors, composing a symphonic experience specific to the New Museum. Pictured is “Ravel Ravel Unravel,” French Pavilion, 55th Venice Biennale. : Marc Domage #AnriSala 1w

newmuseum “Cheryl Donegan treats the sticky black heart of American Pop with a scintillating and showbiz-savvy touch. A stuntwoman with a go-get-’em panache and razzle-dazzle that one can only call Liza-with-a-Z!-Minnellian, Donegan just dives right into late-capitalist culture.” —@artforum. Pictured is Donegan's "Cellardoor," from the series "The Janice Tapes," 2000. #CherylDonegan 1w

newmuseum With “A Pot for a Latch,” Pia Camil invites 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 takes precedence over its monetary value. Join us February 7 from 2-4pm for the next Exchange Day. #PiaCamil 📸: Maris Hutchinson/EPW Studio 2w

newmuseum "Provided with a random bounty of found objects, Camil curates them into an inspiring installation that happily slides between registers, from the comic to the profound."—@blouin_artinfo's Scott Indrisek (@uniandchloe), who donated a painting, shown above, by his late father, Peter Indrisek. Join us for Camil's next Exchange Day on February 7, where you can swap a personal object for one on view in the exhibition. #PiaCamil 📸: Maris Hutchinson/EPW Studio 2w

newmuseum Pia Camil’s sculptural installation is inspired by the modular display systems used by vendors in her native Mexico City. Within our Lobby Gallery, Camil has created a succession of gridwall panels, complete with built-on hooks, shelves, and other fixtures commonly intended for store display that reference cheap commercial constructions, as well as the serial patterning in paintings and sculptures made by Minimalist artists such as Sol LeWitt or Agnes Martin. 3w
