Video: The New Museum of Contemporary Art


 

Contemporary ArtThe Museum presents the work of under-recognized artists, and has mounted ambitious surveys of important figures such as Ana Mendieta, William Kentridge, David Wojnarowicz, Paul McCarthy and Andrea Zittel before they received widespread public recognition. In 2003, the New Museum presented the highly regarded exhibition Black President: The Art and Legacy of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

Continuing its focus of exhibiting emerging international artists, the museum organized the much discussed and visited exhibition, The Generational: Younger Than Jesus, in 2009.
