No Permanent Collection
Since it was founded in 1977, the New Museum has showcased contemporary art from artists all around the world. There is no permanent collection; exhibits are constantly changing and cover a wide variety of genres. The exhibits are chosen to reflect the museum’s mission of offering “New Art and New Ideas.” Visitors will experience works in a broad range of mediums such as sculpture, painting, photography and video. The museum is known for showing works by renowned contemporary artists before they became famous.
What you’ll find at the New Museum are exhibitions that are constantly changing, from experimental film installations to large shows that immerse the viewer into the exhibition and take over several floors of the building. Some of the world’s leading collectors of contemporary art have had their holdings displayed at the New Museum. In an exhibition curated by world-famous artist Jeff Koons, select pieces from the celebrated collection of renowned collector and philanthropist Dakis Joannou were shown.
