New York’s New Museum, founded in 1977, is a contemporary art museum home to new art and new ideas that welcomes the work of artists whose work hasn’t had much exposure.
The current building dates from 2007. Before this date, the museum had been located in different buildings: an office on the 4th floor of Hudson St, a space in the New School Gallery and a permanent exhibition in SoHo.
The museum has seven floors, of which three are for exhibitions. On the top floor you’ll find a trendy terrace with very good views of the city.
The museum offers free audio guides for iPods.
The New Museum might one day include a collection that is worth visiting, but for now, every time we have been to this gallery, we are always left wondering if the whole thing is a farce...
The best part of the visit is the façade of the building and the 7th floor terrace.
