The New Museum is devoted to presenting, studying, and interpreting contemporary art.
Not a collecting institution, the New Museum is known internationally for the adventurousness and global scope of its curatorial program. Every exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue, documenting the exhibition for present and future audiences.
The Museum is located in a notable seven-story, eight-level structure designed by Tokyo-based architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA, which is clad in a seamless, anodized expanded aluminum mesh. The facility includes a theater, five floors of gallery spaces, and a distinctive Sky Room with panoramic views of lower Manhattan.
