Who’s Afraid of the New Now?: 40 Artists in Dialogue

Who’s Afraid of the New Now?: 40 Artists in Dialogue
New Museum 40th Anniversary


Paul Chan and Carroll Dunham
Saturday, December 2, 5:00PM


New Museum
235 Bowery
New York, NY 10002


Borrowing its title from a work of the same name by Allen Ruppersberg—who had his first New York survey at the New Museum in 1985—the event features a selection of public conversations with artists whose exhibitions, works, and interventions have shaped and transformed the identity and history of the New Museum. Engaging in dialogue with each other, the forty artists will discuss an array of topics related to their practice, their history with the Museum, and beyond.


The Museum is offering free admission for all visitors and extended museum hours from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on December 2 and 3. The Museum will also reinstall Bruce Nauman’s iconic video No, No New Museum (Clown Torture Series) (1987) in the Museum’s window, just as the work was originally presented during Nauman’s solo exhibition at the Museum in 1987.
