New Museum opens on December 1, 2007 + Target Saturdays @ The Brooklyn Museum
The New Museum, located at 235 Bowery (at Prince between Stanton and Rivington Streets, one and a half blocks south of Houston), opens on Saturday, December 1, 2007 with Target 30 Free Hours. Established in the mid-70s by Marcia Tucker (then curator at The Whitney Museum of American Art) out of a need for a contemporary art museum in New York, The New Museum has gone from was first housed in The Tribeca Fine Arts Building to having its own 60,000 square foot building (designed by the SANAA firm under the direction of Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa). With a bundle of exhibits slated until Summer 2008, The New Museum promises to deliver "new art, new ideas".
