This project is part of the exhibition Museum as Hub: Six Degrees

New Museum

In "Museum as Hub: Six Degrees" artists use the real estate of the New Museum as organizing principle, departure point, vista, and classroom to imagine the changing relevance of the Museum and its environs. Expanding the concept of an exhibition, "Six Degrees" refers to the angle of the Bowery off New York City’s grid and begins with Night School, a monthly seminar series organized by Anton Vidokle that features artists, writers, and curators in conversation with the public over the course of the year. Works by Dave McKenzie, My Barbarian (Jade Gordon, Malik Gaines, and Alexandro Segade), Martha Rosler, Lisa Sigal, Ginger Brooks Takahashi, and Anton Vidokle continue to occupy and engage the neighborhood by employing nearby buildings as canvas, local artists as collaborators, and New Museum territory as a meeting place, recital hall, and laboratory.

Organized by Eungie Joo, Keith Haring Director and Curator of Education and Public Programs.
