DESCRIPTION

The New Museum will present "The Last Newspaper," a major exhibition inspired by the ways artists approach the news and respond to the stories and images that command the headlines. The exhibition will animate the Museum with signature artworks and a constant flow of information-gathering and processing undertaken by organizations and artist groups that have been invited to inhabit offices within the museum's galleries. Partner organizations will use onsite offices to present their research, engage in rapid prototyping, and stage public dialogues, opening up the galleries as spaces of intellectual production as well as display. For visitors, "The Last Newspaper" will be a unique site of dialogue, participation, and critical thinking, posing new possibilities for a contemporary art museum experience.
