On Saturday, the New Museum staged its annual block party in and around Sara D. Roosevelt Park. It was an afternoon filled with diverse performances, hands-on projects and workshops. Tim Schreier stopped by to capture some of the day’s images. Click through for more of his photos.
One-Day Exhibition of New Sculptures Made On-Site by Paweł Althamer & Collaborators
Since the opening of Paweł Althamer’s “The Neighbors” in February, Althamer has worked in partnership with a range of artists, friends, and collaborators to create sixteen new sculptures. During this period, Althamer also ran sculpture and film workshops with neighbors and a group from the Bowery Mission. Together, they will present a one-day exhibition of the new works on Thursday April 17, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., in the New Museum’s storefront space at 231 Bowery. In addition, a number of artworks by Althamer’s collaborator, Malian master sculptor Youssouf Dara, will also be on view. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
Second and Fourth Floor exhibits will remain on view through April 20, 2014.
ALSO COMING UP: Visitors Can Take Home a Piece of Draftsmen’s Congress from April 23–27
Draftsmen’s Congress—the collective painting project that has been evolving on the Fourth Floor—will come to a close on Sunday April 20. Over the course of the past ten weeks, the blank white space of the New Museum’s Fourth Floor gallery has been transformed through the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings by thousands of Museum visitors and ninety invited community organizations, including school and adult education groups, hobbyists, political activists, and many other formal and informal organizations. From Wednesday April 23 through Sunday April 27, Draftsmen’s Congress will be disassembled during the Museum’s public hours: the painted walls will be cut up and distributed to visitors for free.
