The Museum as Hub initiative supports art activities and experimentation; explores artistic, curatorial, and institutional practice; and serves as an important resource for the public to learn about contemporary art from around the world. Both a physical site and an expanding network of international art spaces, initiatives, and artists, the Museum as Hub investigates the potential for mediation and exchange realized through residencies, exhibitions, and public programs.
Since its launch in 2007 by the New Museum, the Museum as Hub initiative has worked closely with a group of partner institutions to produce diverse programming at the New Museum and internationally. Founding institutions include: art space pool, Seoul, Insa Art Space, Seoul, Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City, Museo Tamayo, Mexico City, Townhouse Gallery, Cairo, and the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven. Currently active partners are art space pool, Seoul, Beirut, Cairo, de_sitio, Mexico City, Inhotim, Brumadinho, Brazil, Miami Art Museum, Townhouse Gallery, Cairo, and the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven.
