First Saturdays for Families: Memory, Movement, and Space

First Saturdays for Families: Alternative Migrations, 2018

Join us for Family Day presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Alexandra Pirici: Co-natural,” on view at the New Museum from February 6 to April 15, 2018. Pirici’s exhibition uses live performance and a hologram of a performer to consider how presence can be pieced together from both images and physical bodies. As the ongoing performance of movement and voice progresses over the course of each day, bodies disperse and come together in reference to different histories and memories. Families are invited to take turns as choreographers and performers in the Sky Room, reinterpreting images of monuments and works of art. Using their bodies as a medium, families will consider how gestures and interactions can transform space.

New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children aged between four and twelve years, and includes free New Museum admission for up to two adults per family. Children under eighteen are always admitted free. No preregistration is required. Space is limited, and tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Your entire party must be present; tickets will not be given to partial parties.
