Join us for Family Day presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Thomas Bayrle: Playtime,” on view at the New Museum from June 20 to September 2, 2018. Influenced by consumerism and advertising in 1960s Germany, Thomas Bayrle’s works combine endlessly repeating units to create large, complex images. These “superforms” appear computer-generated at first glance, but most are hand-drawn by the artist. Inspired by Bayrle’s works, families will be invited to play with images to make large composite pictures of their own.
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.
