Join us for a New Perspectives tour considering works of contemporary art that reimagine, reconfigure, and revise canonical and traditional histories. In radically different modes, artists Aslı Çavuşoğlu, Sarah Lucas, and Chris E. Vargas all destabilize historical narratives that for too long have excluded women, queer, trans, and racialized individuals, not to mention the ways in which these identities intersect. Together, we will explore these artists’ works and the alternative sides of history they offer.

New Perspectives tours are led by the New Museum Teaching Fellow, an emerging scholar in art history or a related field. The topics of the tours are based on the Fellow’s ongoing research and change monthly, engaging participants in uniquely focused examinations of selected objects and installations. To read descriptions of current and upcoming New Perspectives tours, please view the calendar. New Perspectives tours are free with Museum admission. Due to limited capacity, please preregister here and meet in the Lobby at the time of the tour.

New Museum Teaching Fellow Troizel Carr is a doctoral student in the Department of Performance Studies at New York University, where he is beginning research on black children’s figurations in post-emancipation art and literature.


This program is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
