New Museum Experimental Study Program, fall 2019

While the Museum remains closed, we’ll celebrate the 2020 spring season of our Experimental Study Program (ESP) virtually through our Instagram Stories. Head over to our Instagram page (@newmuseum) starting on April 29.

Now in its fourteenth season, this program provides youth with the chance to learn about contemporary art and engage in intimate, critical discussions about culture. This spring, ESP explored different ways in which contemporary artists employ portraiture and figuration, especially through the work of Jordan Casteel and Peter Saul. In a series of Instagram Stories, participants will share insights that they have gained through workshops with Jordan Casteel at the Museum and art-making at home along with weekly discussions with peers to consider how portraiture might be a means to connect during a time of social distancing.


Generous lead support is provided by the Keith Haring School, Teen, and Family Programs Fund.

The New Museum’s Experimental Study Program is made possible by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield’s Bruce Eagelson Arts Education Program.

New Museum school and teen programs are made possible, in part, by Con Edison, Bloomingdale’s, the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Additional endowment support is provided by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund; the Skadden, Arps Education Programs Fund; and the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fund for Education Programs at the New Museum.
