“I always feel like the margins tell you more than the center of the page ever could.” —Marcia Tucker, Museum Founder

Out of Bounds is a new series of gallery-based talks, readings, performances, and more that seeks to expand the ways we think about what’s on display in the New Museum galleries. Bringing together artists, specialists, and workers from fields beyond the art world, these engagements expand on themes found in the artworks and exhibitions on view.

For the inaugural Out of Bounds gallery talk, join Nick Podgurski, Queens-based composer, educator, artist, and contemplative mentor, in the Lobby Gallery’s exhibition “Vivian Caccuri and Miles Greenberg: The Shadow of Spring.”

The Out of Bounds series is organized by Austin D Bowes, Assistant Operations Specialist, and Jasmin Tabatabaee, Assistant Education Specialist.


Out of Bounds is free with paid Museum admission, but attendance is limited. A general admission ticket must be purchased in order to reserve a spot. Members can also reserve through the button below.

The program will be presented onsite at the New Museum. Vaccination and masks are strongly recommended, but not required. Please review the New Museum’s COVID guidelines in advance of your visit.


We strive to make our programs as accessible as possible. For full accessibility information, including services available by request, please click here.

About the Speaker

Nick Podgurski (b. 1984, Baltimore, MD, USA; he/him) is a composer, educator, artist, and contemplative mentor living in Queens, NY. He is founder of New Firmament Institute which hosts lectures and workshops, curates an ongoing live series, and releases recorded music. Podgurski has also mediated groups inspired by the work of David Bohm and J.G. Bennett, has programmed a weekly playlist-by-mail, and hosted online book streaming. His current work focuses on cultivating and directing group attention through “harmonic module” compositions. The compositions are intended to stimulate new ways of co-creating meaning and harmony on a vibrational, compositional, local scale. With this experience as a touchstone the works aim to orient themselves towards the World Community. Recent works include MONAD: for ensemble (2021), EMANATIONS I & II (2022), The True Character of Time (2018), and Felt In A Flashing Light That Illumines the Desert (2019). He is a recipient of the NYFA City Artist’s Corp Grant for MONAD and he has been hosted by Roulette Intermedium, Pioneer Works, Moers Festival, Primavera Sound, FIMAV Victoriaville, and Jazz Jantar, among others.
