“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 series of talks, readings, performances, and more that seeks to expand how we think about what’s on display in the New Museum. 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.


This program has reached capacity.
Check-in for this program will be in the Lobby at 10:45 a.m., before the Museum opens. When everyone has arrived the tour will go up to the Fourth Floor.


Stools without backs will be provided while in the galleries, and chairs with backs will be provided during the second part of the tour. A checklist with images will be provided via email to registrants prior to the tour.

For all accessibility questions or requests, please contact Jasmin Tabatabaee at
