José León Cerrillo, “Hotel Edén,” 2009. Exhibition view: Proyectos Monclova, Mexico City
Join us from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Sky Room for a family workshop offered in conjunction with the 2015 Triennial: “Surround Audience,” on view from February 25 to May 24, 2015. A signature initiative of the New Museum, the Triennial is the only recurring international exhibition in New York City devoted to early-career artists from around the world.
We invite families to work with New Museum educators to experiment with a range of materials and think about place and space in different ways. Visitors can participate in multiple projects inspired by 2015 Triennial artists José León Cerrillo, Avery K. Singer, and artist collective DIS that reframe the space of the Sky Room and create new places from old ones.
New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children aged between three and eight 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.
