New Art, New Ideas
As we enter our fortieth year, we take
this occasion to reaffirm our core
values, reflect on our history, confront
the present, and continue to imagine
We believe in the essential role of culture to a free and open civil society.
The Museum has an international reach
and we work with artists and partners across the globe. Our programs and collaborations provide a platform for cross-cultural dialogue, fostering empathy, mutual understanding, and respect.
The free flow of ideas and of people is essential to what we do. We oppose xenophobia and discrimination and remain steadfastly committed to the fundamental American principles of free expression and open engagement.
