*Please note that New Museum “First” Saturdays for Families this month will take place on the second Saturday of the month due to the holiday on January 1.

Explore the exhibition “Free,” which includes work by twenty-three artists working across mediums: video, installation, sculpture, photography, the internet, and sound. The exhibition reflects artistic strategies that have emerged from the concept of free access to information and the notion of public space as it has been impacted by the internet.

Images, texts, music, and ideas are shared via the web, expanding what we are able to see, know, and imagine. Discover the work of Takeshi Murata and Lisa Oppenheim and then participate in an action-based workshop to produce a work or art inspired by the idea of free culture.

Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children four to fifteen years old, 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.
