New Museum  New Art, New Ideas | 235 Bowery

Make a new ID with copies of your old ones at the #paulramirezjonas exhibition, "Half-Truths." Visitors are invited to work with a facilitator to deconstruct photocopies of their school IDs, transportation passes, credit cards, and licenses, creating a new self-determined identity within the limits of state and corporate data.

Find someone who loves you like #UgoRondinone loves #JohnGiorno. (Enough to organize a multi-part art installation, including this mural in our lobby, in honor of your 80th birthday.)

"I have a fascination with the unnatural world, things that go beyond reality." —#ElaineCameronWeir, whose work is on view in the museum lobby gallery through Sept. 3. .

"There’s something very creative about lying. Much more creative than being truthful." Artist @paulramirezjonas's interactive work "Alternative Facts" requires visitors to tell a lie, which is then notarized as truth. The cost of this legal transformation requires payment of a gold coin, which the facilitator creates by chemically altering visitors’ spare change. Come create an untruth on our fifth floor!

"It's as if they haunt a canvas that can’t quite pin them down."—@thenation on the figures of #LynetteYiadomBoakye. Seventeen of her recent paintings are on view now in “Under-Song For A Cipher.” [Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, “An Amber Cluster,” 2017 (detail). Oil on linen, 51 1/8 x 31 ½ in (130 x 80 cm).

"I paint by instinct and I paint out of passion and anger and violence and sadness and a certain fetishism and out of joy and melancholy together and out of anger especially."—#CarolRama.

In a political climate of "alternative facts," is it possible to collectively create and agree upon truth? For his exhibition and residency “Half-Truths,” @paulramirezjonas employs the mechanisms of bureaucracies and law as a starting point from which to consider truth. His installation on our fifth floor includes two pieces defined by direct transactions between the audience and the artist or facilitators. Come make a fake ID or have a lie notarized as the truth! #paulramirezjonas
