New Museum  New Art, New Ideas

Originally installed in the dining room of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud’s former home for #SarahLucas’s 2000 exhibition at @freudmuseum, “Beyond the Pleasure Principle” muses on the psychoanalytic union of erotic and destructive impulses.

On December 1st, the annual #DayWithoutArt—a national day of action in response to the AIDS crisis—we'll present “Stonewall is Not Here Yet,” an afternoon of readings organized by artist Sharon Hayes and @chrisevargas on the occasion of the exhibition and residency #MOTHA. This event will bring together artists, lawyers, poets, and activists—including Janani Balasubramanian, Eduardo Restrepo Castaño, Joan Gibbs, and Río Sofia—to share texts that reflect on queer liberation and futurity. Free with paid admission in our Sky Room. Click the link in our bio for more info 👉 .

#PipilottiRist's mesmerizing works envelop viewers in vibrantly colored kaleidoscopic projections that fuse the natural world with the technological sublime. "4th Floor To Mildness" (2016), which was on view as part of Rist's first major survey in New York at the New Museum, is currently on view in London as part of #StrangeDays, copresented by @thevinylfactory and on view at 180 The Strand @thestoresdotcom. On view through December 9.

“Blood In My Milk” brings @mariannasimnett's many characters in dialogue with one another across time and space—medical experts and scientists perform routine injections and operations alongside children’s games of hide-and-seek, farmers carry out disinfection rituals and cockroaches turn into biobots— to construct paranoid tales of sickness and transformation, often with Simnett herself as the protagonist. On view in the South Galleries through January 6. #MariannaSimnett

Now on view: a selection of videos by Dynasty Handbag (@dynastyhandbag), who is best known for her "falling-apart stand-up" shows delivered in polyester suits, spandex leotards, and ripped pantyhouse. On view on the Lower Level through January 6, 2019. .

#SarahLucas’s “Bunnies” sit atop and around a traditional snooker table used for English billiards in “Bunny Gets Snookered” (1997). The installation is a recreation of the original configuration of this series, which was presented at @sadiecoleshq in 1997.

Tomorrow at 7 p.m., join scholars Kevin Mumford, Harriet F. Senie, and Jeanne Vaccaro with @chrisevargas for a panel considering the histories and futures of monuments in the United States, with a particular focus on the possibilities and challenges of memorializing queer and trans histories. Link in bio for tickets!

#VOTE TOMORROW! Show us your “I voted” sticker tomorrow, November 6, and we’ll give you half off admission.

For her first US solo museum exhibition, Marguerite Humeau (@marguerite_humeau) studied the origins of prehistoric female goddess statuettes found throughout the world. Her research expands on the idea that early modern humans may have ingested animal brains for their psychoactive effects. "Birth Canal" is on view through January 6! #MargueriteHumeau

Happy Saturday! #SarahLucas's plaster "Muses" bend and recline atop domestic items ranging from washing machines, freezers, chairs, desks, and toilets.

Congratulations to our 2018 NextGen honoree Laure Prouvost! #NMNextGen

Last chance to see Gelare Khoshgozaran’s (@rearleftist) video works, on view through Sunday November 4. Khoshgozaran’s work often speaks to the personal impact of exile and political asylum as well as the violence enacted through representations of the Middle East. Six of her works are on view on the Lower Level of the Museum. #ScreensSeries
