The New Museum announces its fall 2019 season of public programming. Highlights include talks and programs in conjunction with the exhibitions Hans Haacke: All Connected and Carmen Argote: As Above, So Below. This season, the Department of Education and Public Engagement also introduces its new mission, values, and methods, which include a focus on cultivating growth—aesthetic, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual—through inquiry, and strengthening people’s connections with themselves, one another, and the wider world.

All programs take place at the New Museum.

Out of Bounds: The Collected Writings of Marcia Tucker Book Launch and Panel Discussion
