The New Museum Digital Archive contains documentation of the New Museum’s program and institutional history in the form of images, video, audio, publications and printed matter.

Since 1977 the New Museum has been in the forefront of presenting contemporary art and cultural practice in New York City. The Digital Archive provides researchers with free online access to primary source materials from New Museum exhibitions, public programs, and publications.

Through this interface, users can explore approximately 7,500 written and visual records, as well as a searchable database of over 4,000 artists, curators, and organizations associated with the New Museum’s programming. New materials are being processed, digitized, and added to the Digital Archive as they become available.

Also, check out “Ghosts in the Machine” at the New Museum: “Occupying the Museum’s three main galleries, the exhibition examines artists’ embrace of and fascination with technology, as well as their prescient awareness of the ways in which technology can transform subjective experiences.”
