New Museum First Saturdays for Families: Art and Motion

June 6 2009

Awkwardness, humor, and bodies thrown into unpredictable timing are an important part of the work Loneliness by Faye Driscoll. How awkward can you be? How funny can you be just by using your body and a series of movements? Families will be invited to participate in movement workshops to explore what it means to be completely unpredictable.

This is the third of three programs focusing on the New Museum’s first Triennial, “The Generational: Younger Than Jesus,”an exhibition of work by fifty artists under the age of thirty-three, a generation often referred to as the Millennials, Generation Y, or the iGeneration. The survey considers the work these artists have created to date, tapping into the different perspectives and shared experiences that are shaping contemporary art and the future of global culture.

From 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., families are invited into our theater to view a 30-minute program of short films provided by Brooklyn International Film Festival’s kidsfilmfest.

New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children 4 to 15 years old, and includes free New Museum admission for up to 2 adults per family. Children under 18 are always admitted free. No preregistration is required. Tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
