Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The first new art museum ever constructed from the ground up below 14th Street, the aptly named New Museum marks a major contribution to the continuing revitalization of downtown Manhattan. The bold seven-storey building, designed by the cutting-edge Tokyo architectural firm Sejima + Nishizawa/SANAA, opened in December 2007, housing three main gallery levels, a theatre, a café and roof terraces. The focus here is on emerging media and surveys of important but under-recognised artists—further evidence of its pioneering spirit.
