The New Museum, New York, has announced the launch of an $80m campaign to mark both its 40th anniversary and its 10th year on the Bowery. Having hosted its second triennial last year, it is currently the only institution in New York solely focused on contemporary art and the documentation of living artists. So far, they have already been gifted $43m from several members of their board of trustees. The donations will support a planned expansion of the museum’s programs.
