Playing Games And Deciding What’s Art At The New Museum

On Sunday I ventured to the New Museum, located on the Bowery. Founded in 1977 by Marcia Tucker,it’s the only museum worldwide that is exclusively devoted to presenting contemporary art from around the world. (Or so says Wikipedia.)  The current show is Polish artist Paweł Althamer with his work, The Neighbors.

A fun activity I like to do at the New Museum is play the game Art/NOT Art. How it works: while at the New Museum take various photos of items inside the facility, and have your friends determine if it’s Art or NOT Art.  Ready to play? Ok, let’s go. (Answers are underneath each photo):

How did you do? Not so good. See, it’s sometimes hard to determine what is art and what is NOT art!
