The New Museum Store stocks giftables, art and design editions and books. 90% of the proceeds will go directly to furthering the New Museum's artistic and educational programs, which will be greatly enlarged in its new building.
Apart from presenting books and editions by noted artists like Mike Kelley, Jack Pierson and Zoe Leonard, the New Museum Store stays true to the New Museum's credo of presenting the under-represented: in its range of "artist-made products" it treads where few museum shops dare to tread, directly supporting emerging artists. Art collective Tulip Enterprises are proud that two of their "Ceramixed Plates" are part of this offering. Their faux Delfts Blauw porcelain plates, hand-painted and inscribed with "Include Me Out", thematize social (self)exclusion, sexuality and multiculturalism.
The New Museum was founded in 1977 by curator Marcia Tucker. Today it is the most important museum for contemporary art in New York, with an excellent world-wide reputation for curatorial daring and progressiveness. It stresses and exemplifies the internationality of art, and focusses on emerging artists and under-represented themes, media and developments.
