THE NEW MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART, New York City, received a two-year grant of $44,000 in support of its Public Access Program. The New Museum, founded in 1977, is a contemporary art museum with an international reputation. Dynamic solo exhibitions and landmark group shows define key moments in the development of contemporary art, reflect the global nature of art today and span a vast array of cultural activities and media. The Museum is guided by the conviction that contemporary art is a vital social force that extends beyond the art world into the broader culture. In March 1998, The New Museum launched its Public Access initiative (now called Media Lounge) in order to connect the work of emerging artists with a broad general public. Media Lounge is the first museum space in New York dedicated to new media. Designed by LOT/EK, a young cutting-edge architectural firm, Media Lounge presents digitally manipulated video works, experimental video and sound installations, computer generated projections, web-based and CD-ROM art, and wide range of new media events. Media Lounge seeks to establish new media as a vital artistic force for the 21st Century, explore how these works are presented and interpreted, provide visibility for the new media community within a well known visual arts organization, and encourage emerging artists working in this area. After years of funding for the On View program, the Jerome Foundation shifted its funding to Media Lounge because these exhibitions, often featuring the works of emerging artists, are designed to explore new paradigms of visitor interaction by reducing some of the barriers between contemporary art and museum visitors. This program encourages under-recognized and emerging artists to alter radically the traditional exhibition framework.
