Visitors to the exhibition, "Puppies Puppies (Jade Guanaro Kuriki-Olivo): Nothing New," may encounter the artist lounging on a bed, sitting at her desk, or hosting guests in a restaging of her bedroom. Playing with visibility and performativity, Kuriki-Olivo has installed “smart glass” that she can turn on or off to obscure or reveal her activities within this central section of the gallery. When the artist is present, visitors can observe her through the glass (if Kuriki-Olivo allows), or through two CCTV-style cameras that are also constantly filming her. When she is offsite, viewers can still follow her actions via a live video feed that is periodically streamed into the Museum’s Lobby.
This installation marks a sharp pivot in Kuriki-Olivo's practice away from anonymity and towards radical visibility and (literal) transparency. As a whole, "Nothing New" evokes complex layers of intimacy, pointing to both Kuriki-Olivo’s lived experiences and the societal and technological apparatuses by which we relate to ourselves and each other.

The artist Jade Guanaro Kuriki-Olivio (aka Puppies Puppies) enters her exhibition, "Nothing New," through a traditional Japanese torii gate. She then passes by a rock garden inspired by Ryōan-ji (the Temple of the Dragon at Peace) in Kyoto, Japan, before arriving at the central vignette, a duplicate of her bedroom.
Like the garden at Ryōan-ji, Kuriki-Olivo’s rock garden is both an abstract composition of natural elements and a space for meditation and reflection—a prime example of the Japanese concept of wabi sabi, the appreciation for the ephemeral or fleeting. For the artist—whose lineage is both Japanese and Taíno—the simplicity and ephemerality of the rock garden is also deeply intertwined with her personal history. This installation is emblematic of how Kuriki-Olivo repurposes readymade or found elements, including cultural sites, to build a personal mythology.

Past work by Jade Guanaro Kuriki-Olivo, widely known by the moniker Puppies Puppies, centered a refusal to be seen through her use of proxies, avatars, and performances in absentia. But in “Nothing New,” her first solo exhibition in New York, Puppies Puppies invites visitors to experience her life while she inhabits the Lobby Gallery. Using a fogging glass mechanism that reveals or obscures her activities when in the gallery—which includes a replica of her bedroom—Puppies Puppies plays with the trappings of visibility, representation, and cultural consumption. Cameras also film her as she moves between the Museum and her apartment (located a few blocks away) and navigates day-to-day life in the city, bluring the boundaries between the artist's public and private life while also destabilizing the distinctions between URL and IRL existence.

Now entering: "The City of Ladies"
On the Fourth Floor of "Judy Chicago: Herstory," a total installation featuring Judy Chicago's embroideries, sculptures, drawings, and carpet design simultaneously contextualizes the artist's practice and breaks the patriarchal art historical paradigm.
Bringing together artworks and archival materials from more than 80 women and genderq***r artists, writers, and cultural figures including—Hilma af Klint, Hildegard von Bingen, Claude Cahun, Elizabeth Catlett, Simone de Beauvoir, Artemisia Gentileschi, Emma Goldman, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Charlotte Salomon, Remedios Varo, and Virginia Woolf, among others—"City of Ladies" is a testament to Chicago’s manifold contributions as an activist, researcher, and cultural preservationist throughout her sixty-year career. bit.ly/JudyChicagoHerstory
"Judy Chicago makes Herstory," writes The New York Times in their profile of the pioneering feminist artist, whose six-decade survey just opened at the New Museum.
"Now...the art world is paying attention to what she has been saying: that when art by women is viewed holistically, through the arc of history, it can shake everything—us—to the core."
The pioneering feminist artist rules the New Museum with a six-decade survey, but she shares the stage with her sisterhood.
JUDY CHICAGO: HERSTORY OPENS TODAY
Taking over four floors of the New Museum, “Herstory” is the first comprehensive New York museum survey of work by Judy Chicago. The exhibition brings together six decades of the artist’s work, as well as an exhibition-within-the-exhibition spotlighting women essential to the history of art and Chicago’s own practice, from Artemisia Gentileschi to Georgia O'Keeffe.
“Herstory” is the first comprehensive New York museum survey of work by Judy Chicago (b. 1939, Chicago, IL).

For her upcoming exhibition "Nothing New," conceptual and performance artist Jade Guanaro Kuriki-Olivo (aka Puppies Puppies) will transform the glass-walled Lobby Gallery into a mise-en-scène of her daily life. Puppies Puppies will use a fogging glass mechanism to alternately obscure and reveal her activities in the gallery—a portion of which will be a duplicate of the artist’s actual bedroom—foregrounding themes of visibility, representation, and cultural consumption.
Kuriki-Olivo's past work centered a refusal to be seen—she has used proxies to speak or act on her behalf during studio visits, interviews, and performances; donned costumes that function as avatars, dressing as SpongeBob, a Minion, Gollum, Freddy Krueger, and Lady Liberty; and staged performances in absentia. “Nothing New” marks an important shift in the artist’s practice, as Kuriki-Olivo explores new registers of transparency and obfuscation by inviting visitors to experience her life as if through a screen.
"Nothing New" opens October 12, only at the New Museum! Learn more:https://bit.ly/3Zl70e6.

"I never knew that art could take institutional form. I always thought, and still think, you make art...for the people around you." ✍️ Pepón Osorio
Pepón Osorio's immersive multimedia installations break through Museum conventions. Inspired by everyday environments—from home interiors to barbershops to classrooms—the artist's ornate scenes also confront critical issues facing Latinx and working class communities: https://newmu.org/AdBb7M
"Scene of the Crime (Whose Crime?)" was modeled after an affordable housing unit in the South Bronx neighborhood where Osorio worked as a child services case worker in the 1980s, and reflects on the social impact of Hollywood’s violent representations of Latinx people. When it was first displayed at the Whitney, Osorio described it as a "a piece of the South Bronx...placed in the middle of Madison Avenue."

Wynnie Mynerva () sees subversion and transgression as forms of rebellion that can free us from gender hierarchies and other confining myths. In "Wynnie Mynerva: The Original Riot," the artist reimagines the story of Adam and Eve—in which God creates Eve from Adam's rib—as a gender-expansive narrative that posits Eve and Lilith as original co-conspirators against a patriarchal power. Featuring the largest painting ever displayed at the New Museum, this site-specific installation also incorporates a sculptural element made from the artist's own "Adam's rib," which they had surgically removed for this work.
"Wynnie Mynerva: The Original Riot" opens June 29: https://newmu.org/83sW5p
The artist Mire Lee draws on architecture, horror, po*******hy, and cybernetics to create animatronic sculptures that appear to be both living organisms and biological machines. Evoking a diverse range of emotions from melancholy to disgust to love to pity, these works offer a visceral means to describe the dissonant emotions that exist between the realms of the technological and the physical.
On the opening night of her exhibition, "Mire Lee: Black Sun," the artist will be in conversation with curator Garry Carrion-Murayari on Thursday, June 29 at 6 p.m.: https://newmu.org/cmYcZb

"Mutu radicalizes clichéd associations of nature as an eternally forgiving female-mother, and expresses a deep sense of humankind’s complex, equal and non-negotiable coexistence with one another and all organisms." 📝 Victoria Miro
Made from Kenyan soil, wood, and organic material grown and found around Wangechi Mutu's Nairobi studio, "Sentinel I" explores the ambiguous relationship between humanity and nature. Simultaneously expressing our roles as creators, protectors, and destroyers of nature, "Sentinel I" addresses the complexities and contradictions that arise out of our interconnectedness with the natural world: https://newmu.org/yrqSxD

The New Museum will present a major solo exhibition of the work of Wangechi Mutu (b. 1972, Nairobi), which will bring together over one hundred works from across her twenty-five-year career.
In "Sisters" (2019), Wangechi Mutu revisits themes common to much of her work: doubling, interconnectivity, and reciprocity. Two bronze casts of femme heads face each other at an angle, placed on a mirror surface that reflects the contours of their faces and hair. Simultaneously intimate and universal, "Sisters" examines the consumption of femininity and how the identity category of woman is experienced both internally and in connection with others.
