The New Museum will be transforming an adjacent warehouse space into an “incubator” for hybrid art and design projects. The 11,000-sq.-ft space may be open as early as next summer, providing resources and workspaces to over sixty different creative companies 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week for “research and development, prototyping, experimentation, and interdisciplinary collaboration.”

Previously, it’s been utilized by the museum as a space for site specific installations and is currently being renovated to include conference rooms, screening rooms as well as studio space for resident artists. “We are very pleased to introduce our incubator as a new model to foster creative cultural practice and reinforce the Bowery as a place of meaningful innovation,” said the New Museum’s director Lisa Phillips.
