Outside the Box offers a roster of gallery-based talks given by a variety of guest speakers over the course of a season. In this series, lecturers with diverse backgrounds and affinities will address the New Museum’s current exhibition “Jim Shaw: The End is Here” in forty-five- to sixty-minute presentations taking place exclusively in the Museum’s galleries. As a way to emphasize the Museum’s strong commitment to new art and new ideas, Outside the Box talks are open to the public and are intended to provide participants with multidisciplinary perspectives on New Museum exhibitions. To this end, lecturers will speak about the exhibition or themes emergent in Shaw’s works from the various positions they occupy—be they academic, personal, political, etc.—and will engage in rich investigations that will illuminate and probe the Museum’s current exhibition program.
