Exhibitions: On View program
"In December 1984, the New Museum merged many of its spaces—WorkSpace, the New Work Gallery, and the Broadway and Mercer Street Windows—into one program called On View. As an ongoing presentation of various contemporary works, On View enables curators to “respond to the constantly changing focus of contemporary art and to present new works of art to the public directly from the artists’ studios.”1
"Presents work that has not yet received significant exposure in New York, or new work by better-known artists. Now encompassing, The New Work Gallery, The Window on Broadway, and WorkSpace, this format allows us greater flexibility to show work without the usual two-year lead time necessitated by the organization of a major exhibition.2
