December 14 2013 at 14:00

This fall, the New Museum launches a new lecture series, Outside the Box, a roster of gallery-based talks given by a variety of guest speakers over the course of a season. In this new series, lecturers with diverse backgrounds and affinities will address the New Museum’s current exhibition(s), kicking off with “Chris Burden: Extreme Measures,” 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 exhibitions or themes emergent in artists’ works from the various positions they occupy, be they academic, personal, political, etc., and engage in rich investigations that illuminate and probe the Museum’s current exhibition program.
