Playing for Keeps at the New Museum

By Allison Merchant

August 3, 2016

Currently on view at the New Museum is a multi-floor exhibition highlighting the effort to protect and preserve various objects and images. The show “The Keeper” honors the practice of art through preservation and collection.

It features work by approximately 28 artists, showcased over four floors of the museum. The central force of this exhibition is the display by Ydessa Hendeles Partners (The Teddy Bear Project) (2002). This work is composed of more than 3,000 family-album photographs of people posing with teddy bears.

“The Keeper” is filled with multiple media work and varied practices in art. It intrigues the viewer of the “why” behind people collecting and saving items. It will make you wonder what determines value, who determines value, and what is worth keeping?

The exhibition remains open at the New Museum through September 25.
