Manhattan's New Museum opened in 1977 with the mission of promoting "New Art, New Ideas." Forty years later, the New Museum has relaunched its Digital Archive, featuring over 10,000 works of art - including video, audio, and visual pieces. Visitors are invited to conduct a text search of this extensive archive or browse materials in a number of ways. Those interested in learning more about the museum's forty-year history may want to start with Chronology, which shows an interactive timeline of the museum's history that incorporates slideshows from famous exhibitions throughout the years. Alternatively, visitors may want to visit the Exhibitions tab, which allows users to browse by Exhibition Type (including solo exhibitions by Carol Rama, Chris Ofili, Faith Ringgold, and many others), Series, Artists, etc. Another highlight of this collection are the Sound and Video sections, which include interviews and performances.
