bedtime stories

may - june, 2020


As part of its series of new digital initiatives, the New Museum presents Bedtime Stories, a project initiated by the artist Maurizio Cattelan in which Abraham Cruzvillegas, Minerva Cuevas, Gabriel Kuri, Adrián Villar Rojas, Damián Ortega and Jimmie Durham will participate. 


Inviting friends and other artists and performers he admires to keep us company, Cattelan imagined Bedtime Stories as a way of staying together during these days of isolation. Each participant has been asked to read a selection from their favorite book – a sentence, passage, chapter, or more – to be shared with the New Museum’s online audiences.
A new installment of Bedtime Stories will be made available each day through the end of June via this site. 


This week features a reading by Gabriel Kuri from Umberto Eco. Click here to visit the museum's site.
