New Museum Bedtime Stories

In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. Please follow ArtNews for updates.

As part of its series of new digital initiatives, the New Museum presents “Bedtime Stories,” a project initiated by the artist Maurizio Cattelan.

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. Some chose to read existing works, others to read their own writings, still others to create impromptu performances. Whether drawn from memory, imagination, or cherished volumes kept close at hand, the recordings by artists were captured quickly in an unfiltered fashion on phones or laptops in their homes or studios around the world.

A new installment of “Bedtime Stories” will be made available each day through the end of June via this site. The first week features bedtime stories from Iggy PopTacita DeanAbraham Cruzvillegas, and Andra Ursuta.
