Kvadrat & New Museum

March 2017

The New Museum in New York and design textile manufacturer Kvadrat announced a new three-year initiative which will support selected emerging artists in the production of new work, resulting in three solo exhibitions at the Museum over three years. The artists will be chosen by the New Museum, focusing on artists who have not yet had a major museum exhibition in New York.

Kvadrat was established in Denmark in 1968 and has deep roots in Scandinavia’s design tradition. The brand has a long history of supporting artists in the production of new works, having collaborated with celebrated artists such as Thomas Demand, Olafur Eliasson, Sarah Lucas, Cildo Meireles, Philippe Parreno, Rosemarie Trockel, and many others.
