New Works at 30

The 2023-24 season marks New Works 30th Anniversary!

In celebration of this milestone season, we are gathering the community to profile 30 individuals who have impacted the shape of New Works over the last three decades. This project has led us deep into the organizational archives of print materials, slides, VHS tapes, polaroid photos, and more, and created a space for rich and collaborative documentation.
