Night School is an artist commission in the form of a temporary school. The yearlong program uses the Museum as a site to engage the public. Seminars, workshops, screenings, and lectures explore thematic components addressed from the perspective of ongoing research and production, and constitute the core structure of the School. Night School draws upon a group of local and international artists, writers, and theorists to conceptualize and conduct the program, including Boris Groys, Martha Rosler, Liam Gillick, Walid Raad and Jalal Toufic, Okwui Enwezor, Hu Fang and Zhang Wei, Paul Chan, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Maria Lind, and Raqs Media Collective. Lectures, screenings, and conversations take place in the New Museum's theater and fifth-floor Museum as Hub space, as well as informal locations throughout the neighborhood.
