This summer the New Museum presents The Keeper, a major exhibition dedicated to the act of preserving and collecting objects, artworks, and images. A reflection on the impulse to save both the most precious and the apparently valueless, the exhibition brings together a variety of imaginary museums, personal collections, and unusual assemblages, revealing the devotion with which artists, collectors, scholars, and hoarders have created sanctuaries for endangered images and artifacts. In surveying varied techniques of display, the exhibition also reflects on the function and responsibility of museums within multiple economies of desire. The Keeper opens on July 20, 2016. The centerpiece of this exhibition is Partners (The Teddy Bear Project) (2002), a vast display conceived by Ydessa Hendeles.

The exhibited works articulate divisive fissures of political and economic disparities existing beyond sanctioned consensus, and provoke the agonistic practice of valuing and sustaining the dissent—democratic dialectics advocated by art critic Claire Bishop.
