Return address

Anyone who visits New York now can get to see the New Museum’s new building on The Bowery. It has been designed by Japanese architects SANAA - Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa. The new New Museum is yet another in a series of destination museum buildings that started with the Guggenheim in Bilbao. If you're wondering why we are telling you this, it's because next to the New Museum is a building that will be recognised by a few of you. It has long been a New York destination for many New Zealanders involved in art: the studio and home of painter Max Gimblett.
