The Shed — one of the most significant additions to New York City’s cultural landscape in decades — finally has an opening date.On that day, April 5, the Shed is set to join a rare lineage of new institutions that offer wide-ranging, interdisciplinary programming on a large scale, like Lincoln Center in the 1960s, or the Museum of Modern Art in the late ’20s.

And for its inaugural season, the Shed — a flashy, 200,000-square-foot modular building designed by the firms Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group, at the heart of the Hudson Yards development in Manhattan — has commissioned more than a dozen exhibitions, performances and lectures with an aim of presenting both well-established and emerging artists from the worlds of theater, dance, visual art, poetry, film, and classical and pop music.
