U.S. NEW YORK. "The Ungovernables". 2012 New Museum Triennial to open in New York
13/02/2012 10:33:37

The 2012 New Museum Triennial is the only recurring exhibition in the United States devoted to presenting young artists from around the globe. Opening to the public on February 15, the 2012 New Museum Triennial will feature thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives—totaling over fifty participants—born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US. The exhibition, titled “The Ungovernables,” is curated by Eungie Joo, Keith Haring Director and Curator of Education and Public Programs, with Ryan Inouye, Curatorial Assistant. “The Ungovernables” is an exhibition about the urgencies of a generation who came of age after the independence and revolutionary movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Through both materials and form, works included in “The Ungovernables” explore impermanence and an engagement with the present and future. Many of the works are provisional, site-specific, and performative reflecting an attitude of possibility and resourcefulness. The exhibition will be on view throughout the entire Museum until April 22, 2012.
