New Museum is putting on its third Triennial exhibition, titled Surround Audience and running at the NYC space from February 25 to May 24.
The international exhibition specialising in early-career artists (and the only recurring one of its kind) is organised this year by New Museum curator Lauren Cornell and artist Ryan Trecartin, featured in the inaugural 2009 Triennial. The two art figures have worked together for nearing a decade and the Triennial’s title is, for Cornell, inspired by the Trecartin’s own work which “vividly manifests a world in which the effects of technology and late capitalism have been absorbed into our bodies and altered our vision of the world”.
Among the 51 participants coming from over 25 different countries are many whose work has been specifically commissioned for the show, including Juliana Huxtable, Geumhyung Jeong, and Eduardo Navarro, who participated in research and production residencies associated with New Museum, as well as works by Eva Kotátková, Shadi Habib Allah, and Aleksandra Domanović.
