New Museum Triennial

New York

13 Feb - 27 May 2018

Songs for Sabotage

The New Museum Triennial is the only recurring international exhibition in New York City devoted to providing a platform for a new generation of artists who are shaping the current discourse of contemporary art and the future of culture. Together, the artists in the triennial’s fourth edition, ‘Songs for Sabotage’, propose a kind of propaganda, engaging with new and traditional media in order to reveal the built systems that construct our reality, images, and truths. The exhibition amounts to a call for action, an active engagement in political and social structures, and will bring together works across mediums by approximately 30 artists from nineteen countries, the majority of whom are exhibiting in the US for the first time. This year’s triennial explores interventions into cities, infrastructures, and the networks of everyday life, proposing objects that might create common experience. Find out more about the New Museum Triennial from their website.
