New Museum Debuts Triennial: Surround Audience Exhibition

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

The New Museum has brought back its Triennial exhibition for the third time. The exhibition, held previously in 2009 and 2012 with great success, is the only recurring international exhibition in New York City devoted to early career artists from around the world.

This year’s Triennial, titled “Surround Audience,” explores the effects of an increasingly connected world both on our sense of self and identity as well as on art’s form and larger social role. The building-wide exhibition features 150 artists from 25 different countries and performing and presenting past and commissioned works in a variety of mediums including sound, dance, comedy, poetry, installation, sculpture, painting, video, one online talk show, and an ad campaign.

The museum held the opening reception for the exhibition on Tuesday February 24th, and invited an exclusive group of artists, collectors and admirers to the gallery and to the after party afterwards at the Standard penthouse lounge. Among the guests at the opening were Ryan Trecartin, Lauren Cornell, Karen Wong, Damien Whitmore, Samantha Gilbert, Edward Tolman, Elin Bergithe Rognlie, Lisa Phillips, Alina Cho, Liza Magic Laser, Diana Picasso, Dustin Yellin, Sarah O’Keefe, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Mykki Blanco, Kyp Malone, Cecilia Alemani, Massimiliano Gioni, Lonti Ebers, JK Brown, Jeffrey Deitch, Tamia Anaya, Karen Archey, Nick Scholl, Nick DeMarco, Andrea Glimcher, Oto Gillen, Talia Chetrit, David Velasco, Michael Wang and Alex Verando.
