Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
This year marks the third edition of the New Museum of Contemporary Art’s Triennial, featuring the latest crop of artists under 35—some 51 artists and art collectives from over 25 countries—on the brink of blowing up. Each Triennial has had a title and a theme, and the 2015 Triennial is no exception. “Surround Audience” has a vaguely sinister ring, as if to suggest hostage-taking at a movie theater. But audience in this case means everyone, while surround signifies the cocooned environment of social media, streamed content and all the other manifestations of 24/7 digital culture. The show’s point: That we have met our captors and they are us. Artist Ryan Trecartin, who was featured in the very first Triennial (“Younger Than Jesus”) in 2009, makes the selections along with media curator Lauren Cornell.
