Manolis D.Lemos: Dusk and dawn look just the same (riot tourism) (2017)

KERNEL: As you said, things resist and things are resistant (2018)

Last day to see SONGS FOR SABOTAGE and the works of Manolis D. Lemos and KERNEL, Petros Moris and Pegy Zali as KERNEL (ARTWORKS Fellows 2018) at the New Museum in New York.

The New Museum Triennial is the only recurring international exhibition in New York City devoted to emerging artists from around the world, providing an important platform for a new generation of artists who are shaping the current discourse of contemporary art and the future of culture. The first edition was initiated in 2009. Songs for Sabotage, the fourth New Museum Triennial, questions how individuals and collectives around the world might effectively address the connection of images and culture to the forces that structure our society.

Together, the artists in 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, and an interference in political and social structures, and brings together works across mediums by approximately thirty artists from nineteen countries, the majority of whom are exhibiting in the United States for the first time.

Songs for Sabotage is curated by Gary Carrion-Murayari, Kraus Family Curator at the New Museum, and Alex Gartenfeld, founding Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, with Francesca Altamura, Curatorial Assistant. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue copublished by the New Museum and Phaidon Press Limited.

On view: 13.02.2018 – 27.05.2018
