the 2012 new museum triennial:
features thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives—totaling over fifty participants—born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the us.

the exhibition title, “the ungovernables,” takes its inspiration from the concept of “ungovernability” and its transformation from a pejorative term used to describe unruly “natives” to a strategy of civil disobedience and self-determination. “the ungovernables” is meant to suggest both anarchic and organized resistance and a dark humor about the limitations and potentials of this generation.

“the ungovernables” is an exhibition about the urgencies of a generation who came of age after the independence and revolutionary movements of the 1960s and 1970s. through both materials and form, works included in “the ungovernables” explore impermanence and an engagement with the present and future. many of the works are provisional, site-specific, and performative reflecting an attitude of possibility and resourcefulness.

about the new museum triennial:
the generational triennial is a signature initiative of the new museum. it 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 in 2009, “the generational: younger than jesus,” featured fifty artists, from twenty-five countries, born after 1976.

schedule: 2012 triennial programs and works occurring outside of gallery spaces
