As part of the 2012 New Museum Triennial, over twenty participating artists join curator Eungie Joo in a conversation about their practices. This informal conversation revolves around the pressing questions Triennial artists want to pose to each other in an effort to open an ongoing conversation within this generation of remarkable practitioners.
“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 exhibition 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. The 2012 New Museum Triennial features thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US.
