In 2018, the New Museum in New York presents its fourth Triennial, the museum’s signature survey of emerging artists from around the world. Curated by Gary Carrion-Murayari and Alex Gartenfeld, this edition of the much-anticipated exhibition - and the fully illustrated catalogue that accompanies it - features work by 26 artists and collectives from 19 countries, exploring a range of artistic practices. Though distinct in their approaches, these artists are connected by their deep engagement with their local context and a critical examination - and embrace - of the sense of internationalism that defines our time.
