new york: the ungovernables

it's tough to pick a show in new york city when there's heaps and heaps to choose from. one of the must-sees at the moment is the ungovernables, new museum's 2012 triennial showcase. the show focuses on the urgencies of a generation who came of age right after the independence and revolutionary movements of the 1960s and 1970s. through materials and form, the works on display explore impermanence and an engagement with the present and future. these works represent 34 artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives from across the planet - totaling over 50 participants - born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the united states. participating artists include adrián villar rojas, public movement, hu xiaoyuan, slavs and tatars and mounira al solh [on through apr 22]. location: 235 bowery [nolita].
