Join the AFA for a private tour of Songs for Sabotage, the Fourth New Museum Triennial. The tour will be led by Gary Carrion-Murayari co-curator of the Triennial and Kraus Family Curator at the New Museum.
Songs for Sabotage presents works by 26 artists, artist groups, and collectives from 19 countries, the majority of whom are exhibiting in the United States for the first time. The exhibition questions how individuals and collectives around the world might effectively address how culture connects to the forces that structure our society. Together, the selected artists engage with new and traditional media to reveal the built systems that construct our reality, images, and truths. Their works range widely in medium and form, including painted allegories for the administration of power, sculptural proposals to renew (and destroy) monuments, and cinematic works that engage the modes of propaganda that influence us more and more each day.
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.
