We stopped by the New Museum’s preview of their fascinating 2012 Triennial, The Ungovernables, yesterday. In her introductory remarks, Curator Eungie Joo talked about the task of putting together a show with over 50 different artists from around the world. The exhibit, which opens today, focuses on contemporary artists who were all born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US.
