The  New Museum Triennial, which will open on February 25, 2015, is poised to become one of the hottest tickets in the New York art scene next year. Entitled “Surround Audience” and curated by the New Museum’s curator Lauren Cornell and the artist Ryan Trecartin, the triennial promises a panorama of emerging artistic trends and practitioners, gathering 51 artists and collectives from 25 countries.

The list of participating artists was released yesterday, and it includes “hot young things” such as Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Sophia Al-Maria, Ed Atkins, Antoine Catala, DIS, Aleksandra Domanović, Eloise Hawser, K-HOLE, Josh Kline, Eva Kotátková, Oliver Laric, and Daniel Steegmann Mangrané—all of them artists that explore the psychological (and sometimes biological) ramifications of the technological sublime by means of digital animation, video, installation, sculpture, sound, branding, and publishing.

Many of the works that will be featured in the triennial have been specifically commissioned. In order to facilitate these commissions, the New Museum has hosted a cluster of research and production residences in the two years leading up to the exhibition.

According to Cornell, “Surround Audience” is inspired partly by the maverick oeuvre of its co-curator, Ryan Trecartin, which she says “vividly manifests a world in which the effects of technology and late capitalism have been absorbed into our bodies and altered our vision of the world.”
