New Museum, New York : Younger than Jesus - fifty contemporary artists from twenty-five countries

The New Museum presents fifty artists from twenty-five countries in the first edition of “The Generational” of a three part exhibition. The first edition “The Generational: Younger Than Jesus” shows multidisciplinary work being produced by a new generation of artists born after 1976. The exhibition concept was inspired by the fact, that some of the most influential and enduring gestures in art and history have been made by young people in the early stages of their lives.

The New Museum on Bowery Street was filled with approximately 145 works by artists all of whom are under the age of 33. The exhibition offers a wide spectrum, encompassing painting, drawing, photography, film, animation, performance, installation, dance, Internet-based works, and video games.

In an open curatorial model, artists were selected through an international network of correspondents and an information-sharing group of over 150 curators, writers, teachers, artists, critics, and bloggers worldwide, who were asked to recommend artists for the exhibition.

Biographical information and images from the over 500 nominated artists will be included in the publication Younger Than Jesus: The Artist Directory, co-published by the New Museum and Phaidon.

In comparison, the exhibition catalogue, co-published by the New Museum and Steidl, includes reproductions of the work of the fifty artists chosen for the exhibition, as well as essays by the curators, and an anthology of articles by a diverse group of writers Including philosophers, sociologists, journalists, activists, and marketing and technology experts.

GoSee is pleased to present an introductory overview of these new contemporary masters.
