Art: Group Show

The Ungovernables


Feb 15, 2012 – Apr 22, 2012

Daily (11am–6pm)



New Museum (Venue Partner)

235 Bowery



$12 - $16


“With the Occupy Wall Street movement and revolutionary uprisings world-wide, it's only appropriate that the New Museum dedicates its space to work that channels "civil disobedience and self-determination" and both "anarchic and organized resistance." Do not mistake this for a protest art exhibit: The work in this group show fights the power with conceptual complexity. Danh Võ's WE THE PEOPLE reconstructs the "skin" of the Statue of Liberty. Adrián Villar Rojas's cracked clay sculptures represent failure of meaning itself and explores how those broken parts are re-purposed. There are over 50 young artists from all around the world participating, all born in the mid '70s to mid '80s.”
