The official catalogue for the 2021 New Museum Triennial, a global survey of today’s up-and-coming artists

The New Museum’s Triennial, curated by Jamilla James and Margot Norton, is a signature survey of emerging artists from around the world. In this moment of profound change, where structures once thought to be stable have been revealed to be precarious, the 2021 Triennial showcases 40 artists and collectives reimagining traditional models, materials, and techniques beyond established institutional paradigms. Their works explore states of transformation, calling attention to the malleability of structures and the fluid and adaptable potential of both technological and organic media.
