press release

Wishing to provide a picture of the new generation of American artists, European curators Gunnar B. Kvaran, Daniel Birnbaum and Hans Ulrich Obrist have chosen young artists with a new vision for this exhibition. This art can be characterized as narrative and with a clear social and political consciousness. Yet one can also find a wide specter of themes and artistic ‘languages' in the exhibition, which, in addition to extensive multi-media installations, includes a video- and sculpture exhibition. The exhibition has been organized by the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo, Norway and is accompanied by an extensive catalogue.

The artists presented in the exhibition: Allora & Calzadilla - Edgar Arceneaux / Rodney McMillian - Devendra Banhart - Frank Benson - Jennifer Bornstein - Mike Bouchet - Matthew Brannon - Anthony Burdin - Paul Chan - Sean Dack - Trisha Donnelly - Jim Drain - Piero Golia - Hannah Greely - Taft Green - Guyton\Walker - Karl Haendel - Christian Holstad - Shane Huffman - Jiae Hwang - Matthew Day Jackson - Matt Johnson - Miranda July - Nate Lowman - Daria Martin - Matt McCormick - Ohad Meromi - Kori Newkirk - Seth Price - Adam Putnam - Cristina Lei Rodriguez - Matthew Ronay - Mika Rottenberg - Aïda Ruilova - Paul Sietsema - Josh Smith - Mika Tajima - TM Sisters - Jordan Wolfson - Mario Ybarra Jr. - Aaron Young
