The Triennial

The Triennial at the New Museum is the 4th of it's kind. The first, beginning in 2009, then again in 2012 and 2015. In 2018 the 4th Triennial was comprised of 26 artists from all over the world.

Work by Julia Phllips

Staple Masterpiece by Wilmer Wilson IV

Above and below are works by Philadelphian artist, Wilmer Wilson IV, who's represented by CONNERSMITH. in D.C. His signature is this very detailed 'staple' artwork.

Odds Defying Works by Manuel Solano

My personal favorite of the night were works by the artist, Manuel Solano from Mexico City. Any work he produced after 2014 was done when he was BLIND. That's right, he can't even see and he creates paintings as beautiful as below.

He's had some really great write-ups by the following: 

Hyperallergic

The New York Times

Interview Magazine

He's represented by Peres Projects

Woven works by Zhenya Machneva

Russian artist, Zhenya Machneva showed two really interesting pieces (below). I'm starting to see a re-emergence in weaving being accepted as 'fine art' thanks to recent exhibitions from Erin M. Riley and more.

Zhenya was even mentioned in Garage's, '10 Artists to Watch in the New Museum Triennial' article.

Ready-Made from Violet Dennison

Below is a work by American artist, Violet Dennison. She has an affinity for the ready-made, especially the natural ready-made, like the sculpture she created from seagrass from the Florida Keys below. She's represented by Jan Kaps Gallery in Cologne.

Piercing Surrealism by Janiva Ellis

Not only was this California artist named 'young artist of 2018' by Cultured Magazine, but she's represented by 47 Canal in New York.

Since the Triennial doesn't happen annually it's hard to say when the next one will be, but I know it's not one to miss!
