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.
Staple Masterpiece by Wilmer Wilson IV
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:
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.
Abstract Painting by Chemu Ng’ok
Below is a work by South African artist, Chemu Ng’ok. Chemu is represented by one of my favorite galleries - SMAC from Capetown.
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.
Graphic Paintings from Tomm El-Saieh
He's had some great press in the following media outlets:
Piercing Surrealism by Janiva Ellis
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!
