New Museum Presents Exhibition Featuring Video, Installation, Sculpture, Photography, the Internet, and Sound

The New Museum will present “Free,” an exhibition including twenty-three artists working across mediums—including video, installation, sculpture, photography, the internet, and sound—that reflects artistic strategies that have emerged in a radically democratized cultural terrain redefined by the impact of the web. Open 10/20/10 – 1/23/11.

“Free” will propose an expansive conversation around how the internet has affected our landscape of information and notion of public space. The philosophy of free culture, and its advocacy for open sharing, informs the exhibition, but is not its subject. Instead, the title and featured works present a complex picture of the new freedoms and constraints that underlie our expanded cultural space.

“Free” is curated by Lauren Cornell, Executive Director of Rhizome and New Museum Adjunct Curator. Artists featured in “Free” are Liz Deschenes (born 1966 in Boston, lives in New York), Aleksandra Domanovic (born 1981 in Novi Sad, Serbia, lives in Berlin), Lizzie Fitch (born 1981 in Bloomington, Indiana, lives in Philadelphia), Martijn Hendriks (born 1973 in Eindhoven, Netherlands, lives in Amsterdam), Joel Holmberg (born 1982 in Bethesda, Maryland, lives in New York), David Horvitz (born 1982 in Los Angeles, lives in New York), Lars Laumann (born 1975 in Brønnøysund, lives in Berlin), Andrea Longacre-White (born 1980 in Philadelphia, lives in Los Angeles), Kristin Lucas (born 1968 in Davenport, Iowa, lives in Beacon, New York), Jill Magid (born 1973 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, lives in New York), Hanne Mugaas (born 1980 in Stavanger, Norway, lives in New York), Takeshi Murata (born 1974 in Chicago, lives in Saugerties, New York), Rashaad Newsome (born 1979 in New Orleans, lives in New York), Lisa Oppenheim (born 1975 in New York, lives in New York), Trevor Paglen (born 1974 in Washington D.C., lives in Oakland and New York), Seth Price (born 1973 in East Jerusalem, lives in New York), Jon Rafman (born 1981 in Montreal, lives in Montreal), Clunie Reid (born 1971 in Pembury, United Kingdom, lives in London), Amanda Ross-Ho (born 1975 in Chicago, lives in Los Angeles), Alexandre Singh (born 1980 in Bordeaux, France, lives in New York), Ryan Trecartin (born 1981 in Webster, Texas, lives in Philadelphia) & David Karp (born 1986 in New York, lives in New York), and Harm Van Den Dorpel (born 1981 in Zaandam, Netherlands, lives in Amsterdam).
