The New Museum has revealed the list for its 2018 New Museum Triennial, which opens on February 13 and runs through May 27. Curated by New Museum curator Gary Carrion-Murayari and Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami deputy director and chief curator Alex Gartenfeld, the exhibition will be titled “Songs for Sabotage,” and will include more than 30 artists from 19 countries—a much smaller group than the last triennial, in 2015, which included 51 artists.

The exhibition, which is the triennial’s fourth edition, will loosely focus on the relationship between art objects and the societies artists hail from, with meditations on the circulation of images and the legacies of colonialism and systemic racism interspersed throughout. “The exhibition amounts to a call for action, an active engagement, and an interference in political and social structures urgently requiring them,” a press release reads.
