The New Museum Releases Schedule of Exhibitions for Spring 2016The New Museum Releases Schedule of Exhibitions for Spring 2016
by BWW News Desk - Nov 12, 2015

“Anri Sala: Answer Me” February 3–April 10, 2016 Second, Third, and Fourth Floors In February 2016, the New Museum will present a major exhibition of the work of Anri Sala (b. 1974, Tirana, Albania), whose innovative and rigorous work has garnered critical acclaim. Highlighting Sala's poetic and conceptual approaches to music, sound, and architecture, the exhibition will feature elaborate multichannel audio and video installations that will unfold on three of the Museum's floors, composing an experience specific to the New Museum. The artist's video works often depict fragments of everyday life that double as portraits of society, and in his instal­lations, Sala exposes how communication can occur outside the limits of language as well as how sounds can affect our perception of time and space. In recent works, Sala has focused on forms of classical music, and the exhibition at the New Museum will include his striking two-film installation Ravel, Ravel, which debuted in his solo presentation for the French Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. Though Sala has exhibited internationally since the late 1990s, the exhibition at the New Museum will mark his first solo presentation at a New York museum. The exhibition is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director, Margot Norton, Associate Curator, and Natalie Bell, Assistant Curator. More (more...)
