“Unmonumental: The Object in the 21st Century" is the first exhibition in the "Unmonumental" cycle, and explores the reinvention of sculptural assemblage. Using found, fragmented, and discarded materials, the works of the artists on view make a case for modesty, informality, and improvisation.

"Unmonumental: The Object in the 21st Century" is organized by the New Museum’s curatorial team of Richard Flood, Chief Curator; Laura Hoptman, Kraus Family Senior Curator; and Massimiliano Gioni, Director of Special Exhibitions

“Unmonumental: The Object in the 21st Century” is accompanied by a 264-page catalogue co-published by the New Museum and Phaidon. It includes essays by Richard Flood, Massimiliano Gioni, Laura Hoptman, and Trevor Smith, an independent curator, as well as illustrated sections on each of the thirty artists in the exhibition. The book also includes a chronology of unmonumental moments in the 21st century, organized by Benjamin Godsill, New Museum Curatorial Associate, and artists’ biographies by Sara Reisman, Program Director at the International Studio and Curatorial Program. The volume also includes a glossary of sculptural terms by Eva Diaz, former Joanne Leonhard Cassullo Curatorial Fellow.
Sharon Hayes
I march in the parade of liberty, but as long as I love you I'm not free

Generously supported by The Greenwall Foundation

New York-based artist Sharon Hayes works in performance, video, and installation, creating situations that expose dramatic frictions between collective activities and personal actions. With interventions that are inspired by the language of politics and the dramaturgy of theater, Hayes has staged protests, delivered speeches, and organized demonstrations in which crowds and individuals are invited to rethink their roles in the construction of public opinion. Hayes will create a site-specific performance piece for the New Museum, which will have both a live component and a recorded element that will be broadcast in an unusual interstitial space located between galleries. Continuing the artist’s interrogation of the infinitesimal distance that separates the public from the private, this new work will be a reflection on the difference between speaking and listening—a kind of confession combining the idiom of politics, the transmission of secrets, and the language of love.

Jeffery Inaba
Donor Hall

Jeffery Inaba uses a radical approach to research and design to make opaque information come alive. Inaba has created Donor Hall for the New Museum’s lower-level hallway, a bold, immersive graphic environment that identifies and quantifies public and private philanthropy around the world. The presentation is based on research on dozens of organizations—from sports, media, politics, education, religion, finance, paramilitary, and non-governmental organizations—and tracks the amounts of money various organizations donate to culture.

INABA and C-Lab have culled publicly available information about contributions to arts and culture around the world from the past three years, drawn from sources such as tax filings, corporate annual reports, newspapers, and research papers, indicating the contours of global generosity. Donor Hall covers the walls along the path leading to the Museum’s theater. The graphics convey information via traditional pie charts, in addition to images of actual pies, as well as pie-shaped foodstuffs, including hamburgers, sushi rolls, cheese wheels, and pizza. Superimposed on the charts are international pictograph-style depictions of animals associated with prosperity. Also imbedded in the imagery is hypertext drawn from classical American literature. By organizing allusive, disparate, and incongruous bits of data into legible interfaces, Inaba makes a world driven by such data and sustenance more open to understanding and change.



YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES (YHCHI) is a two-artist collective based in Seoul, South Korea. Using Flash animation techniques, they create fast-moving, text-based artworks that are synchronized with original scores. Using a seemingly simple format—texts on monochromatic backgrounds—YHCHI weaves complex and evocative narratives. Invoking the genre of film noir, and the hard-boiled literary styles of Raymond Chandler and Phillip K. Dick, YHCHI’s imaginative, witty and often politically pointed narratives offer layered and compelling stories in which identities are assumed and discarded, and ideologies of all persuasions are held up and questioned.

For BLACK ON WHITE, GRAY ASCENDING, their project for the New Museum, the artists have expanded their usual single-channel format to create an unprecedented seven-channel installation that tells a chilling story of abduction and assassination from seven separate points of view, set to an eerily laid-back bossa nova score. The installation is at once as nostalgic as a 1960s suspense film and as current as the daily headlines.

BLACK ON WHITE, GRAY ASCENDING is organized by Laura Hoptman, Kraus Family Senior Curator, New Museum, and Lauren Cornell, Director, Rhizome.
