Asia Society’s Inaugural Triennial in New York will be showing over 40 artists from 19 countries

More than 40 artists from 19 countries will participate in the inaugural edition of the Asia Society Triennial taking place this year, between June 5th — August 9th. The event, titled We Do Not Dream Alone, will take place across several venues in New York.

“Asia Society’s purview across the region and the diaspora represents diverse cultures, religions, ethnicities, political ideologies, and identities,” says Michelle Yun, Asia Society Museum’s senior curator of contemporary art. “As we considered which artists to include in our first triennial, we initially cast a wide net. Ultimately, we focused our selection on artists whose practices actively and uniquely engage timely, yet universally accessible, issues relating to democracy, identity, gender, and sustainability.”
