12-02-2014 12:00:00 13-04-2014 12:00:00 America/New_York Paweł Althamer: The Neighbors The New Museum presents the first US museum exhibition of the work of Paweł Althamer (b. 1967). Since the early 1990s, Althamer has established a unique artistic practice featuring an expanded approach to sculptural representation and consistently experimental models of social collaboration. Draftsmen's Congress, originally presented at the 7th Berlin Biennial (2012), will anchor the Fourth Floor gallery. Over the course of the exhibition, the blank white gallery will be transformed through the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings by Museum visitors and invited community organizations. The exhibition will also feature a number of Althamer's iconic sculptures and performative videos realized alone or in cooperation with a number of community groups that he has worked with over the past two decades. The artist's most recent body of work, the Venetians, a haunting group of sculptures created for the 55th Venice Biennale, will be included. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with contributions by Boris Groys, NYU Global Distinguished Professor of Russian and Slavic Studies, Joanna Mytkowska, Director of the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, and artist Artur Zmijewski, in addition to an interview with the artist. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=150966 New Museum New Museum
