This show, though tiny, is comprised of incredibly compelling conceptual photographs by artists such as Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha, Adrian Piper, and Mel Bochner, to name only a few.

A Triennial is Born And It’s Younger Than Jesus

Alyssa Bianca-Pavley

04.16.09

Yes there is a new ‘-ennial’ out there.  A triennial – at the New Museum in New York’s (re)burgeoning bowery art scene. On inception it’s being called The Generational: Younger Than Jesus, because everyone in the show is under 33.  And we wonder if they are going to keep the same title ever year? ‘Younger than Jesus’ that is? I mean what if all the believers out there are right and Jesus happens to come back in the years in between? Guess the Priory of Sion is not in on this one.  Alyssa Bianca-Pavley, quite younger than Jesus herself, gives us the run down in brief.
