Parsons’ Dault Selected for New Museum Triennial


Julia Dault, an alumnus (MFA Fine Art ’08) and faculty member at the School of Art and Design History and Theory at Parsons The New School for Design, has been selected to participate in the 2012 New Museum Triennial, which will feature thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s.

The theme for this second New Museum Triennial is The Ungovernables,, which takes its inspiration from the concept of ungovernability, and its transformation from a pejorative term used to describe unruly natives, to a strategy of civil disobedience and self-determination. The exhibition will be on view from February 15-April 22, 2012.

At Parsons, Dault teaches courses on the intersections of art and culture, including No Joke: Comedy as Commentary and Unsustainability & Consumerism. Her recent exhibitions include Everything Must Go, at Casey Kaplan Gallery, New York; Making Is Thinking, at Witte de With, Rotterdam (both 2011); and Substance Abuse, at Leo Koenig Projekte, New York (2010). She presented Total Picture Control,, a solo exhibition, at Blackston Gallery, New York (2010).
