Some monuments are big, some old, some can inspire, and some commemorate while others celebrate. A monument can be anything from the Greek Parthenon to Dutch windmills to the Brooklyn Bridge and even a statue of Mickey Mouse. Join the New Museum in creating our own monuments and explore ideas of monumentality as seen in the New Museum Triennial “The Ungovernables,” paying special attention to Adrián Villar Rojas’s decomposing structures, Danh Võ’s reconstruction of the Statue of Liberty, and Julia Dault’s performative abstractions.
