New Museum Lobby Gallery

For her first New York museum solo exhibition, Jade Guanaro Kuriki-Olivo, widely known as Puppies Puppies, transforms the New Museum’s Lobby Gallery into a mise-en-scène for her daily activities, with a portion of the space functioning as a duplicate of the artist’s actual bedroom. Using a fogging glass mechanism, Puppies Puppies will alternately obscure and reveal her activities in the gallery to visitors, foregrounding themes of visibility, representation, and cultural consumption. By allowing a spectacularized view into her daily existence, Kuriki-Olivo celebrates the nuanced layers of her own identity, eliding tokenization and reductive narratives of racial and trans identities.

Puppies Puppies (Jade Guanaro Kuriki-Olivo): Nothing New is curated by Vivian Crockett, Curator, with Ian Wallace, Curatorial Assistant.
