Jesus died at the age of 33. This publication, which accompanies the first New Museum triennial, Younger Than Jesus, focuses on artists born after 1975. Departing from popular assertions about the group, which the media has dubbed the "Millennials," or "Generation Y," this reader presents the work of nearly 50 international artists, based on the conviction that radical gestures have often been carried out by young artists. It illuminates both the shared practices and the dramatic differences found within this age group. Along with a generous selection of color reproductions of the artists' work, this volume includes essays by exhibition curators Lauren Cornell, Massimiliano Gioni and Laura Hoptman, along with an anthology of reprinted texts by a diverse group of writers--including philosophers, sociologists and technology experts--which contextualize the work within the significant events of the past 30 years--for example, globalization and the increased networking of culture and daily life.

Laura Hoptman is Curator of Contemporary Art at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh and sole curator of the 2004 Carnegie International. While Assistant Curator in the Department of Drawings at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Hoptman curated the critically praised show Drawing Now: Eight Propositions. She has curated exhibitions and projects on Yayoi Kusama, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Elizabeth Peyton, John Currin, Luc Tuymans, and others. pp. 507 illusts #1019
