After serving for seven years as Executive Director of new media non-profit Rhizome, in 2012 Lauren Cornell was appointed “Curator, 2015 Triennial, Digital Projects and Museum as Hub” of the New Museum, New York. During her tenure at Rhizome – a New Museum affiliate – Cornell initiated programmes including the annual Seven on Seven
conference series, which bridges contemporary art and technology fields
by pairing technological innovators with visual artists and challenging
them to develop something over the course of a day. At the New Museum,
Cornell was part of the curatorial team for The Generational: Younger Than Jesus (2009) and curated exhibitions including Free
(2010), a group show that examined “how the internet has changed our
landscape of information and our notion of public space”. She is
currently preparing the 2015 Triennial, the institution’s signature
exhibition, which she will curate together with artist and filmmaker Ryan Trecartin.
