The New Museum will present the first large-scale, American museum exhibition of the artist Klara Liden, featuring a selection of works in the Museum's second floor gallery. In her practice, Liden regularly mines the anxieties of urban space to create ingenious and psychologically charged installations. She scavenges the streets of cities around the world for discarded materials, which she uses to build sculptural hideaways, scaled to her own body, in unexpected places. For her show at the New Museum, Liden will create a progression of spaces that culminate in a site-specific work intervening in the museum's architecture and creating a place physically and psychologically apart. This exhibition will also feature a number of Liden's videos realized over the past decade.
