Melbourne-based artist Nicholas Mangan will join 50 artists in the 2015 New Museum Triennial Surround Audience in New York.

The Triennial is the only recurring museum exhibition in New York devoted to the presentation of the work of international early-career artists, with the museum committing to exploring the future of culture through the art of today. The upcoming Triennial will be co-curated by New Museum curator Lauren Cornell and artist Ryan Trecartin.

Mangan, who is represented by Sutton Gallery, will present works from his 2010 project Notes from a Cretaceous World. Originally shown as an installation at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the work incorporates both video documentary and sculptural elements. This project, which was also shown at the Adelaide Biennal 2010 as well as Sutton Gallery, reflects on the socio-political history of the island of Nauru.

More widely, his work can be seen to address a wide range of themes, including the ongoing impacts of colonialism, humanity's fraught relationship with the natural environment, contemporary consumptive cultures and the complex dynamics of the global political economy.

The exhibition will be on view from 25 February 2014 to 24 May 2015 at New Museum, New York.
