The Museum of Modern Art in New York has revealed the artist list for the 2018 edition of “New Photography,” the museum’s survey of emerging artists working in photo-based mediums. (The last edition of “New Photography” was in 2015.) The 2018 edition of “New Photography” opens on March 18, 2018.

Seventeen artists will be included in the survey, which will be titled “Being.” Curated by MoMA assistant curator Lucy Gallun, the show will include work that touches on, among other things, masks and avatars, the history of portraiture, and the thin boundary between public and private. All of the artists included will be showing work primarily made since 2016.
