The 51-artist list showed up on on Gallerist NY early this afternoon (followed by a partial confirmation via the Times), and it includes many of the usual suspects, has one artist (Wu Tsang) in common with the New Museum’s upcoming triennial and a conspicuous wealth of filmmakers that includes Werner Herzog, Charles Atlas, Kelly Reichardt and Frederick Wiseman.
