MoMA PS1 announced the artist list for the fourth edition of “Greater New York,” a show devoted to artists living and working in New York City. The exhibition opens October 11, 2015 in the New York City art museum and continues through March 7, 2016. For the first time, the exhibition brings together emerging with established artists. “Greater New York” occupies MoMA PS1’s entire building and features over 400 art works by 157 artists, including film and performance.
The survey was curated by Peter Eleey, MoMA PS1 Curator and Associate Director of Exhibitions and Programs, with art historian Douglas Crimp and Thomas J. Lax, MoMA associate curator of media and performance; and Mia Locks, assistant curator at MoMA PS1.
Traditionally, the "Greater New York" exhibition has been devoted to showcasing emerging artists living in the New York metropolitan area. Held every five years, this year’s edition was changed in reaction to changes in the art world coupled with a rising nostalgia for the NYC art community and experimentation of the ‘70s and ‘80s—a new longing not present when the show originated in 2000, explained the museum.
"With the rise of a robust commercial art market and the proliferation of art fairs, opportunities for younger artists in the city have grown alongside a burgeoning interest in artists who may have been overlooked in the art histories of their time," stated PS1 in its exhibition announcement.
"Concurrently, the city itself is being reshaped by a voracious real estate market that poses particular challenges to local artists…Against this backdrop, Greater New York departs from the show’s traditional focus on youth, instead examining points of connection and tension between our desire for the new and nostalgia for that which it displaces."
If you’re looking for a Hamptons connection, you will find one. Mel Bochner, who lives in New York City with a part time residence in the Hamptons, was selected. Kiki Smith, who was recently honored by LongHouse Reserve and exhibited her work there this summer, is also among the artists selected.
