Preview: NYC 1993 Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star at the New Museum
The New Museum is taking us back in time 20 years to NYC during 1993 in their new exhibit scheduled to open February 13, 2013, “NYC 1993” The exhibit draws its subtitle from the rock band Sonic Youth’s album recorded in 1993.
The social and economic landscape of the early 90’s was a cultural turning point which influenced a number of young artists who first came to prominence in 1993. The exhibit will include a number of historical reconstructions of important installations and exhibits from the year, but will also revisit other works to reinterpret from the vantage point of today; highlighting the ways in which in which certain events and emotions repeat in the present. The works are set to sketch out the complex intersection between art and the world at large that defined the 90s.
All five gallery floors of the New Museum will house this exhibit. The museums Studio 231 space will also house an installation of Nari Ward’s Amazing Grace from January 16-April 21, 2013.
