Greater New York 2005
Edited by Klaus Biesenbach.
Greater New York 2005, jointly organized by P.S.1 and The Museum of Modern Art, New York went on view March 13, 2005, showcasing 150 artists who have emerged since 2000. Their work explores this specific time period, during which New York City has changed dramatically; shows vitality, energy, and exciting promise; and anticipates new artistic directions. The exhibition includes artists from New York's five boroughs, as well as nearby towns in New Jersey, and builds from the spirit of its first incarnation, Greater New York, which opened at P.S.1 in 2000, shortly after the two institutions became affiliated. This accompanying catalogue documents trends, process, and media explored by the artists in the exhibition. Each artist featured in the exhibition receives a two-page spread that includes images, text, and biographical information. Among the 160 participating artists included are Dana Schutz, Taylor McKinens, Jules de Balincourt, Jen DeNike, Steve Mumford, Peter Rostovsky, Saya Woolfalk, Wangechi Mutu, Wade Guyton, Atlas Group/Walid Raad, Christian Jankowski and many more.
