Greater New York, the third iteration of the quintennial exhibition organized by MoMA PS1 and The Museum of Modern Art, includes 68 artists and collectives living and working in the metropolitan New York area. The exhibition, which opens on May 23, will present work made within the past five years, and also feature a number of artists’ residencies in the space for the duration of the show. According to the press release, they will be shooting photographs and video, rehearsing and realizing performances, and “stretching the notions of sculpture, painting, photography, film, and video-making.” Curated by Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1 and Connie Butler, Chief Curator at Large at The Museum of Modern Art, the roster includes plenty of artists whose work incorporates performance, installation, photography and video, but only
nine thirteen painters: Tauba Auerbach, Kerstin Brätsch, Leidy Churchman, Caleb Considine, Franklin Evans, Alex Hubbard, Alisha Kerlin, Tala Madani, Nick Mauss, Dave Miko, Adam Pendleton, Zak Prekop, Amy Yao
How were the artists selected? Through studio visits, review of recommendations, mailed submissions, and Studio Visit, a new MoMA PS1 initiative in which artists present their artwork and studios online. Over 750 Studio Visit submissions were reviewed by the curatorial team.
