‘Greater New York,’ MoMA PS1’s Closely Watched Survey, Returns to Excavate New York’s Past and Reckon With Its Surreal Present
What began as a survey of New York's present feels more intergenerational and international than ever.
The fifth edition of “Greater New York,” the recurring exhibition organized by MoMA PS1, is back. The trend-setting show is always highly anticipated, but may be even more so this time around because it was delayed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It includes 47 artists and collectives spread across three floors of PS1. The selection feels more intergenerational than ever, which makes for an exciting mix. Works that suggest historical perspectives on life in New York appear seamlessly alongside younger artists’ attempts to capture the momentous present.
Of the living artists in the show, the oldest is Bettina Grossman, born 1927. The youngest is Kristi Cavataro, born 1992.
