Greater New York, MoMA PS1’s signature survey of artists living and working in the New York City area, returns for its fifth edition from October 7, 2021 to April 18, 2022. Delayed one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this iteration offers an intimate portrayal of New York by creating proximity between key—yet often under-examined—histories of art-making and emerging practices. Featuring the work of 47 artists and collectives, Greater New York offers new insights and opens up geographic and historical boundaries by pinpointing both specific and expanded narratives of the local in a city that provokes a multitude of perspectives. Bridging strategies of the documentary and the archive on the one hand, and surrealism and fabulation on the other, the exhibition considers the ways that artists work to record social and personal experiences around belonging and estrangement. Drawing connections across the interdisciplinary practices of international and intergenerational artists, Greater New York examines the many ways that affinities are formed in relation to place and through time. The full artist list is available in the press release linked below.

During the 1930s and 1940s, abstraction began to solidify as an exciting, fresh form of modern artmaking in the United States, and a small assortment of American artists dedicated themselves to it. Labyrinth of Forms, a title drawn from an Alice Trumbull Mason work in this exhibition, alludes to the sense of discovery that drove these artists’ attempts to establish a visual form that reflected the advances of the twentieth century. Many of these abstractionists were women, and they played important roles in propelling the formal, technical, and conceptual evolution of abstract art in this country. While a few of these artists, like Lee Krasner and Louise Nevelson, have been duly recognized, most remain overlooked in spite of their prominence within this burgeoning movement. With thirty-five works by twenty-six artists drawn almost entirely from the Whitney’s permanent collection, Labyrinth of Forms seeks to highlight the achievements of these artists and explores the ways in which works on paper, in particular, were important sites for experimentation and innovation.

Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950–2019

Until Feb 2022


foregrounds how visual artists have explored the materials, methods, and strategies of craft, beginning with works made after World War II when many artists embraced fiber arts and ceramics to challenge the dominance of traditional painting and sculpture. Over the next seven decades, artists have continued to explore techniques such as weaving, sewing, or pottery, and experimented with textiles, thread, clay, and beads, among other mediums. These works speak to artists’ interests in domesticity, hobbyist materials, the decorative, vernacular American traditions, “women’s work,” and feminist and queer aesthetics. By employing marginalized modes of artistic production, they challenge the power structures that determine artistic value.

Drawn primarily from the Whitney’s collection, the exhibition will encompass over eighty works by more than sixty artists, including Ruth Asawa, Eva Hesse, Mike Kelley, Liza Lou, Howardena Pindell, Robert Rauschenberg, Elaine Reichek, and Lenore Tawney, as well as featuring new acquisitions by Shan Goshorn, Kahlil Robert Irving, Simone Leigh, Jordan Nassar, and Erin Jane Nelson.
