MoMA PS1 Returns to Announce the 2021 Greater New York Artist List


After a year on hiatus due to the pandemic, MoMA PS1 has released the list of artists that will exhibit at the crowd-favorite, “Greater New York” exhibition. The fifth edition of the event will now commence on October 7 and highlight 47 artists (see below) that are specific to the New York artistic community.

Although this particular showing was already forming before the pandemic started, the pool of work undeniably took shape as the pandemic ensued. Speaking on the matter, PS1 director Kate Fowle, stated in an interview, “This is an exhibition that’s not necessarily such a direct response to what’s happened, but has grown out of it.”

The cast of artists is a promising one, a mixture of old and new, that will surely uphold PS1’s reputation as one of New York’s premier art events. Artists such as Sean-Kierre Lyons, whose illustrations aim to amend the characters that mold Black American identity, with reference to visual lexicon of the Antebellum period of the American South, from the years of 1812 to 1815. Another one to look out for is photographer Hiram Maristany, who brilliantly documented Spanish Harlem during the 1960s.

The MoMA PS1 Greater New York exhibition will commence on October 7 and is certainly one you don’t want to miss.

On the opposite coast, the Felix Art Fair will also focus its showing on an all-local exhibitor list.
