Your History is Not Our History: New York in the 1980s 

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through May 1 2010

Though no doubt motivated in part by our unending romanticizing of all things “Downtown New York in the 80s”, there’s also a very explicit art historical misperception at the center of this group show: namely, that the period was shaped by the divergent pursuits of conservative painters and progressive photographers and text artists. Here, works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Carroll Dunham and Jeff Koons in the former medium, and Barbara Kruger and Laurie Simmons in the latter, among others, demonstrate the eclectic materials and forms used by the era’s avant-garde.
