MoMA and P.S.1 Name Artists for Next Month’s 2010 Greater New York Survey of NYC Artists

2005 Great New York at PS1

In a press release sent out yesterday, MoMA and P.S.1 announced the names of the 68 artists and collectives whose new and recent works will appear in this year’s edition of their quintennial Greater New York show at P.S.1 (May 23-October 18), which is sort of like the Modern’s response to the Whitney Biennial, except focused on local artists—although you’ll notice quite a bit of overlap with this year’s NYC-centric Biennial.

The full list is after the jump, but some names that immediately stand out are: abstract texture painter Tauba Auerbach, irreverent anti-art market collective The Bruce High Quality Foundation, parodic performance artists the Delusional Downtown Divas, video and video game artist Brody Condon, tape installation artist Franklin Evans, gender-performing video artist Kalup Linzy, choreographers and video artists robbinschilds and appropriation artist Hank Willis Thomas. The list technically isn’t finalized, but…

Along with Greater New York, P.S.1 will present a gallery-sized bibliography of sorts chronicling significant cultural events and exhibitions in New York over the last half-decade, kind of like the New Museum had for The Generational; a group of NYC-based guest curators will present a series of short exhibitions; Thomas Beard and Ed Halter from Light Industry will curate a video series in the basement; and some of these artists (presumably those whose work involves performance) will be invited to do a residency at P.S.1 during the show. But enough about all that, here are the artists:
