“NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star” at New Museum of Contemporary Art is a chance to have a flash into memory of a turning point in cultural and art history. Telling a part of the story of 1993, the exhibition includes well-known and lesser known art works that indicate a pivotal moment in the culture and history of the New York art scene. With subject matter such as the AIDS epidemic, punk rock, women’s rights and gun control, the exhibition provides insight into the integration between mainstream and underground culture that would shape the next decades in the art and culture scene. Many of the artists rose to fame during 1993, with names such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Cindy Sherman, Lorna Simpson, Kiki Smith, Glenn Ligon, Gary Simmons, Nari Ward and David Hammons becoming fixtures in the mainstream art world.
