MoMA PS1 Reveals Artist List for 2021 Greater New York Show

Alex Greenberger, ArtNews, July 28, 2021

Tammy Nguyen included in MoMA PS1's artist list for its 2021 Greater New York Show.


After delaying its recurring Greater New York show a year because of the pandemic, MoMA PS1 has revealed the artist list for the touted exhibition’s forthcoming fifth edition, which is now due to open on October 7. It is set to include 47 participants and place a focus on artistic networks in New York.


Greater New York is one of the most important recurring institutional exhibitions held in the city, alongside the New Museum Triennial (which will also open in October) and the Whitney Biennial. Typically held once every five years, Greater New York focuses artists based in the New York area.


To oversee this year’s edition, PS1 enlisted Ruba Katrib, a curator at the Long Island City museum. She will curate the exhibition alongside independent curator Serubiri Moses, who was on the team behind the 2018 Berlin Biennale. They worked in collaboration with PS1 director Kate Fowle and Inés Katzenstein, curator of Latin American art and director of the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Research Institute for the Study of Art from Latin America at the Museum of Modern Art.


This edition of Greater New York had been in the works well before the pandemic began. But, as with other biennial-style shows, the exhibition was shaped by Covid as well.
