    NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star


    “do it”
    Hans Ulrich Obrist and Massimiliano Gioni in conversation,
    moderated by Kate Fowle


    In 1993, Hans Ulrich Obrist started “do it,” an exhibition in progress that is now twenty years old.

    This conversation will explore the project’s beginnings, its iterations, and its repercussions in the context of the cultural and political developments of the early ’90s.

    Massimiliano Gioni is Associate Director and Director of Exhibitions at the New Museum. Kate Fowle is the Executive Director of Independent Curators International (ICI).



    NYC 1993:
    Experimental Jet Set,
    Trash and No Star











    Centering on the year 1993, the exhibition is conceived as a time capsule, an experiment in collective memory that attempts to capture a specific moment at the intersection of art, pop culture, and politics.

    The social and economic landscape of the early ’90s was a cultural turning point both nationally and globally.

    Conflict in Europe, attempts at peace in the Middle East, the AIDS crisis, national debates on health care, gun control, and gay rights, and caustic partisan politics served as both the background and source material for a number of younger artists who first came to prominence in 1993.

    At the same time, an increasingly active international network of artists, curators, and dealers contributed to a burgeoning global art world, amplified by the nascent tools of digital information. Twenty years later, it is time to reconsider the events, debates, and histories that prompted dramatic changes in art and culture.

    The exhibition will span all five gallery floors of the New Museum and will also feature an installation of Nari Ward’s iconic work Amazing Grace in the Museum’s Studio 231 space . The project was originally realized in 1993 in an abandoned fire station in Harlem.

    Love learning about new art by talking with others. The exhibits at the New often leave me cold....but mean so much more when talked about! Looking forward to this.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
