A who's who of the Reganomics decade, including Laurie Anderson, Basquiat, Bleckner, Francesco Clemente, Eric Fischl, Nan Goldin, JPeter Halley, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, Koons, Kruger, Sherrie Levine, Mapplethorpe, Allan McCollum, Richard Prince, David Salle, Kenny Scharf, Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, Warhol, Christopher Wool and others.
