Urban Theater: New York Art in the 1980s

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

September 21 - January 4, 2015

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. This is going to be fascinating, and there's a ton of programming around this show too--although the Modern is mysteriously not screening the seminal documentary Downtown 81, they've nonetheless got several of the artists involved coming in for Tuesday night lectures during the fall. Not To Be Missed.
