The third iteration of the quintennial exhibition organized by P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and The Museum of Modern Art, Greater New York 2010 showcases emerging artists who are living and working in the metropolitan New York area. Covering a full range of practices and media, and eagerly anticipated throughout the art community, the 2010 exhibition and catalogue present new works by more than 70 artists of diverse backgrounds, allowing each of them a significant area of space in P.S.1’s expansive galleries in which to show new work or work that has been made in the past five years. This year, Greater New York is organized by Klaus Biesenbach, P.S.1 Director and MoMA Chief Curator at Large; Connie Butler, MoMA Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawing; and Neville Wakefield, P.S.1 Senior Curatorial Advisor.

Description: Catalogue published to accompany the exhibition ‘Younger than Jesus’, the first edition of ‘The Generational’, a new signature triennial at the New Museum, New York from April to July 2009. Works of 50 artists born around 1980 from 25 countries are presented.

‘The only exhibition of its kind in the United States, “The Generational: Younger than Jesus” will offer a rich, intricate, multidisciplinary exploration of the work being produced by a new generation of artists born after 1976. Known to demographers, marketers, sociologists, and pundits variously as the Millennials, Generation Y, iGeneration, and Generation Me, this age group has yet to be described in any way beyond their habits of consumption. “Younger Than Jesus” will begin to examine the visual culture this generation has created to date.

The exhibition catalogue, co-published by the New Museum and Steidl, will include reproductions of the work of the fifty artists chosen for the exhibition, as well as original essays by the exhibition curators and an anthology of articles by a diverse group of writers including philosophers, sociologists, journalists, activists, and marketing and technology experts.’
