PS1 released the participating artist names in their Greater New York show, which will run May 23rd to October 18th. A number of artists included work with text and/or narrative in some way, a fairly enjoyable art world trend as far as trends go. An Atlas of Radical Cartography, Sharon Hayes, and DETEXT provide good examples of this, though there are more than I’ve listed above.
Incidentally, DETEXT’s first and only appearance on the blog prior to this post was their featured work at X-Initiative’s closing one night exhibition. Chronicling that event, DETEXT shares an amusing anecdote on the splash page of their website under the heading “What People Are Saying About Us”:
“WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FINISH HANGING YOUR STUFF? THE IMPORTANT ART CRITIC [JERRY SALTZ] IS AROUND THE CORNER. HE CAN’T SEE MY WORKS IF YOU ARE THERE ON THE LADDER.” Fellow Artist at X-Initiative
I should note that DETEXT, like many of the people on this list aren’t overly familiar names. This is a good sign. Names after the jump.
