artists & participants
This exhibition will explore breakthrough works made by some of the most important young artists to graduate from leading international art schools in the 1990s. The exhibition examines the conditions, consequences, and contexts surrounding these formative works. Featured artists include Matthew Barney, Thomas Demand, Renee Green, Damien Hirst, Steve McQueen, Takashi Murakami, Chris Ofili, Laura Owens, Diana Thater, and Rachel Whiteread. This is also a rare opportunity to view many pivotal works from major regional centers such as Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, London, and Tokyo. The exhibition is organized by MOCA’s chief curator Paul Schimmel and is accompanied by a comprehensive catalogue co-edited by University of Virginia assistant professor of art history Howard Singerman, author of Art Subjects: Making Artists in the Twentieth Century.
