Today the New Museum released some details regarding the show it has in the works that is centered around the year 1993 in New York. It’s going to be a blowout affair: all five floors of the museum are in play, and four curators are working on it, Massimiliano Gioni, Gary Carrion-Murayari, Jenny Moore and Margot Norton. The show is titled “NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star,” its subtitle coming from the eponymous Sonic Youth record recorded in that year. The show will run Feb. 13 through May 26, 2013.

The as-yet-incomplete list of artists includes the following names: Ida Applebroog, Art Club 2000, Alex Bag, Matthew Barney, Kathe Burkhart, John Currin, Coco Fusco, Robert Gober, Nan Goldin, Félix González-Torres, Ann Hamilton, David Hammons, On Kawara, Byron Kim, Alix Lambert, Sean Landers, Sarah Lucas, Paul McCarthy, Suzanne McClelland, Gabriel Orozco, Pepón Osorio, Elizabeth Peyton, Steven Pippin, Charles Ray, Jason Rhoades, Julia Scher, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman, Rudolf Stingel, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Nari Ward, Hannah Wilke, Jack Whitten.

“NYC 1993,” according to the museum’s release, is “conceived as a time capsule, an experiment in collective memory that attempts to capture a specific moment at the intersection of art, pop culture, and politics.”

Sounds like it could end up being a great one.

Here’s something to get us all in the mood.
