Greater New York 2021 Catalog
"Knowledge and stories often do not enter into an official archive or history, and so they seem to disappear to some. We’re devoted to surfacing the ways in which they have not disappeared and how they can be brought back to life, like a resurrection process: research as resurrection."- Shanzhai Lyric
Greater New York artists Shanzhai Lyric, BlackMass Publishing, and Hiram Maristany sat down to discuss the importance of documentary and archival methods. It's just one of several roundtable conversations between artists in the exhibition, all of which are now available in the Greater New York catalogue, available for purchase through Artbook @ MoMA PS1.
The catalog is a sourcebook, reader, and document of Greater New York, which gathered an intergenerational and international group of 47 artists and collectives with deep ties to New York. Through images, artist writings, roundtable conversations, and oral histories, the catalog expands core thematic threads which run through the exhibition.
