Artist Run New York: The Seventies


Curated by Jessamyn Fiore, Artist Run New York: The Seventies explores the transformation of contemporary art in 1970s New York. The exhibition looks at the vital role artists played in an artistic revolution that underscored multi-disciplinary collaborations that went beyond the visual arts to include performance, film, theatre, dance, writing and music. 



JPNF is an ICOM registered museum of contemporary art that is home to a collection of European and American abstract art from the 1960s to today. It is also the custodian of a remarkable archive tracing forty years of artist-collector exchanges. JPNF continues to acquire and commission works and offers an inspiring calendar of educational and public programmes. The museum was designed by Mario Jossa, of Marcel Breuer & Associates.  


Artists: Participating artists include Gordon Matta-Clark, Tina Girouard, Philip Glass, Robert Grosvenor, Suzanne Harris, Jene Highstein, Nancy Holt, Joan Jonas, Richard Landry, Richard Nonas, Alan Saret, Keith Sonnier, John Torreano, Richard Tuttle, Lynn Umlauf, and Lawrence Weiner.
