The New Museum opened its latest exhibition last night, NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star, and I can’t stop thinking about it. Not because of the individual art works—although there are many interesting and compelling pieces in the show–but because of the way they work together to capture a particular time and place.

75 artists are represented in NYC 1993, which fills every nook and cranny of all five of the museum’s exhibition floors, as well as its space at 231 Bowery—a first for the museum.
