“New York, NY, July 20, 2022—The Jewish Museum presents New York: 1962-1964, an exhibition that explores a pivotal three-year period in the history of art and culture in New York City, examining how artists living and working in New York responded to their rapidly changing world. Installed across two floors, this immersive exhibition presents more than 150 works of art—all made or seen in New York between 1962-1964—including painting, sculpture, photography, and film, alongside fashion, design, dance, poetry, and ephemera. The exhibition is on view at the Jewish Museum from July 22, 2022, through January 8, 2023.

New York: 1962-1964 is the last project conceived and curated by Germano Celant, the renowned art historian, critic, and curator who passed away in 2020. Celant was approached in 2017 by the Museum to address its influential role in the early 1960s New York art scene during a momentous period in American history. The result is New York: 1962-64, which uses the Jewish Museum’s role as the jumping-off point to examine how artists living and working in New York City responded to the events that marked this moment in time.”

The early 60s saw a transformation of New York City’s economy and media. This overhaul and the context of the time led to the birth of a new generation of painters, sculptors, filmmakers, and poets concerned with emanating the social and political change within the city. This exhibition showcases this exciting period of art history and the materials & concepts that emerged. In conjunction with ‘New York: 1962-1964’, the Jewish Museum is hosting a series of virtual classes that will focus on hand-picked pieces within the exhibition, offering an opportunity to learn more about the works and their creators.
