Vibrant, vital and discordant, the New York art scene of the 1980s gave rise to some of the contemporary art world's most recognizable features. As the artists who emerged in that decade now set records at auction, the era is ripe to be reexamined. Representing in turns a cool irony, reflections on media culture, consumerism, cartoons and street art, the work collected here re-creates the tense energy of a grittier New York.
