Dani Leventhal: Everyday Intuition
Franklin Evans: Paint and Process
In this video interview, Franklin Evans discusses his installation timecompressionmachine (2010), in which he covered the floor and walls of the gallery with unstretched canvas, screens made of painted strips of tape, and old newsprint and press releases from gallery exhibitions. Composed of numerous overlapping parts, the installation gives the sense of a work in progress. Additionally, the ephemeral nature of the installation, which exists solely for the duration of Greater New York 2010, is highlighted by Evans’s use of materials that are typically considered disposable. As the artist puts it, his environments suggest “the not-quite-finished, the in-transition, the nearly-emerging, the slowly-evolving, the near-end, and the move-towards-erasure.”
Deana Lawson: Assembled Histories
In this video interview, artist Deana Lawson talks about her photography-based work, including her thought-provoking piece in the Greater New York 2010 exhibition—Assemblage (2010), an installation consisting of hundreds of four-by-six-inch glossy photographs T-pinned to the walls of one of MoMA PS1’s third-floor galleries.

Preserving a Forest at MoMA PS1
David Brooks’s work takes the fragile dynamics of ecosystems as its subject, creating sculptures and installations that consider the relationship between built and natural environments. One powerful example—his massive site-specific installation Preserved Forest—is currently on view as part of the Greater New York 2010 exhibition at MoMA PS1.
Greater New York 2010: Artists Present
How much can you say about a work of art in twenty-five seconds? That’s the challenge we posed to ten artists whose work is featured in Greater New York 2010, on view through October 18, 2010, at MoMA PS1. Last Wednesday, we invited five of these artists to join us at MoMA for the first session of Greater New York 2010: Artists Present, a two-part public program wherein artists in the show are invited to give the public a behind-the-scenes look at their work and their creative processes using a twenty-image PowerPoint presentation. The catch? Each image is only onscreen for twenty-five seconds, and the artists don’t have control of the slideshow! It’s almost like art speed-dating!
