The sky is an expansive and wondrous thing. Humans have gazed upwards for centuries, trying to chart, index, record, and understand its vastness and what lies beyond. It can represent hope, knowledge, and the heavens, as well as loss and sadness. Discover how artists in “NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star,” such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Robert Gober, and Lily van der Stokker depict the sky in their work. Then head up to the New Museum Sky Room and explore a few ways of studying the sky through several different projects.
