Founded in 1972 in Downtown New York, Artists Space has for four decades successfully contributed to changing the landscape for contemporary art—lending support to emerging artists and emerging ideas alike. Artists Space has been the site of provocative discussion within contemporary debate, from the postmodern image (Douglas Crimp’s Pictures, 1977) to identity politics (Adrian Piper’s It’s Just Art, 1981), to institutional critique (Michael Asher’s Untitled, 1988) to the AIDS crisis (Nan Goldin’s Witnesses: Against our Vanishing, 1989). Artists Space has introduced a number of artists to a wider public, among them Sherrie Levine, Louise Lawler, Laurie Anderson, Barbara Bloom, John Baldessari, Jack Smith, Andrea Fraser, Haim Steinbach, Tim Rollins, Lari Pittman, Group Material, Barbara Kruger, Laurie Simmons, Fred Wilson, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Mike Kelley, Judith Barry, Jenny Holzer, Danh Vo, Laura Poitras, Hito Steyerl, and Cameron Rowland.
