      1. The exhibition The Decade Show: Frameworks of Identity in the 1980s was curated by Marcia Tucker, Julia Herzberg, Sharon Patton, Gary Sangster, and Laura Trippi and shown at the Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Art, New Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, NYC (12.05.–19.08.1990). This is a classic example of an exhibition attempting to deal with the increasing prominence of identity politics in the US; one review noted: ‘Instead of a stylistic survey, the show’s organizers have opted for an issue-oriented exploration, and in this age of feminism, homelessness, AIDS and increasing racial and ethnic diversity—and tension—the umbrella issue they have designated is identity.’ Exhibited artists included: Tim Rollins and K.O.S, the Guerrilla Girls, Gran Fury, Group Material, Louise Lawler, Cindy Sherman, Hans Haacke, Faith Ringgold, etc.
