Recalling 1993

New Museum

Issue 27 | July 2013

Background

In the early 90s New York was a city in turmoil. 1993 was a pivotal year that began to shape the New York we know today. The New Museum exhibition, NYC 1993: EXPERIMENTAL JET SET, TRASH AND NO STAR, transports you to what life was like back then. To drive awareness, the museum created Recalling 1993 and brought the exhibit to every street corner in Manhattan using one of the last remaining relics of that time: the pay phone. The campaign turned 5,000 of these pay phones into time machines, delivering over 100 stories from real New Yorkers who were there twenty years ago.
