The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents URBAN THEATER: NEW YORK ART IN THE 1980s. Vibrant, vital, and discordant, the New York art scene of the 1980s gave rise to some of the contemporary art world’s most recognizable features. As the artists who emerged in that decade now set records at auction, the era is ripe to be reexamined. Representing in turns a cool irony, reflections on media culture, consumerism, cartoons, and street art, the work collected here re-creates the tense energy of a grittier New York.

Terrible things breed in broken hearts.

Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace.

It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.

Brooklyn-based artist Jules de Balincourt is known for his expressive, radiantly colored paintings that vary distinctly in style, size, and theme. Through subject matter such as cityscapes and present-day genre scenes, his work often evokes notions of American utopia and dystopia, politics, and various societal groups. De Balincourt works on up to ten paintings at a time without sketches or source materials, and he considers them chapters—symbiotic, yet independent, darting between abstraction and representation.
