This exhibit is the first major museum survey to examine, within a historical context, the art that emerged in this pivotal decade — and it might be the first because many of us are still coming to terms with the 1990s as a piece of history.

Nonetheless, the show displays the work of 45 U.S. artists — including Donald Moffett, Catherine Opie and Frances Stark — with installations, videos, paintings, sculpture, drawing, prints, photography and early Internet art.

Details: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. $5-$9; free on Thursdays. 200 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. 512-471-7324, blantonmuseum.org.
