Pure Image: Jack Goldstein Retrospective to New York
by William S. Smith
Jack Goldstein's first American museum retrospective, opening this week at New York's Jewish Museum, offers a chance to reevaluate a key artist of the Pictures Generation. Guest curator Philip Kaiser (now director of Cologne's Museum Ludwig), organized "Jack Goldstein x 10,000" for the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, Calif., where the exhibition first opened last June. On view in New York May 10-Sept. 29, the retrospective is an appropriately bicoastal survey for an artist (1945-2003) who came of age during one of the most fertile periods for Conceptualism in Los Angeles before establishing himself as a canonical New York appropriation artist.
