Jack Goldstein: Pictures and Sounds
Jack Goldstein, a California artist who emerged in the mid 70’s, is considered an important member of the Pictures Generation. This movement sourced material from movies, magazines, photographs, music, and mined other cultural artifacts. Along with Cindy Sherman, Robert Longo, Louise Lawler, and others, these artists introduced a completely new way of seeing and making art. In the mid-70’s Goldstein made phonograph records, films, performances and paintings that were considered revolutionary. Goldstein’s burgeoning career was cut short when he committed suicide in 2003. Recently, he has inspired a new generation of young artists and followers.
Seen on this video is a 2013 retrospective at the Jewish Museum in New York, and a video segment of his 1981 exhibition at Metro Pictures Gallery. Also included are rare 1977 and 1981 video interviews conducted by Jody McMahon-Winer and Marc H. Miller PhD, respectively, where they discusses Goldstein’s records, films and paintings. Helene Winer, director of Metro Pictures Gallery and an early champion of Goldstein’s art, discusses his work.
