Jack Goldstein (1945-2003) is increasingly seen as one of the most important yet most enigmatic artists of his generation. A major survey show of his work Jack Goldstein x 10000 curated by Philipp Kaiser was presented at the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach in 2012 and travelled to the Jewish Museum in New York City in 2013 (catalog). Other important solo exhibitions include a retrospective at the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (cat.) in 2009, Le Magasin, Centre National d’Art Contemporain, Grenoble (cat.) the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Luckman Gallery, Cal State, Los Angeles, and the Kunstverein in Hamburg and all in 2002, the year before his death. Goldstein’s work has recently been included in the Gwanju Biennal, Korea (2014), the 54th annual Venice Biennale (2011), Pacific Standard Time: Los Angeles Art 1945-1980, Pomona College of Art (2011), and Pictures Generation: 1974-1984 at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (2009). In 2019, a major three person exhibition also curated by Kaiser, Disappearing - California c. 1970: Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden and Jack Goldstein was presented at The Modern, Fort Worth (catalog). A catalog Jack Goldstein x 10000, 2012 published by Prestel and featuring an interview between Goldstein and gallery artist Meg Cranston is available.
