Discussion with Douglas Crimp and Jens Hoffmann Set for The Jewish Museum, 5/23
The Jewish Museum is presenting Where Is Jack Goldstein? on Thursday, May 23 at 6:30 pm.
Douglas Crimp, noted critic, curator and professor at the University of Rochester, and Jens Hoffmann, Deputy Director for Exhibitions and Public Programs at The Jewish Museum, will discuss artist Jack Goldstein as a pioneer of conceptual art practices. Douglas Crimp curated the legendary Pictures exhibition at Artists Space in 1977, which gave its name to artists collectively known as the Pictures Generation. Enthralled by mass culture, Jack Goldstein and other Pictures Generation artists took photography, film and performance in new directions, and expanded the stylistic vocabulary of painting and drawing by appropriating images from books, magazines, advertisements, television, and film. This program is part of Dialogue and Discourse, conversations at The Jewish Museum featuring artists and scholars exploring global perspectives on topics related to current exhibitions, and is offered in conjunction with the exhibition, Jack Goldstein × 10,000, on view May 10 - September 29, 2013.
