Jori Finkel explains that Jack Goldstein will get an LA survey show after all:
Fans of the late Montreal-born, L.A.-based artist Jack Goldstein, who recently learned that MOCA scrapped plans to organize a survey of his work, will be happy to know that the show has found a home. Director Dennis Szakacs of the Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) tells Culture Monster that his institution will present the first U.S. Goldstein retrospective in the summer of 2012.
“This kind of show is right in our wheelhouse, because it’s about a very important artist who has not been recognized widely enough,” says Szakacs. He calls Goldstein, who died in 2003, “one of the instigators of what many people consider one of the last cohesive, avant-garde movements in American art: the Pictures Generation.” […]
Szakacs says he contacted Philipp Kaiser, an adjunct curator at MOCA, about the show a few months ago.”I had heard like everyone else that the MOCA show was canceled, so I called Philipp to see what we could do. He had been given the green light to bring the show elsewhere.”
