The first American retrospective of the Canadian-born artist Jack Goldstein (1945–2003) brings to light his important legacy. This comprehensive exhibition frames Goldstein as a central figure of the Pictures Generation of the 1970s and 1980s and showcases his influential paintings and films, while also including installations, writings, and pioneering sound recordings. The artists of the Pictures Generation, including Cindy Sherman, Sherrie Levine, Laurie Simmons, Barbara Kruger, David Salle, and Robert Longo, explored a new stylistic vocabulary grounded in their interest in popular culture, appropriating images from books, magazines, advertisements, television, and film.
