Jack Goldstein X10,000



If you guys have a chance you should make it to this before its over. Jun 24, 2012 - Sep 9, 2012

This exhibition is the first American retrospective of Jack Goldstein (1945–2003), a central figure in Postmodernist discourse of the 1970s and 1980s. Goldstein’s oeuvre developed over the years in an unusual breadth of media, from sculpture, performance, and film, to photography, records of sound effects, paintings, and aphorisms. The exhibition includes two immersive installations, 20 of Goldstein’s films produced from 1971 to 1983, a representative selection of 22 paintings demonstrating their thematic breadth, and a selection of 18 records with listening stations. The exhibition concludes with Goldstein’s Aphorisms (1982), Totems (1988–90), and other selected writings produced between 1982 and 2002. 10,000 x Jack Goldstein is accompanied by a 250-page, fully illustrated catalogue that includes an artist’s project by James Welling, and texts by Philipp Kaiser, Douglas Crimp, John Kelsey, Alexander Dumbadze, and Meg Cranston. Given Goldstein’s legacy and his increasing relevance to younger artists, a retrospective of his work is long overdue and essential to the larger re-evaluation of post-1960s American art. The exhibition will tour nationally.

Jack Goldstein, Untitled, 1984; Acrylic on canvas; Collection Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, CA; Purchase with funds provided through prior gift of Mrs. Ethel Rose.

LAMA’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY AUCTION OCTOBER 7, 2012

I am excited to go to this! LAMA held its first auction on October 10, 1992. Twenty years later, they are celebrating LAMA’s history with a landmark auction of exceptional Modern Art & Design spanning the 20th century.

Highlights include a rare selection of works by Richard Pettibone, an original work on paper from 1956 by Sam Francis, an early monumental coffee table by George Nakashima, an original work by Andy Warhol, and a collage by Yayoi Kusama.

“Our first sale was packed with over 200 people, standing-room only, and in fact, we had to have a porter and a video monitor on the side walk to be able to collect bids from people who could not fit inside the room. After this first auction, I shut down the retail space with my brother on La Brea; it was obvious that auctions would be our future.”
- Peter Loughrey, Founder of LAMA and Director of Fine Art
