"Jack Goldstein"

RAT HOLE GALLERY


By HENRY WONG
Staff writer

When minimalism was at its height during the 1980s-'90s, Jack Goldstein (1945-2003) focused on imagery from movies, books, photographs and magazines. He reworked such materials into paintings and film art, and he is often remembered as one of the artists who helped build the foundation of postmodern art.

This is the first time Goldstein's work is being shown in Japan, and the exhibition presents representative pieces in film, painting, photography and sound. Of particular note are his short films from the '70s that each loop an isolated action or movement, such as "The Jump," a 26 second loop that uses altered footage from Leni Riefenstahl's documentary of the 1936 Berlin Olympics; Jan. 25-March 25.
