Amy Goldin: Art in a Hairshirt
Though her star shone only briefly (she wrote from 1964 until her death in 1978), Amy Goldin made several original contributions to post-war art criticism, including admitting the decorative arts into larger painting-dominated criticism. Artist and protege of Goldin, Robert Kushner and critic and Pratt professor Dominique Nahas join host Michael Rush on this special show on Goldin and the state of art criticism today.
At the time of this conversation, Hard Press Editions had just released the first-ever collection of essays by Goldin. Over thirty essays taken from the pages of Artnews, Artforum, Art Journal, New American Review, International Journal for Aesthetics and Art Criticism, Art in America and her personal journals during the 60s and 70s, have been selected by Robert Kushner and relayed with complementary accounts from prominent art world writers.

He was Director of the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University from 2005-2009, and Director of the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art from 2000-2004.more
