$5,000 toward the catalogue that will accompany the exhibition Resistance/Reactions: A Michael Goldberg Retrospective, organized by museum curator Alice Hutchison. A native New Yorker, Goldberg studied at the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Art before enlisting in the U.S. Army, where he was wounded in battle. After returning to the New York School, Goldberg’s abstractions evolved from gestural imagery reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism to powerful architectural forms, dense with materiality that combine strongly delineated shapes with energtic brush marks.
