RoseLee Goldberg is an art historian, author, critic, and curator specializing in modern and contemporary performance art. In 2004, Goldberg founded PERFORMA. She has created performance programs for the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum, both in New York, and is a frequent contributor to Artforum.From Publishers Weekly:
First widely, and fittingly, recognized in the 1970s the heyday of conceptual art, which insisted on "an art of ideas over product, and on an art that could not be bought and sold" performance art has thrived in recent decades, according to RoseLee Goldberg's Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present. First published more than 20 years ago, the book has been extensively updated. Goldberg (Laurie Anderson), a former curator of the Kitchen Center for Music, Video and Performance in New York City, analyzes artists as varied as the dadaists, Laurie Anderson, John Cage, Cindy Sherman, Mariko Mori, Paul McCarthy, Matthew Barney, Karen Finley, Forced Entertainment and Desperate Optimists. It's mandatory reading for scholars and practitioners, and helpful to anyone who wants to learn more about this intriguing but often bewildering art form. 186 illus.
