RoseLee Goldberg

RoseLee Goldberg’s seminal study, Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present (first published in 1979 and now in its third edition) is regarded as the leading text for understanding the development of the genre and has been translated into more languages (including Chinese, Croatian, French, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian) than any other book of its kind. When director of the Royal College of Art (RCA) Gallery in London, Goldberg established a program that pioneered an integrative approach to curating exhibitions, performance, and symposia, directly involving the various departments of the RCA in all aspects of the exhibitions program. As curator at The Kitchen in New York she continued to advocate for multi-disciplinary practices to have equal prominence by establishing the exhibition space, a video viewing room, and a performance series. It was here that Goldberg curated the first solo exhibitions of Cindy Sherman, Sherri Levine, Robert Longo, Jack Goldstein and The Kipper Kids, among others. Most recently, her vision in the creation of Performa has set a precedent for performance art that is now impacting museum programming and diverse audiences across the U.S. and abroad. In 2010 she was awarded the ICI Agnes Gund Curatorial Award and in 2006 named a Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters. Since 1987, Goldberg has taught at New York University.
