27th Annual Juried USF Exhibition




April 5 – May 5, 2003

About the Juror: Elyse Goldberg

In 1982, after studying art and traveling, Elyse Goldberg moved to New York. She has continuously worked in galleries since 1985, and in 1988 became Director of the John Weber Gallery. A selection of shows she curated include: Land/Scape; Drawings by Sculptors, Entropy: Robert Smithson and Loca Buvoli. The Estate of Robert Smithson was represented by the Weber Gallery, and due to her great interest in his work, it became her area of expertise.

After leaving the Weber Gallery in 1997, Goldberg spent time as an independent curator (Story at A.C. Projects Space; 25th Anniversary Exhibition of P.S. 122, with catalogue). She also formed a business, Projects One, which developed projects for artists as well as worked with a group of collectors with whom she organized visits to artists’ studios and galleries. The mission of Projects One was to educate and, hopefully, place works; but the emphasis was on education.

Simultaneously, she was also working as co-producer with Good Machine of a feature length independent film, directed by Bette Gordon, titled “Luminous Motion”, that was based on the novel by Scott Bradfield. This film was accepted into the Toronto Film Festival, the Locarno Film Festival and the Munich Film Festival. It then had a commercial run in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

In 1999, the Estate of Robert Smithson was looking for new management and gallery representation. James Cohan Gallery formally became the representative of the Estate and Goldberg was hired to handle the management. In 2001, she advanced to Director of the James Cohan Gallery, and among some of the group shows she has since curated are The Big Id, Painting Matter, Mapping Dislocations: Robert Smithson and Air, as well as two solo shows by Robert Smithson titled Mapping Dislocations and LANGUAGE TO BE LOOKED AT AND/OR THINGS TO BE READ- DRAWINGS 1962-63.

In addition to continuing as Director of the James Cohan Gallery, she is also currently working on a new film titled “What’s a Girl Gotta Do”, presently in pre-production.
