Traveling Exhibition Available
Neil Goldberg: Stories the City Tells Itself is a traveling exhibition that brings together two decades of video art and photography by New York-based artist Neil Goldberg (b. 1963), from his first video work, She’s a Talker (1993), to the recently completed Wind Tunnel (2012). The single channel videos, video installations, and still photographs presented in the exhibition capture the unexpected power and resonance of everyday moments in the urban environment.
Though Goldberg’s work is set in New York, it transcends the boundaries of the five boroughs, engaging fundamental questions about human experience, in urban contexts and beyond – the repeated gestures of urbanites going about their daily lives, the unforeseen lyricism of the city’s streets and subways, and the singular humanity of each individual in the city’s ostensibly anonymous crowds. These themes are explored in an immersive exhibition environment.
Taken together, Goldberg’s work is "tender, moving and sad but also deeply funny" according to Randy Kennedy of The New York Times, "like rummaging around in the parts of your memory that habit elides day by day."
