Amy Goldin's critical writing inspired many artists of the 1960s and '70s. Her unconventional acceptance of the new art forms emerging during the time and her challenge to the traditional teaching of art history in the classroom paved the way for broader parameters within the definition of art. Thirty of Goldin's extensive writings have been selected and coupled with insightful first-person accounts from fellow art critics and art historians in this presentation. Goldin's thought-provoking articles on Islamic art, conceptual art, folk art, Abstract Expressionism, and African American art are featured along with in-depth analysis of such artists as Henri Matisse, George Sugarman, Manny Farber and Morris Louis.
