Jack Goldstein and the CalArts Mafia
OUT OF PRINT! REPRINTED for 2011, now with white cover! Jack Goldstein and the CalArts Mafia is anchored by Goldstein's reflections, dramatized by Hertz into first person narratives, of the early days of CalArts and the last days of Chouinard; the New York artworld; the trials and tribulations of finding and maintaining success; his inter-personal relationships; and his disappearance from the art scene. They are complemented by the dramatized first person narratives of Goldstein's friends including John Baldessari, Troy Brauntuch, Rosetta Brooks, Jean Fisher, Robert Longo, Matt Mullican, and James Welling.
