Stars + Stripes: American Art of the 21st Century from the Goldberg Collection is an important exhibition drawn from the private collection of Sydney-based Lisa and Danny Goldberg.

The 51 works shown in the exhibition tour are drawn from an extensive collection of over 200 and includes painting, drawing, photography and sculpture highlighting the cutting-edge practices of a generation of American artists who explore the creative and conceptual possibilities that these mediums hold.

This is the first time in almost 50 years that a major exhibition of contemporary American art has been seen in Australia. In 1967 the Museum of Modern Art, New York toured Two Decades of American Painting to Australia. That ground-breaking exhibition introduced Australian audiences to the work of what was then a new generation of American artists including Andy Warhol (aged 39), Jasper Johns (aged 37) and Robert Rauschenberg (aged 42). Stars + Stripes introduces another generation of equally important American artists to Australian audiences.

Curated by Richard Perram OAM, Director, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, the exhibition captures a fascinating snapshot of recent contemporary art from North America and provides a unique opportunity to present works by artists not easily accessible to Australian audiences. 

Stars + Stripes: American Art of the 21st Century from the Goldberg Collection tour started in Bathurst in 2014 and will tour in 2015-16 to eight regional cities across Australia including Grafton, Manly, Cowra, Taree, Dubbo, Wagga Wagga, Latrobe Valley and Ipswich.

This is a Bathurst Regional Art Gallery exhibition in conjunction with Lisa and Danny Goldberg, toured by Museums and Galleries of NSW. Curated by Richard Perram OAM.
