Second Life: Jack Goldstein and the CalArts Mafia by Jack Goldstein
In 1974, after Helene quit her job at Pomona, we went together to New York; after a few years she became the Director of Artists Space. Since graduating in 1972, I had been going back and forth between L.A. and New York; that continued for another couple of years.
Vision Magazine: Idea-Oriented Art in Print (1975–1981) by Tom Marioni
Artist Tom Marioni is best known for early Conceptual works such as "The Act of Drinking Beer with Friends Is the Highest Form of Art" (1970), and as the founder of the Museum of Conceptual Art (MOCA), one of the first alternative art spaces in the United States, which he opened in 1970 and directed until its closure in 1984. He published the first issue of Vision , an extraordinary publication which lasted for only six issues, in 1975. Both MOCA and Vision helped to define new forms of art making and connect artists experimenting in a site-specific or performative vein. Here, Marioni recounts the story of Vision 36 years later.
