Discipline: Film/Video
Region: New York, NY
MacDowell Fellowships: 2001

At MacDowell, Neil Goldberg began a project (unexpectedly) in which he interviewed other colonists about why they make art. He also edited footage for a new installation, "19 Rainstorms", which would be exhibited at Sara Meltzer Galery, NYC, in November 2001. Another new work, "A System for Writing Thankyou Notes", would be screened at the 35th NY exposition of short film and video in December 2001.

I've been exhibiting my video, photo and mixed media work since 1992 at venues including The Museum of Modern Art (where it is part of the permanent collection); The New Museum of Contemporary Art; The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum; The Wexner Center for the Arts; The Jewish Museum; The Kitchen; The Pacific Film Archive; Sara Meltzer Gallery; NGBK Kunsthalle, Berlin; Lothringer13 Kunsthalle, Munich; El Centro de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona; and the British Film Institute.
In 2012 my work was the subject of a mid-career survey at the Museum of the City of New York, entitled Stories the City Tells Itself, which was included in Time Out New York's "Best Art of 2012" list.
My work has been supported by fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Experimental Television Center, Harpo Foundation, CEC ArtsLink, Yaddo, and MacDowell.
In 2013 I was appointed a critic at the Yale School of Art, and have served as a visiting artist at Cooper Union, The School of Visual Arts, Parsons/The New School, New York University, and Temple University, among others. I graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in history and computer science.

When the small structure was moved, its size was doubled with the addition of a second room. This remodeling, financed by Mrs. Thomas E. Emery of Cincinnati…
