Bruce Goff Exhibition and Lecture

1970-2

Announcement of Bruce Goff’s lecture, presented in connection with the exhibition of his work

“It is hard to believe that the first major retrospective of the work of Bruce Goff is only now being shown in this country, packed into the tight quarters of the Architectural League….On the other hand, it isn’t hard to believe, because the Eastern Architectural Establishment doesn’t really believe in Bruce Goff. He is apt to be dismissed as a  figment of Midwestern imagination, a designer of outré fantasies which elicit a polite frisson among the elite East Coast axis that has produced a generation of cool corporate splendor spawned by the correct International Style. Go to the League, gentlemen and ladies (architects are still in that order professionally)….If you can suppress a reaction to some obvious home-grown corn, there is an artist here.”  Ada Louise Huxtable, The New York Times, February 8, 1970
