“John Goodmanʼs camera, is not an instrument of detachment, analysis, or judgment, but an iris of an eye that is our own, dissolving ostensible barriers between object and subject.”
—Joyce Carol Oates’ review of Goodman’s The Times Square Gym Book.
Currently John is in the exhibition EXPOSED now at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. This past year he has exhibited the Boston Combat Zone and his Not Recent Color at the Howard Yezerski Gallery. Upcoming in 2012 are three solo exhibitions at Scott Nichols Gallery in San Francisco, Howard Yezerski Gallery in Boston and the University of Maine in Bangor.
John is in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, MFA Boston and SF/MOMA. He is represented by the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London, and Galerie Esther Woerdehoff in Paris.
