Bergstein's work contrasts the awesome and the trivial, the high and the
low, the manic and the melancholic using sources from Brueghel to "The
Simpsons." He is the recipient of an Artadia grant (2007), a career
achievement award from the St. Botolph Club (2007), and a four-week
residency at the Liguria Study Center in Genoa, Italy (2006). His solo shows
include Gallery NAGA and the Danforth Museum (scheduled for 11/09);
Howard Yezerski Gallery, Boston ('04, '02, '99, '97); Stephan Stux Gallery,
NY ('99); Galerie Bonnier, Geneva, Switzerland; Zolla Lieberman Gallery,
Chicago, IL; and the DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA. He is represented in
the collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; MIT; DeCordova
Museum; Davis Museum at Wellesley College; IBM; and many others. He
has been reviewed widely in the local press as well as Tema Celeste,
ARTnews, Art in America, and Artforum. He has been on the faculty at the
School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for over two decades.
