Goldberg’s collection of modern and contemporary works has been highlighted in Australia for his interest in emerging American artists, and in 2016 was on display in a traveling group exhibition “Stars + Stripes: American Art of the 21st Century from the Goldberg Collection.” The exhibition, which toured a number of Australian museums and galleries, featured artists such as Sterling Ruby, Davina Semo, and Richard Aldrich. Though the collection is large and growing, the Sydney-based private equity chairman told the Sydney Morning Herald that he buys art according to his own tastes, rather than with future worth in mind.
