Francesca Woodman, the most comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s work since Woodman's untimely death in 1981 at the age of 22, will be on view at the Guggenheim Museum of New York (USA) through June 13, 2012. Spanning the breadth of her production, the exhibition includes more than 120 vintage photographs, artist books, and a selection of recently discovered and rarely seen short videos, presenting a historical reconsideration of Woodman’s brief but extraordinary career.
Woodman’s oeuvre represents a remarkably rich and singular exploration of the human body in space and of the genre of self-portraiture in particular. Her interest in female subjectivity, conceptualist practice, and photography’s relationship to both literature and performance are also the hallmarks of the heady moment in American photography during which she came of age. This retrospective offers an occasion to examine more closely the maturation and expression of a highly subjective and coherent artistic vision. It also presents an important and timely opportunity to reassess the critical developments that took place in the 1970s in American photography.
Date: until June 13.
Location: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. 1071 Fifth Avenue. New York, NY, 10128, 0173. USA.
Opening hours: from Sunday to Wednesday from 10am to 5.45pm. Fridays from 10am to 5.45pm. Saturdays from 10am to 7.45pm.
