Unlike the violently seductive photographs of abusive love, sexual excess, and drug-induced decay for which Nan Goldin is best known, the luscious C-prints that make up "Scopophilia" are about pleasure.  Commissioned by the Louvre, this exhibition juxtaposes over 400 images from the artist's thirty-year career with original photographs taken from the museum's collection, creating a sumptuous series of diptychs and grid-like arrangements. The spontaneous gesture of Goldin's contemporary snapshot aesthe... [more]

Nan Goldin is a photographer less interested in capturing the decisive moment than gathering snapshots of those people closest to her over a prolonged period of time. Her images of friends and acquaintances since the 1980s, famously including drag queens, club kids and drug addicts, have imbedded in them a sense of time and development of her relationship with her subjects, as well as the way she collates images to create a portrait rather than summing it all up in one shot. This sense of intimacy and want... [more]

I saw David Wojnarowicz’s Fire in My Belly, 1987, the day before it was pulled from the exhibition "Hide/Seek" at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The exhibit itself has been touted by the gallery as “The first major museum exhibition to focus on sexual difference in the making of American portraiture.” Because of pressure from the Catholic League, and complaints from Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor (amongst others who haven’t actually seen the exhibition), the show... [more]

Embroiled in controversy—it's what you’d expect from an exhibition about gay portraiture at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.  In fact, it’s rather surprising that the controversy didn’t arise until a month after the show was open—just in time for World AIDS Day.  On November 30th, the Catholic League complained about David Wojnarowicz's 1987 video piece Fire in My Belly, a “vile video” that could be interpreted as nothing more than an attack on Christianity, all because o...

The American artist Nan Goldin is a leading exponent of ‘subjective photography’. Her own life forms the focus of her artistic work. Goldin has repeatedly spent extended periods in Berlin since the 1980s. In 1991 she was able to spend an entire year in Berlin as part of the DAAD artist programme. With around 100 photographs, the Berlinische Galerie is presenting a comprehensive insight into her work created in Berlin, whereby it is also drawing on previously unpublished material ... [more]

SFMOMA’s sprawling new photography survey, Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera Since 1870 turns the high powered gaze of the camera onto itself, exploring over a century of peeping, spying, monitoring, snooping and all other forms of illicit looking facilitated by the handy-dandy technology of the lens. It’s an impressively researched archive of images that is as prescient as it might be paranoid. And like most brilliant exhibits, it elaborates on a simple historical premi... [more]

      “These pictures come out of relationships, not observation.” -- Nan GoldinNan Goldin’s photographs are as touching and shocking today as they were thirty years ago. Their fascination does not necessarily stem from their subject matter—oscillating, as it does, between glamour and the gutter, with rare moments of normality and happiness—but from their radical intimacy. Goldin approaches only those who are close to her with her camera, thus sensitively capturing the everyday suffering fro... [more]

  As the summer season draws to a close, dragging in the heat, dragging down the sun a few minutes earlier, it seems that the art market is also dragging.  All’s certainly quiet on the Western Front.  Aside from a few rumbling U-Hauls making trips to and from gargantuan storage facilities, or the intermittent shuffle of a runner’s feet, the streets of Chelsea are silent.  The cobblestones pave what seems a deserted movie set; hot breeze whips fallen fliers against the frosted sea-green doors of th...

        Galerie Nordenhake is pleased to present ‘Dog Star Man', a group exhibition titled after Stan Brakhage's most ambitious experimental film produced in the early 60's. Often defined as a metaphor for the unity of creation, the film expresses a mythic conception of the struggle and fall of Man and its relationship with the Cosmos. Its images include both the microscopic and telescopic, and range from solar explosions to brief glimpses of the beloved's body. In a similar way, this exhibition brings... [more]
