DESCRIPTION

Nan Goldin: Nine Self-Portraits will feature recent photographs never exhibited before, as well as diaristic and contemplative works spanning back to the 1990s. With her characteristic rich colors, deep shadows and lush textures, Goldin shares very personal images of desire, intimacy and introspection.

The exhibition runs concurrently with Peter Hujar: Love & Lust. Goldin is also among the many photographers influenced by Peter Hujar. As she wrote in the 1994 catalogue Peter Hujar: A Retrospective, “He was a magician, he hypnotized his subjects. He never forced exposure, he seduced people to want to reveal all to him.” She added, “He taught so much to me and everyone who knew him…we went through periods of trying to work in each other’s style. I think it changed both of us.”
