Exposing the Body, Baring the Soul - Francesca Woodman at The Guggenheim Museum
Exposing the Body, Baring the Soul - Francesca Woodman at The Guggenheim Museum (NY Times). "...Francesca Woodman, the photographer who took her own life at 22 in 1981, is as close to a true saint as the putatively secular world of contemporary art can claim. The dreamy, formally playful and disarmingly erotic pictures Woodman made — mostly of herself partly unclothed or naked — project a self surrendering unreservedly to the spirit of art. When viewing the approximately 120 pieces in 'Francesca Woodman,' a survey of her career at the Guggenheim Museum, it is hard to shake off the admittedly absurd notion that she was too purely an artist for this muddy world."
