Symposium, May 18, 4p:
”Through the Lens of Francesca Woodman”
Guggenheim Museum, 1071 5th Ave., NYC (at 89th St)
Scholars and artists examine the relationship between the still and moving image in Francesca Woodman’s and other artists’ production during the 1970s, particularly as associated with Post-Minimalism, performance, and video. Using the framework of Woodman’s work, which the New York Times calls “a rare and beautiful thing,” this series of brief talks and group conversations reconsiders artistic video in the 1970s, notions of time and space in Woodman’s work, and feminist practice during the transformative artistic juncture of the period. Woodman’s recently released short videos will be screened.
$10 (Free for students with ID)
a retrospective exhibition of Francesca Woodman’s photographs is also on view (thru June 13)
