NAN GOLDIN – A PRIVATE COLLECTION
This week Atlas presents an exceptional collection of prints by American photographer Nan Goldin (Washington, 1953). Her work, celebratad iternationally, often explores LGBT bodies, moments of intimacy, the HIV crisis, the opioid epidemic and Goldin’s family and friends.
Goldin began taking black-and-white photographs of her friends in the transvestite community of Boston in the early 1970s and had her first solo show at Project, Inc., in Boston in 1973. As she progressed through school, she began using bright Cibachrome prints.
After moving to New York, the setting for many of her most renowned photographs, she quickly became involved in the downtown New Wave scene, presenting slide shows of her images accompanied by music at punk rock venues such as the Mudd Club and later at art spaces. The ever-growing body of images she used in these slide shows formed the basis of The Ballad of Sexual Dependency (1980–86). This series, with its snapshot-style portrayals of amorous or abusive couples, drug addiction, and intimate details of the artist’s life, established Goldin as a major photographer when selections were shown at the Whitney Biennial in 1985.
