Arrestingly beautiful and extraordinarily poignant, her work reaches deep into our hearts and haunts us for hours - maybe days - after leaving the show. Francesca Woodman was born on April 3, 1978 and took her life on January 19, 1981.
I am writing a review for Women Arts Journal Quarterly's fall issue and will share this on my blog after it is published.
In the meantime, please view these videos and comment on our blog or on the New York Arts Exchange FB page
I look forward to reading your candid thoughts and interpretations. Recollections are especially welcome.
