The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is pleased to announce the afternoon symposium Art in the 1970s: Through the Lens of Francesca Woodman, presented in conjunction with the exhibition Francesca Woodman, on view through June 13.
On Friday, May 18, beginning at 4pm, 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 Timescalls “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.
Organized by Jennifer Blessing, Senior Curator, Photography, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
Topics and speakers include:
George Baker, University of California, Los Angeles
The Odd Geometry of Time
Jane Blocker, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
Memoir on the Work of Francesca Woodman
Moyra Davey, New York
Joan Jonas, New York, with Jennifer Blessing
Francesca Woodman and Feminist Video in the 1970s
William Kaizen, Northeastern University, Boston
The program is immediately followed by a private reception and includes an exhibition viewing of Francesca Woodman.
