I can remember the first time I met Nan Goldin at Yale School of Art in September 1988 when I was a second year graduate student in the MFA Photography program. Charged with assisting Nan in the performance of The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, I saw first hand how impactful this work had been on her as an artist and a quickly rising star. Several years later at the opening of Peter Galassi's inaugural show as the Modern's new chief curator of photography, we met again our art works hanging just next to each other in what felt like a cavernous gallery. She was working in color 35 mm and I was working in 120mm black and white, but we understood something of each others need to document poignant and intimate life moments, Now, thirty years after Ballad was first introduced to adoring fans, MoMA is hosting the art work for a whole new generation. On display through February, 2017. You can read more about the exhibit by clicking here.
