Guido Floating by Nan Goldin

Jun 28, 2020 - Arnoldas Kubilius

Guido floating, Levanzo, Sicily, 1999 is an image by Nan Goldin that I return to throughout the years. It’s so magical and painterly!

I was happy to see her legendary ever-evolving slideshow accompanied by music hand-picked by her a few years ago in Paris. Last year, I visited her gut-wrenching show at Tate Modern in London.

Here’s Nan Goldin talking about her most prominent series of work, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency.

And here’s a very recent Q&A with her.
