Francesca Woodman: Alternate Stories
2 November - 23 December 2021
Marian Goodman Gallery is delighted to announce Francesca Woodman: Alternate Stories, a solo presentation of vintage photographs by Francesca Woodman, many of which have never been seen.
This presentation will be a departure from past exhibitions of the artist’s work, drawing on newly available vintage prints and archival material provided by the Woodman Family Foundation which offer a fresh glimpse into the varied thought processes, interests, and influences that motivated Woodman’s picture-making.

The presentation will move in and beyond key arcs of the artist’s creative life and will be clustered thematically to highlight special groupings of works in relational contexts which have heretofore not been seen.
A fully illustrated catalogue has been published on the occasion of the exhibition, featuring archival materials and a commissioned essay by critic and novelist Chris Kraus. Her essay, Impure Alchemy, examines the artist’s life via her work and explores the technical means and literary strategies that animate her photographs.
Francesca Woodman: Alternate Stories offers a compendium of images, which, as Kraus writes, still "inspire new mysteries and questions."
