Venice: Nan Goldin

So what’s a trip to Austin without a trip to the Blanton Museum of Art?

Last week I got to oppurtunity to check out their current exhibition, The Human Touch, which focused on on the human condition through contemporary photography, sculture, paintings and sketches.

I was happily surprised by the museum, and the exhibition earned major brownie point for me when I stubbled upon a Nan Goldin photograph (one of my favorite contemporary photographers). Her work entitled, Gido on the Dock, (Venice, Italy, 1998) possesses that feeling of being both lost and found, here and there, and captures that mysterious energy we all love about Venice.

Check out one of my other blog posts on Nan Goldin: Drugs, Sex, Art: Nan Goldin

Have a happy Thursday everyone 🙂
