The Ballad of Sexual Dependency exhibition by American photographer Nan Goldin is now open at Tate Modern. Curated by Sarah Allen, these intimate works explore the human condition, including celebration and sadness, love and violence, life and death.
Nan Goldin has said that photography saved her life. Since her late teens, she has used the camera to intimately depict her own life and those closest to her. Her photographs are uncensored and uncompromising. For Goldin, this reflects her desire ‘to leave a record of my life that no one can revise’. – from Tate Modern
The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is one of Goldin’s most notable works, documenting the post-Stonewall gay subculture, as well as the artist’s family and friends.
The exhibition is open at Tate Modern until 27 October 2019.
