Les Rencontres d'Arles Photographie

Celebrating its fortieth year, Rencontres d'Arles invited Nan Goldin to guest curate exhibitions by David Armstrong, Marina Berio, Jean-Christian Bourcart, Antoine D'Agata, JH Engström, Jim Goldberg, Christine Fenzl, Leigh Ledare, Boris Mikhailov, Anders Petersen, Jack Pierson, Lisa Ross, and Annelies Strba.

Goldin also presents three exhibitions of her own work: The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, a visual diary of her life in New York; Sisters, Saints and Sibyls, a tribute to her sister; and a selection of photographs.

Goldin's curatorial projects and her three exhibitions are accompanied by enormous, career-spanning exhibitions of work by Willy Ronis, Roni Horn, Duane Michals, and Brian Griffin.
