With over 60 exhibitions set among beautiful 12th-century churches and former industrial buildings, the 40th Rencontres d’Arles is not to be missed. The carefully prepared exhibitions are mostly produced by the Rencontres team, along with artists and curators, and often travel on to other parts of the world.
Returning to Arles after over twenty years, Nan Goldin is presented in 40 Years of Ruptures, and has invited 12 photographers to participate in the exhibition Ça me touche, Nan Goldin’s Guests: 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 on view at the Atelier de Mécanique.
Additionally, Goldin is presenting three personal exhibitions: The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, a visual diary of her life in New York; Sisters, Saints and Sibyls, a tribute to her sister and to those rebel women fighting for survival in society; and her own collection of photographs. On Saturday, July 11, Nan Goldin will be honored with a Discovery and Book Award ceremony for her influential work in contemporary photography. Aperture originally published Goldin’s masterwork The Ballad of Sexual Dependency in 1986.
