Francesca Woodman: Portrait of A Reputation at MCA Denver

Photographs and Ephemera from the Collection of George Lange

September 20, 2019 through April 5, 2020
MCA Denver

Photographs and ephemera from the collection of George Lange—Francesca Woodman’s close friend while at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design in the 1970s and later in New York City—comprise this intimate and insightful exhibition, curated by Nora Burnett Abrams. Woodman’s photographs, notes and letters—shown alongside Lange’s portraits of her—offer a nuanced picture of her years at RISD, where she honed her already well-formed creative vision through experimentation both playful and purposeful.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
