Guggenheim to feature Woodman

Francesca Woodman to be featured at the Guggenheim in March 2012. Woodman committed suicide at 22 in 1981 for supposedly not obtaining funding from the National Endowment of Art. Besides studying in Italy, she also was an artist-in-residence at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire. The images are haunting and very memorable, I'm excited for the exhibit.
Here is a very cool compilation of Woodman's works from the New York Times.

In relation to the sex abuse scandals that the Catholic Church has been under the spotlight for lately.

The sculpture, Cardinal Sin, is on display at the Walker Gallery in England.
