PATTI SMITH 1969-1976
February 20, 2012 - May 25, 2012
Linn’s images of Patti Smith range from the vulnerable to the iconic, focusing on shifting influences and relationships with artists such as Robert Mapplethorpe and Sam Shepard. The black-and-white photographs capture Smith in the intimate and grainy atmosphere of a bygone New York when Smith–a struggling poet, pre-rock’n’roll–agreed to pose for Linn. Judy Linn’s photographs are in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Detroit Art Institute, and the Dallas Museum of Art. She teaches at Vassar College. All works are courtesy of the artist and Feature, Inc., New York.
