The Other Side

By Nan Goldin


Fabulous vintage poster for Nan Goldin’s The Other Side exhibition at the Matthew Marks Gallery in New York.   The Other Side was a drag queen bar in Boston in the 1970’s, and was later the title of one of Nan Goldin’s books.

The poster features a Nan Goldin artwork ‘Ivy in the Boston Garden, Veiled, 1973’ a drag queen smoking a cigarette in a holder, wearing a classy outfit, veiled… looking a million dollars.

‘I was 18, and felt like I was a queen, completely devoted to my friends, they became my whole world. Part of my worship of them involved, photographing them. I wanted to show them how beautiful they were. I never saw them as men dressing as women, but as something different a third gender’

The Artist

Nan Goldin

Nan Goldin is a great documenter of both ordinary life and the edges of society. As a photographer working in Boston in the 1970s, she come to prominence with her first exhibition on gay and transgender people in the city, in 1978. This was a springboard for her to move to New York City and to capture the energy and ethos of the new-wave youth culture that was a huge movement of the time. Her work has at times courted controversy – her depiction of heroin addicts seems to show it as a romantic pastime rather than a damaging drug addiction.
