See 400 intimate Nan Goldin autobiographical portraits of friends stripped raw in decadent dismay — the ones she promised to never photograph again – remixed with her exclusive shots from the Louvre in the “Scopophilia” slide installation making its NYC debut at the at Matthew Marks Gallery.

Time to bring them together and bring them to life. “Scopophilia,” Nan Goldin, Oct 29 – Dec 23, Matthew Marks Gallery, NYC
