Nan Goldin is a largely successful artist to say the least. Her photographs have been the subject of two major museum retrospectives. She received the Hasselblad Foundation International Award in 2007, and the list goes on. Scopophilia, her current show in New York, will be on view at Matthew Marks Gallery through December 23rd.

From the press release:

"Scopophilia, which consists of over 400 photographs culled from Goldin’s career, pairs her own autobiographical images with new photographs of paintings and sculpture from the Louvre’s collection. Organized around themes of love and desire, Scopophilia, which means “the love of looking,” reflects on Goldin’s intensely personal photographs, as well as the unique permission given to the artist to photograph freely throughout the Louvre Museum. Of this project, Goldin explains, “Desire awoken by images is the project’s true starting point. It is about the idea of taking a picture of a sculpture or a painting in an attempt to bring it to life.'"
