Gagosian Rome is pleased to present Nan Goldin’s Scopophilia. This is the renowned photographer’s first major exhibition in Rome.
The Greek term scopophilia literally means “love of looking,” but also refers to the erotic pleasure derived from gazing at images of the body. Nan Goldin’s Scopophilia is both a slide-show and an ongoing photographic series, begun in 2010 when she was given private access to the Louvre Museum every Tuesday. During these privileged sojourns, she wandered and photographed freely throughout the museum’s renowned collections of painting and sculpture.
