Get Some Fab: Family Pictures

The just-opened exhibit at the Guggenheim, neatly titled Family Pictures, twists the imagery and iconography of "family" like salt water taffy. Featuring photography and video works by 16 renowned artists (including Nan Goldin, Catherine Opie, and Robert Mapplethorpe), the true inspiration of these works is their power to recontextualize the most basic of human relationships. Whether you're close to your family or not, this is one of those must-see exhibits that New York so rarely gets. (The photograph at left is Isabella, by Loretta Lux.)
