Join art muse and artist Regina Mamou at MOCA for a close look at legendary photographers Brassaï, Diane Arbus, and Nan Goldin. Real Worlds presents three bodies of work: 1930s Paris at night through the lens of Brassaï, 1960s New York in the unsettling portraits of Arbus, and an intimate, visceral view of the life of Goldin and her friends from the 1970s and 80s. Regina explores the exhibition from the unique perspective of a photographer.
