Bringing together more than 80 pictures taken by American photographers from the 19th century to the present day, (Un)expected Families explores the definition of the American family. The works on view depict a wide range of relationships, including multiple generations, romantic unions, and alternative family structures. Using archival, vernacular, and fine art photographs, (Un)expected Families offers a variety of perspectives on the American family.
The exhibition includes prominent artists such as Dorothea Lange, Nan Goldin, Harry Callahan, and Abelardo Morell. The exhibition is on show until 24 June 2018 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
