Photography in Mexico
from the Collection of SFMOMA
April 16th - June 14th
This traveling exhibition of photographs from SFMOMA's collection reveals a distinctively rich and diverse tradition of photography in Mexico. It begins with works from the medium's first artistic flowering in the wake of the Mexican Revolution (1920-20) and goes on to explore the explosion of the illustrated press at midcentury; the documentary investigations of cultural traditions and urban poitics that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s; and more recent considerations of urban life and globalization.
Fortunes & Family is a special exhibition of photographs, paintings, artifacts and ephemera, exploring the story behind the founding of The Haggin Museum by two families over three generations. It is a tale of the financial successes rooted in the economic development of the West, the lifestyles made possible by such wealth and the legacy born of one couple’s willingness to share their fortune with the people of Stockton.
