Robert Frank in America
Opens September 10
This major exhibition of 130 photographs presents—for the very first time—Robert Frank’s extensive work from the 1950s. Drawn from the Cantor’s substantial collection and complemented by other key loans, the exhibition sheds new light on the making of The Americans and on this influential artist. Guest-curator Peter Galassi, former chief curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, highlights major themes—politics, race, religion, consumer culture, cars and the road—and elucidates the photographer’s formal strategies.

More than 40 paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings reveal how the devil evolved from the bestial adversary of Christ to a rebellious, romantic hero or shrewd villain. Read more
