Anthony Hernandez at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, September 24, 2016 – January 1, 2017
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) presents the first retrospective to honor the more than 45-year career of the major American photographer Anthony Hernandez (b. 1947, Los Angeles). Featuring approximately 160 photographs, many of which have never before been seen or published, Anthony Hernandez is the inaugural special exhibition in the museum’s new Pritzker Center for Photography. The exhibition will present the full scope of Hernandez’s long and prolific career, celebrating the artist’s unique brand of street photography and how it has changed and developed over time.
“Hernandez’s photographs have long been admired by curators, collectors and other photographers,” said Erin O’Toole, curator of the exhibition and Baker Street Foundation Associate Curator of Photography at SFMOMA. “SFMOMA is thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce his incredible body of work to a broader audience.”
