Haute Event: SFMOMA Opening Reception for “Exposed” and “Cartier-Bresson”

On Oct. 27, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art hosted an opening party for two of its new photography exhibitions. The first, Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance, and the Camera Since 1870, which was curated by Sandra Phillips will be on display at the museum through April 17, 2011; The second is entitled, Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century, which will be on display through Jan. 30, 2011.

Peter Galassi, from New York MoMA’s and the Chief Curator of Cartier-Bresson said, “between SFMOMA’s current display plus the stellar photography collection of Bob Fisher now on view at Pier 24, one would be hard-pressed to find another city anywhere in the world with comparable offerings on view.”

Attendees of the event included a who’s-who of the San Francisco art world including gallerist Jeffrey Fraenkel, Martine Franck, president of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, Pier 24’s Abner Nolan, SFMOMA director Neal Benezra, SFMOMA Media Arts Curator Rudolf Frieling, SFMOMA Board President Bob Fisher, and more.
