Larry Sultan: Here and Home

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

15 Apr - 23 Jul 2017

This major retrospective examines the work and career of Larry Sultan (1946–2009), an internationally renowned photographer with deep ties to the Bay Area as both an artist and an educator. Sultan’s often intensely personal images — many drawn from his own family’s history — blend documentary and staged elements in their explorations of storytelling, family, and domesticity. The exhibition explores the artist’s 35-year career through more than 200 photographs, a billboard created with conceptual artist and frequent collaborator Mike Mandel, a film, and Study Hall — a room offering a unique glimpse into Sultan’s exploratory process. Find out more about the Larry Sultan exhibition from SFMOMA’s website.
