Ezra Stoller's Photography: A Retrospective
Much like his contemporary Balthazar Korab (whose work is featured in the current issue of Dwell), Ezra Stoller's iconic images of post-war America depict the evolution of the Modernist movement. From industrial and commercial spaces to landmark interiors, his extensive portfolio is reincarnated in a long-awaited new monograph, Ezra Stoller: Photographer (Yale University Press, 2012), written by Nina Rappaport and Erica Stoller. Stoller's camera captured some of the most significant Modernist buildings from the 1940s through the 1970s, and will be presented in a partner exhibition at Yossi Milo Gallery from January 24 to March 2, 2013.

From February 18 to May 20, 2012, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will present the exhibition Rineke Dijkstra, the artist's first midcareer retrospective in the United States. This is the most comprehensive museum exhibition to date of the artist's oeuvre, the first major Dijkstra exhibition organized by an American museum, and the first solo exhibition of her work in San Francisco. The exhibition features nearly 70 color photographs and five video installations, including two new video projections.
The exhibition, the first major retrospective of Bresson's work in the U.S. in more than 30 years, comprises 300 prints from 1929 to 1989, at least one fifth of them previously unknown to the public, and focuses on the most productive decades of the 1930s through the 1960s.

- The Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco, in honor of the 25th anniversary of Sister Corita Kent—a west coast Pop artist, teacher, and, yes, one-time Catholic nun—has…
- I've always been fascinated with instant cities, usually planless boomtowns based on a quick commercial strike or immediately evolved to absorb the overflow of some metropolis.
