Robert Frank in America
Through January 5, 2015
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.

Sympathy for the Devil: Satan, Sin, and the Underworld
Through December 1
As Jackson Pollock’s important painting Lucifer comes to Stanford’s Anderson Collection, this exhibition explores the visual history of the devil and his realm from the 16th to the 20th century. More than 40 paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings reveal how the devil evolved from the bestial adversary of Christ to a rebellious, romantic hero and shrewd villain. Read more
