SFO Museum, San Francisco International Airport, Exhibits “Philip Hyde: Mountains And Deserts”
On recommendation by gallerist and museum exhibition installer Stefan Kirkeby, Ramekon O’Arwisters, curator of exhibitions at the SFO Museum, San Francisco International Airport, invited me to help him curate an exhibition of photographs by my father, American wilderness photographer Philip Hyde. The SFO Museum is the only accredited museum in an airport. The museum puts on over 40 shows a year in the four airport terminals at SFO.
Like Kirkeby’s gallery Smith Andersen North, the SFO Museum has also already shown the work of a few other Golden Decade photographers including William Heick, Benjamen Chinn, Pirkle Jones, and Stan Zrnich. For more information about the Golden Decade read the blog post, “The Golden Decade: Photography At The California School Of Fine Arts.”
The Philip Hyde show includes a mixture of original darkroom vintage silver gelatin prints and authorized archival chromogenic prints for a total of 12 matted and framed prints, all 16 X 20 in size. Besides the Golden Decade photographers, the SFO Museum has exhibit some of the biggest names in fine art photography such as Edward S. Curtis, Linda Connor, Michael Kenna, Fred Lyon, Russell Lee, Fan Ho, Sean McFarland, Art Rogers, Barbara Morgan, John Sexton, Chris McCaw, Imogen Cunningham, Wynn Bullock, Olivia Parker and others.
