The current installation of Picturing Modernity highlights photographs amassed during Coke's eight-year tenure as SFMOMA's director of photography (1979–87). Garcia examines selected photographs illustrating Coke's interests in Surrealism, photographic experimentation, and the emerging artists of his day.
