Say you had a guest list with Frida Kahlo, the Virgin of Guadalupe, Edward Weston, Ernest Shackleton, Frank Lloyd Wright, Helena Modjeska, Imogen Cunningham and Empress Dowager Cixi. If you did, wouldn’t you make sure you went to that party? That’s a list of just some of the exhibitions this year. (We left out the Ghana movie posters because, as cool as they are, they aren’t people. Duh.)
