Where to Go and What to See

In other cities, the Ed Ruscha photography at The Art Institute of Chicago should be a much-talked about exhibition, since Ruscha is known for his paintings and his photos were long thought only study material, not art in and of themselves. I'd also like to highlight the work of Fiona Aboud at Benham Gallery in Seattle. The photos she's showing came from an on-parade portrait series the native Brazilian did in Rio, and their story is told in the upcoming travel issue of American Photo.
