Two Mexican photographers, Daniela Rossell and Yvonne Venegas, have made significant strides in steering Mexican photography in a new direction - from focusing on poverty and indigenous communities into the secret world of the Mexican elite. Their work is now featured in a new exhibit, from March 10 through July 8, 2012, at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), called Photography in Mexico: Selected Works from the Collections of SFMOMA and Daniel Greenberg and Susan Steinhauser.
The Mondrian Cake.
Mondrian cake at the rooftop coffee bar of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The decorative dessert pays homage to Dutch painter Piet Mondrian by (sweetly) emulating his 1930, grid-based, abstract painting, Composition in Red, Blue, and Yellow with vanilla cake, red velvet cake, and chocolate ganache.
The Mondrian Cake sells for eight bucks a slice at the museum.
