Matt Mullican: Between Sign and Subject
Now on - Jan 26, 2020

Adding order to the world is no easy feat, but Matt Mullican has a system and you can see it at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The five orders of Mullican's own cosmology tin each have their own color: green for the material world, blue for everyday life, yellow for culture and science, black and white for language, and red for subjective experiences.

The artist's quest for order doesn't stop there though. Bulletin boards made up of sketches of household objects, comics, and even charts add another glimpse into his yearning to bring understanding to the chaos of life.

Lisa Reihana: in Pursuit of Venus [infected]
Now on - Jan 5, 2020

The dominant narrative of colonization is European, and with a title like Les Sauvages de la Mer Pacifique, it's understandable why New Zealand artist Lisa Reihana has added her own interpretation to the 19th-century piece.

Reihana's video work in Pursuit of Venus [infected] is a digital scroll that takes up the entire upstairs space at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The work, as impressive in scale (it's 68-foot-wide, 10-foot tall, and an hour-long) as in scope, moves through 80 live-action vignettes featuring actors, and ultimately leads to the violent death of Captain James Cook. A soundscape composed of Pacific languages accompanies the video, as do engravings of scenes from Cook's voyages.

If you're seeking inspiration for your own creative endeavors, this awesome institution in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park makes for a dreamy venture into the world of art.

See a number of jaw-dropping collections spanning a range of American paintings, American sculpture, and decorative arts.

Along with regularly changing temporary exhibitions you'll be awed by permanent art collections from Africa, and wowed by works from Oceania and the Americas.

The textile arts exhibition shows the way cloth, clothing, and patterns reflect an active and fascinating conversation among cultures and time periods.

There are regular free guided tours and tickets to the de Young include same-day general admission to the Legion of Honor.
