Exhibitions
Louise Bourgeois Spiders
Now on - Jul 14, 2019

Louise Bourgeois created the first of these dark yet compelling spider sculptures in the mid-1990s, when she was in her 80s. See spiders in all shapes and sizes through Bourgeois' eyes; she saw them as both fierce and fragile, as protectors as well as predators. Do you agree? There's only one way to find out - be brave!

Wayne Thiebaud
Now on - Apr 28, 2019

Northern California–based artist Wayne Thiebaud first visited the SFMOMA in 1942, when he was just 22 years old, and he's contributed a lot to the museum ever since. Browse a selection of his own paintings and drawings spanning all 50 years of his career, then see a selection of other works he chose personally from the museum's vault.

Henri Matisse and Joan Miró, American painters George Ault and Georgia O'Keeffe, California peers Richard Diebenkorn and John McLaughlin, and more recent canvases by Katherine Porter and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye are all here.

Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World
Now on - Feb 24, 2019

Book-ended by the student protest movement and social unrest of Tiananmen Square in 1989 and the Beijing Olympics in 2008, this exhibition showcases works by over 60 artists and artists' groups chronicling the transformative social changes that precipitated the rise of China as a global power. Through a series of performances, paintings, photographs, installations, videos, and socially engaged projects, the exhibition questions consumerism, authoritarianism, and the rapid developments transforming Chinese society and China's role in the world.

A large collection of modern art that was well curated and explained so that novices can get a better understanding of it. It might also be helpful to have somewhere a chronological board pictorial display of the art movements somewhere to give one a thumbnail kind of view of the development of modern art to the present day.

It was a quick visit for me, but a very clean space with friendly helpful staff. I wanted to take photos and was kindly asked not to. It was a pleasant experience and I look forward to spending more time in the museum. Very easy to spend the day gazing and reflecting on the amazing exhibits.
