Upcoming: Tauba Auerbach for “Field Conditions” @ SFMOMA

Starting on September 1st, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will be presenting an exhibition that “bends and blurs the boundaries between conceptual art and theoretical architecture, using the notion of the “field” to frame an investigation into the construction, representation, and experience of space.” Entitled Field Conditions, the showing features work from both contemporary artists and practicing architects, including Tauba Auerbach, Daniel Libeskind, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Sol LeWitt, Lebbeus Woods, and more. In particular for her fans out there, Auerbach is having her 50/50 […]

SFMOMA Expansion by snøhetta

Last year, we mentioned briefly that the SFMOMA was looking for an architect to design their expansion project. It looks like not only have they found the firm for the job, snøhetta, the museum is also well into their planning stages for the large adjacent exhibition and educational space with a roofline that will be sculpted to frame the skyline of the surrounding buildings. Check out the design concept in the video above as well as more images after the jump…

Signings: David Choe @ SFMOMA

Last week AM visited the SFMOMA to catch the signing of David Choe’s (featured) monograph  (previewed) from Chronicle Books. The crowd of fans waited patiently to get some face time with the accomplished artist. David, as usual, took his time greet his loyal Bay Area followers and for a lucky few, even created mini sketches in their books. Check it out after the jump.

Events: “Further” book signing at SFMoMA

This Thursday, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will host an exclusive signing event for the art book “Further,” featuring the work of Damon Soule, David Choong Lee, MARS-1, Nome Edonna, Oliver Vernon, Robert Hardgrave and Tomokazu Matsuyama. Most AM readers will recall the amazing “Further” group show at Joshua Liner Gallery at the beginning of the year (covered). If you are around the bay area, definitely take this opportunity to pick up this beautiful book and get it signed by all the artists. […]

Installation: Mike Shine @ SFMoMA

Following our studio visit with Mike Shine last week (here), AM headed down to San Francisco to check out the fruits of his recent labors for SFMoMA‘s 75th Anniversary. Much as flotsam will accumulate in the ocean, creating a massive and no longer disjointed whole, the Mike Shine Show was part Fastelavn carnival, part three penny opera and part interactive installation. With carnival games and creepy clowns, Shine’s latest experience successfully brought back the fun and wonder of art to both parents and children alike, […]

Installation: Barry McGee @ SFMoMA – A Closer Look

After visiting Mike Shine’s outdoor carnival for SFMoMA‘s 75th Anniversary, AM ducked inside to catch one last look at Barry McGee’s massive clustered installation (previewed).  Consisting of hundreds of drawings, personal pictures and patented patterns, McGee’s exhibit truly conveyed the multi-faceted breadth of his works.  Arranged in a seemingly haphazard, though obviously well thought out manner, Twist’s install was literally bulging at the seams, seemingly so that one would assume it was on the cusp of giving birth or expelling a whole new body of […]

Donald Fisher (1928 – September 27, 2009)

Having lived a full life we all would aspire to living, Donald Fisher passed away in San Francisco at the age of 81, after a battle with cancer.  Along with his wife, Doris, Fisher founded and built The Gap from a single store into a clothing empire.  He graduated in 1950 from UC Berkeley, where he was a star swimmer and water polo player.  Philanthropy was important to him and he was involved in the Bay Area United Way and founded the KIPP (Knowledge is […]
