“What I want to do with a painting is activate the viewer to form a relationship, so the painting almost hovers in front of itself between the viewer and the canvas.”—Charline von Heyl

It’s Wednesday afternoon, and even though we’re closed, sometimes you still need to look at a beautiful painting👆

Collaboration. Community. Performance.
.
Organized by @openspace_sfmoma, Limited Edition is a series of events starting Jan 11 that will celebrate distinct voices in the local + national performance scene. Inspired in part by Robert Rauschenberg: #ErasingtheRules, the winter 2018 program takes a thematic look at artistic lineage, exploring connections in contemporary performance.
.
In addition to live programs presented at SFMOMA and sister institutions @counterpulse, @odcsf, @thelabsf, and @zspace_theatre, keep an eye out on Open Space for newly commissioned texts investigating issues of legacy, appropriation, and ownership in performance art.

“I have seen it and believe it is a really great work – technically beyond anything Rivera had previously done…. In intensity of symbolic images, complexity and depth of thought he is of course here going into something much more profound than anything he has previously attempted.”—Dr. Grace McCann Morley, founding director, SFMOMA in a letter to Art Digest, 1940
.
Just announced: we’re partnering with the City College of San Francisco (@officialccsf) to display Diego Rivera’s historic mural, Pan American Unity, as the cornerstone of a major exhibition of the artist’s work in 2020! The mural—one of the most important works of public art in San Francisco—will be on view in the museum’s free, unticketed space near our Howard St. entrance.
