Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George @ the De Young Museum

Juxtapoz // Saturday, February 15, 2014
“I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things that I had no words for.” Georgia O’Keefe undersells herself. If you can tear your eyes away from the paintings, then just go to wallow in her marvelous quotes proclaimed on the walls of San Francisco’s de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park , like “When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that moment to someone else.”

David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition @ de Young, San Francisco

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
The entire experience of having David Hockney open a massive exhibition, A Bigger Exhibition, if you will, in San Francisco is that you learn just how relentless and consistent the famed British artist's work ethic really is. He is non-stop, constantly learning new tricks, creating more immersive works, challenging pre-conceived notions of landspace and portrait painting, whether through iPad, or just old-fashioned perspective paintings. Here is our article from the November 2013 print issue about A Bigger Exhibition... 

Richard Diebenkorn "The Berkeley Years" @ de Young, SF

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 27, 2013
Local Boy Makes Good! “I’m really a traditional painter, not avante garde at all. I wanted to follow a tradition and extend it.” And the San Francisco native’s own words start you off on what should be a languorous visit to familiar places like Chabot Valley in Richard Biebenkorn’s The Berkeley Years, now showing at San Francisco’s de Young Museum. But even more familiar and very compelling is a personal journey that can be experienced through this painter’s eyes. 

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier @ de Young, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
One of the best exhibitions we saw in 2011, perhaps over the past few years, was the exquisite Alexander McQueen knock-out fashion turned fine art visionary show at the MET in NYC (can you tell we liked it?). With this in mind, we were excited to see how The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk would play out at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. After our run through, this is another solid fashion to fine art display that we recommend if you travel to SF this summer.
