Jux contributor Kristin Farr just produced a new video for KQED and SFMOMA that reflects on a golden age for contemporary art in San Francisco’s Mission District. Several influential artists who lived and worked in or near the Mission in the ’90s became internationally known, and many of our favorites have been featured in the pages of Juxtapoz.

The San Francisco Bay Area has been without its modern art institution for a couple of years now, as the physical space that is the SFMOMA has been closed for an addition to its existing building. The benefits of the closure has been spread out across various spaces around the SF area, whether at the Cantor at Stanford, the Wattis in SF, or even the Asian Art Museum here in the City as well. All the shows have been strong in their own way, but the newest SFMOMA On the Go exhibition, "Fertile Ground," brings together SFMOMA and the Oakland Museum of California for a theme that makes perfect: Art made in the SF Bay Area.

LA-based artists Chris Johanson and Johanna Jackson have collaborated on a series of ceramic pieces that you can see while you shop through June 26, 2014.
