The doors of the SFMOMA are shuttered during the current expansion, but the artwork refuses to be confined and is “On the Go,” with dynamic partnerships at local venues. Say Gorgeous aloud, think about what the word elicits, and experience the works grouped with collections from the Asian Art Museum. The exhibition opens on June 20, 2014, and runs through September 14, 2014.

Last week, we attended the preview of the SFMOMA's newest exhibition, Field Conditions, an exhibit 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." One of the standout installations was the 50/50 Floor by Tauba Auerbach paired with Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's Homographies (2006) made for quite the visual and sensory experience.

Last week, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art opened the new mural installation, Weirded Out, created site-specifically by Amsterdam artist, Parra. We caught up with Parra as the artist was finishing up the mural that stands on the museum's second landing, and discussed how his work has evolved since his March 2008 cover, working in black and white, and his first visit to SF.

Amsterdam-based artist Parra is working day and night on a mural installation at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, set to be properly unveiled next Saturday, March 31. We went to check up on the progress and preview the gigantic wall and catch up with a former Juxtapoz cover artist.

One of our favorite exhibitions that the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art holds is the SECA (Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art) Awards, focusing and honoring Bay Area artists whose innovative works, while diverse in form and subject matter, reflect overlapping affinities. This year, SECA is celebrating its 50th anniversary in the Bay Area art scene with both the 2010 SECA Awards exhibition and Fifty Years of Bay Area Art retrospective.

No sparkling sunrises in sight, the first Francesca Woodman retrospective had to unfold in the Fall when the haunting is subtle but pervasive. Slowly crumbling walls like falling leaves are not swept away, but form the soil from which many of her subjects take root Swathed in sepia, the black and white prints – save the large scale blueprints at the end of the exhibit - are surprisingly small, inviting inspection and introspection.

We were lucky enough to attend the preview of Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art this past week. Perhaps even more importantly, Mr. Serra, the San Francisco native, was in attendance at the preview, providing an illuminating context about his works and his origins in sculpture and drawing.

As we mentioned on the site the other day, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art opened a new exhibition this weekend, Images in Dialogue: Paul Klee and Andrew Schoultz. We have a photo essay by photographer Aeschleah DeMartino, following SF-based Schoultz around for a few days prior to the SFMoMA opening.
