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.

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.

Taura Auerbach is a young and successful San Francisco/New York-based artist, and also a Stanford graduate. And by successful we mean museum collections, one of the leading artists of her generation sort of successful. Auerbach's paintings create captivating textures on canvas, ie, flat canvases with these textures painted as an image.
