Art of Northern California: Three Views

Exhibition Website

May 14 2016 - Jan 2017

Underscoring SFMOMA’s commitment to the art of California and the Bay Area specifically, the inaugural installation of the museum’s new California galleries feature local artists in three groupings:

1) artists associated with the University of California, Davis, including Robert Arneson, Wayne Thiebaud, and William T. Wiley; 

2) art by Joan Brown, Jess and Lee Mullican, emphasizing the personal, often spiritual, underpinnings of art produced in the region; and 

3) the Bay Area’s vibrant Conceptual art scene of the late 1960s and 1970s, explored through works by David Ireland, Lynn Hershman Leeson, and Tom Marioni, among others.
