Drawings from the Collection

Exhibition Website

Feb 11 2017 - May 14 2017

Showcasing works created between 1980 and the present day, this exhibition highlights contemporary drawings from SFMOMA’s collection and presents a variety of approaches to the medium. 

Bold works by artists including Joyce Pensato, Raymond Pettibon, and Gary Simmons critically mine forms of popular culture. Quiet compositions by Bay Area artists Rosana Castrillo Díaz, Nicole Phungrasamee Fein, and David Ireland, created with graphite and other spare materials, offer moments of meditative reprieve. Explorations of place and landscape are the focus of Tiffany Chung’s colorful mapping of data, and of compositions by D-L Alvarez and Robert Bechtle.
