sfmoma "The storm is in the mind. The lightning is in the room. It is the terrible uncertainty: the imperceptible, the sublime, the invisible made physical…"—Doug Hall ️We’re at #SFAI previewing #DougHallSF—and that wicked #TeslaCoil. Open to the public this Saturday! 2d

sfmoma A still from our next #SFMOMAgo show—"Doug Hall: The Terrible Uncertainty of the Thing Described"—opening this Saturday at #SFAI! You'll see some fires, tornadoes, a #hellastorm or two, some LIGHTNING. ️ When you go, ask yourself (or your gallery buddy): what’s the artist saying about the "natural" world and the one we call "manmade"? #DougHallSF 5d

sfmoma Is this an art installation on the side of our building?! Or is that the building itself?! ️The rippled side was designed to resemble the San Francisco Bay, and now we see that the reflective side mirrors the sky! [Photo of the ‪#FutureSFMOMA‬ by @wirechairs.] 1w

sfmoma A calming shade of celadon? Spring green with fewer blues? Viridian, hunter, jade, or kelly? What's your favorite green? Some #ShadesOfGreen inspiration from the #SFMOMACollection: [#AnneAppleby, "Japanese Maple II," (2004)] 2w

sfmoma Spirits surge on #Fridaythe13th! A window into a strange period of American and European history, spirit photography is by turns spooky, bizarre, beautiful, and hilarious. A visual record of flimflams and cons— and proof that photo editing is almost as old as photography itself. [Image from the #SFMOMACollection: Dr. William J. Pierce, "Spirit Photographs" (1903)] 2w

sfmoma Installing #RichardSerra's "Sequence" in our expanded building—while construction continues—took 12 flatbed trucks and a lot of hoisting and lowering, grinding and welding over the course of a few days. Watch it take form at sfmoma.me/serrasequence. #SerraMovesIn 3w

sfmoma Today we celebrate Piet Mondrian, born on this day in 1872! #Mondrian originally painted landscapes, but stripped his work down after discovering a certain kind of mysticism that preached that nature was governed by a divine order. So Mondrian reduced the landscapes to the most basic components: those famous lines and primary colors of the #DeStijl movement! [Image from the #SFMOMACollection: #PietMondrian, "Composition (no. III) blanc-jaune / Composition with Red, Yellow, and Blue" (1935/1942)] 3w

sfmoma Camera happy! No story of California art would be complete without looking at Bay Area and Western photography. When we reopen in 2016, the John and Lisa S. Pritzker Center for Photography at SFMOMA will be the LARGEST museum space in the country dedicated to photography. #CaliforniaLove‬ [Shot of the ‪#FutureSFMOMA‬ from last month, when we actually had a couple days of rain in the city.

sfmoma Hometown pride! When we reopen in 2016, we will have dedicated spaces to art from California, with an eye on Bay Area art from the '50s to today. (Like: Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Arneson, Joan Brown and more!) ‪#CalifornaLove! [View of #FutureSFMOMA as seen from our neighbor, @jewseum's, yard / photo by @pixelstud] 4w

sfmoma Richard Serra's "Sequence" is the first artwork to move into the Snøhetta-designed wing of our rapidly expanding building, but did you know that there are TWO artworks that remain in the original Botta building while construction continues? Any guesses as to what they are?

  •   sfmoma @seogju That is a great guess! The design + specs of the Wall Drawings are in SFMOMA's collection, so they may be reinstalled in the future but those aren't the two. 1mon
  •   sfmoma @jonibinder That's one. While the building's under construction, that piece stays put, protected behind a wall. 1mon
  •   roodad The Matthew Barney Wall Drawing? 1mon
  •   alpulabri Like a oil tanker 1mon
  •   rulegallery 1mon
  •   sfmoma @roodad Yep! That is indeed the other one. While the building's under construction, Matthew Barney's "Drawing Restraint 14" remains covered in the oculus. 1mon
  •   celizabethforte Sequence!!!! 4w
  •   juliebabindesign @orochristo omg I love Richard Serra! Can't wait to see this! 3w
