  • leila fanner
    by the jealous curator on 3rd August 2020 at 8:00 am

    Sigh. This dreaminess is the work of South African artist Leila Fanner. Quite a few of these pieces are oil on canvas, but you might also find pastel, acrylic, and gouache in there too. Most of the paintings above are from Leila’s ongoing ‘Picnic’ series… ahhh, drinking tea in a South African, flower-filled garden? That sounds […]

  • aniela sobieski
    by the jealous curator on 31st July 2020 at 8:00 am

    Weird. Portraits. Women … these are a few of my favorite things! These paintings are the work of Minnesota based artist Aniela Sobieski. I was going to describe them as dreamy, but depending on how you feel about birds on your face, some of them might be bordering on nightmarish. Anywho, you can find a […]

    by the jealous curator on 29th July 2020 at 8:00 am

    Soft, quiet, elegant… and a little bit sad? These dreamy pieces are the work of Netherlands based artist Tamara Jungnickel. I can’t find the ‘why’ behind these lovely faces, but I’m pretty sure they’re feeling all the feels. Behind that foggy pink, I think these ladies have some very deep thoughts, and a lot to […]

  • The Opening of the Art World: Online Exhibitions to see in August
    by Phin Jennings on 23rd July 2020 at 12:00 am

    In last month’s Curator at Large article I wondered whether galleries would continue with a hybrid online/physical existence after the end of lockdown. This month, my question has been answered. Galleries across the world have reopened with their maiden post-covid shows, and most have opted to continue their heightened online presence. […]

  • Magnus Gjoen: Reviving the Old to Make Way for the New
    by Rise Art on 22nd July 2020 at 12:00 am

Showing us that there is no finite ending to art, Magnus defies the rigid boundaries of time to rework the old and give meaning to the new. […]

  • Mark Chadwick Q&A
    by Rise Art on 15th July 2020 at 12:00 am

    A master of colour and machinery, Mark Chadwick is certainly a unique artist. Using a number of machine processes and natural forces such as gravity, he creates Abstract Paintings that are exploding with colour. In this way, he relinquishes some of his control as an artist, allowing chance to dictate the beautiful and intriguing forms that emerge on the canvas. We took a moment to catch up with Mark and find out some more about his work and where he finds inspiration. […]

  • “Losing Yourself to your Thoughts” a Q&A with Paul Brown
    by Rise Art on 14th July 2020 at 12:00 am

    We caught up with Rise Art abstract artist Paul Brown and talked about all things abstract art. The illustrator-turned-abstract-artist revealed to us how some of his biggest setbacks in life have led the way for moments of pure artistic inspiration and how “sometimes the smallest thing can set fireworks off”. From his greatest influences, to the catharsis that creating offers, Paul took us on a journey through his art and “the open-ended story of abstraction”. […]

  • Q&A with Barry Goodman
    by Rise Art on 14th July 2020 at 12:00 am

  • Status Report
    by Claudia La Rocco on 27th July 2020 at 6:45 pm

    “It’s good in a way. Peel back the band aid and look at the rot.” A friend wrote these words a few weeks ago as we were texting about our respective institutions’ self-inflicted public crises. They’ve been in my mind since, an important reminder that what’s new at SFMOMA (and myriad other organizations) is only […]

  • From the Editors
    by The Editors on 1st June 2020 at 4:54 pm

    Our summer magazine was scheduled to launch today, but business as usual feels hollow, given the pain and rage our communities are experiencing in the wake of yet more unjust killings of Black people. We offer this moment of publishing silence in mourning for those deaths and in solidarity with the protests spreading across the […]

  • Bodies in Between
    by Diana Cage on 28th May 2020 at 4:15 pm

    It’s a perfect, warm Saturday. I want to feel like a human being with other human beings so I walk up Lincoln Avenue past the enormous Oakland LDS temple, then farther up to Joaquin Miller park and its stone steps leading to the amphitheater, home of the Woodminster Musicals — “Oakland’s Broadway in the Redwoods” […]

  • My First Pandemic
    by Zoe Kat with Dorian Katz on 26th May 2020 at 5:40 pm

    As I watch my last clients leave, a few hours before the shelter-in-place rules officially go into effect, I wonder: When will I see my people again? When will it be safe to breathe the same air? During the first week, I draw vulva pictures in different styles and colors. If you draw with loving […]

  • Assembly Required
    by Megan Brian on 21st May 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Week one of shelter in place I sulked around my tiny apartment. Week two I turned to my favorite stress-relieving hobby: sewing. I made two quilt tops. Week three I started sewing masks. As SFMOMA’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, I often work on projects that either take years to come to fruition (opening a building) […]
