(Excerpt from ' SFMOMA Brings Leading Contemporary Artists to Silicon Valley with Project Los Altos' posted on SFMOMA website. Found here www.sfmoma.org/about/press/press_news/releases/960)
Through Project Los Altos, an event dispersed over many venues, SFMOMA plans to use existing works on loan and new commissions to probe the culture of Silicon Valley as it exists in reality and in public imagination.
From November 9, 2013 through March 2, 2014, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will present Project Los Altos: SFMOMA in Silicon Valley, an exhibition sited throughout the downtown commercial core of Los Altos, a town located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Through the lens of national and international artists, this exhibition will explore the history and culture of this innovative region, the community of Los Altos and its surrounding areas, and the distinctive character of each artwork’s setting. Project Los Altoswill be on view at indoor and outdoor locations—ranging from commercial spaces to a public intersection—and include existing artworks as well as newly commissioned, site-responsive projects. Featured artists include Jeremy Blake, Spencer Finch, Charles Garoian, Christian Jankowski, Chris Johanson, Mike Mills, Kateřina Šedá, Alec Soth, and Jessica Stockholder.
