DESCRIPTION

One of the first U.S. museums to embrace time-based media artworks, SFMOMA boasts a dynamic collection that spans the history of the genre. This exhibition brings together a number of pioneering works created in the 1970s — a particularly rich period in the evolution of experimental media — drawn primarily from the museum’s holdings. Encompassing video, slide-projection, and film installations by Vito Acconci, Dara Birnbaum, Peter Campus, Dan Graham, Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson, Joan Jonas, Dennis Oppenheim, Richard Serra, and Katharina Sieverding, the selection on view emphasizes the artists' shared interest in collaboration. The first major showcase of SFMOMA's media arts collection in the museum's Mario Botta-designed building, the presentation offers visitors a rare glimpse of 20th-century masterpieces by some of the most influential artists of our time.
