ONGOING EXHIBITION
==================

SFMOMA's world-renowned photography collection includes pictures from the mid-1800s to the present. The current presentation includes a special selection of works by Bay Area photographer and San Francisco State University professor John Gutmann (1905-1998) on the centennial of his birth. A German-born artist who fled the Nazi regime for the United States in 1933, Gutmann intended his photographs as documents of the exotic American culture he saw around him, but they reflect his surrealist tendencies and poetic leanings, as well. Also on view are more than 50 recent acquisitions, pictures that have never been shown at SFMOMA.

ONGOING EXHIBITION
==================

Matisse and Beyond: The Painting and Sculpture Collection Representing movements ranging from Fauvism and Cubism to Pop art and Minimalism, SFMOMA's modern art holdings include paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by some of the 20th century's most celebrated artists. The selection currently on view features works by Josef Albers, Vija Celmins, Bruce Conner, Marcel Duchamp, Philip Guston, Frida Kahlo, Yves Klein, Joan Mitchell, Piet Mondrian, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Diego Rivera, Charles Sheeler, and Wayne Thiebaud.

ONGOING EXHIBITION
==================

Between Art and Life: The Contemporary Painting and Sculpture Collection In 1959 Robert Rauschenberg said, "Painting relates to both art and life. Neither can be made. (I try to act in that gap between the two.)" This presentation of the SFMOMA collection is organized around this philosophy. With works from the last five decades, the exhibition emphasizes special concentrations within SFMOMA's contemporary holdings and includes works by Olafur Eliasson, Jenny Holzer, Jeff Koons, Julie Mehretu, Marilyn Minter, Chris Ofili, Robert Rauschenberg, Gerhard Richter, Doris Salcedo, Rachel Whiteread, and Christopher Wool. As part of the exhibition, an audio/video walk by artist Janet Cardiff is also available at the information desk in the Haas Atrium.

ONGOING EXHIBITION
==================

The Art of Design: The Architecture and Design Collection SFMOMA's growing architecture and design collection focuses on the areas of architecture, industrial design, and graphic design and features both historical and contemporary works. This broad survey ranges from well-known classics to works by emerging designers, highlighting the collection's strengths in experimental architecture, digital design, and Bay Area innovation. A selection of mid-century modern furnishings designed by Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, and Isamu Noguchi for American furniture manufacturer Herman Miller complements the exhibition Alexander Girard: Vibrant Modern.

ONGOING EXHIBITION
==================

Picturing Modernity: The Photography Collection The exhibition will be temporarily closed November 13 to 17, with a new rotation of works opening November 18. SFMOMA's world-renowned photography collection includes pictures from the mid-1800s to the present that capture key moments in the development of the medium and reflect a wide range of practices. Among the highlights of the new installation are a selection of European modernist photographs from the 1920s and 1930s from the Prentice and Paul Sack Photographic Trust and several works by contemporary photographers such as Mitch Epstein.
