Photo Diary: Rainy day at the SF MoMA

Kelsey beside a little Miro
It was tremendously rainy in San Francisco. We ducked into the MoMA. Kelsey immediately pointed out the Museum's awesome thematic placement of works. The collection highlights don't ever look to be on display in mass. It was especially refreshing to see some large scale Abstract Expressionists, often only one work per artist like Rothko juxtaposed with a Rauschenberg.

The best thing about the museum seemed to be it's great use of space: smart placement of art at the top of stairways or around curved walls in such a way to highlight the pieces strengths.

I surprised even myself and took a big interest in a Matthew Barney site specific piece permanently on display from the Drawing Restraint show.

Extraordinary caption to a work I can't remember
