Museums

11/16-3/22 - Curious & Wonderful: Selections from the Achenbach Vault - Of the treasures in the Museums’ 115,000 works on paper, many have never been on exhibition. Drawn mainly from the collection of artist-illustrated books, this installation in the Logan Gallery is a sampling of intriguing objects chosen by Debra Evans, the Fine Arts Museums’ head of paper conservation, who has cared for these objects for nearly four decades.

Asian Art Museum: BART from Millbrae station to Civic Center station. Walk 2 minutes to 200 Larkin St San Francisco.

2/15-5/25 - Dawoud Bey: An American Project - Since the beginning of his career, Dawoud Bey (American, born 1953) has used his camera to depict communities and histories that have largely remained underrepresented or even unseen. This full-scale retrospective highlights the artist’s commitment over the course of his four-decade career to portraying the black subject and African-American history in a manner that is at once direct and poetic, and immediate and symbolic. The exhibition includes his tender and perceptive early portraits of Harlem residents, large-scale color Polaroids, and a series of collaborative word and image portraits of high school students, among others. SF MOMA: BART from the Millbrae station to Powell St station. Walk 6 minutes to 151 3rd St San Francisco.
