Like many museums that emerged during the first part of the 20th century, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's original mission was to collect, research and buy the established aesthetic creations of the time. Consequently today they have one of the largest art collections of modern art in the United States with works such as Henri Matisse's 'Femme au Chapeau' (1905), sculptures by Louise Bourgeois, Marcel Duchamp or Constantin Brancusiand, or works by Willem de Kooning, André Derain and Eugène Atget. More recently, however, with post-modernism's critiques, the gallery has started to engage and inspire a diverse range of audiences by pursuing an innovative program of exhibitions, education, publications and collecting policies. International in scope, it has recently curated shows on Matthew Barney, on new architectural materials and designs, or on emerging Bangalore sculpture Ranjani Shettar. Finally, along with the Tate, the MoMA and the New Art Trust, the SFMOMA is an active member of Matters in Media Art, an international consortium dedicated to establishing best-practice guidelines for the care, installation, and preservation of time-based media works.
The museum is an established institution that has played a key role in the Western visual culture scene ever since its opening, which guarantees a good time for both art fanatics craving innovative displays and works, and those who are less so but that like pretty things.(read less)
