A Weekend of Art in San Francisco

I recently spent a weekend in San Francisco, exploring my favorite museums and galleries. It’s such a beautiful city and it is expanding culturally in many exciting ways.

On view now, the spectacular exhibition “Don’t Be Shy, Don’t Hold Back: The Logan Collection at SFMOMA” features works by Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Chuck Close, Robert Indiana, and Ed Ruscha—and many similar works can be found here on Artsy. This exhibition of nearly 40 works from the 1960s to the 1990s celebrates the 15th anniversary of Vickie and Kent Logan’s gift of some 330 works of art from their collection.

I was also fortunate to see a glorious show titled “Unphotographable” at the Fraenkel Gallery. It features artists such as Gerhard Richter, Bruce Conner, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Alfred Stieglitz, Sophie Calle, and Tom Friedman.

The Paris-based collective’s exhibition, “Claire Fontaine: Redemptions,” at Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts—a small gallery with a big wallop—takes over the gallery in a HUGE way.
