It’s that time again for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). The museum currently going through a renovation, is set to host their biennial SECA Art Award, and is honoring four of its 2012 recipients in projects throughout websites and sites in San Francisco and Oakland. These works ranges from drawing to performance.
The first recipient featured in SECA project is Zarouhie Abalian, who had created a sound installation, that consist of brass bells programmed to simultaneously ring for several minutes each day from the rooftops at the Frank H. Ogawa Plaza at 14th and Broadway in Oakland. Designated times will vary from day to day, so it is encouraged to check back for schedule updates. Next is Josh Faught, whose constellation of hand-woven sculptures responding to the architecture of nondenominational repository for cremation urns, are shown at San Francisco’s Neptune Society Columbarium.
The work of John Herschend was shot on location at SFMOMA, and it is a short film on the museum’s temporary building closure, revealing it to the point of departure for behind-the-scenes look at the art and office relocations, and exploring narratives transition. The film is expected to premiere on SFMOMA website at www.sfmoma.org/stories. And finally, there’s David Wilson, who work is a series of intimately composed sites at six outdoor locations throughout San Francisco (hand-drawn maps complete with walking and public transportation instructions, will be available at the trailhead in front of the closed SFMOMA building). The project is a work in progress, as it will develop during the duration of the exhibition’s course.
And as for the exhibition, it begins this Saturday, and runs until November 17th. Log on to www.sfmoma.org for schedule updates and further information.
