What happens when a complicated artwork made of unconventional materials is put on view? Such a work, Atrabiliarios by Colombian artist Doris Salcedo, was recently installed on the Museum's second floor. Barger presents a case study of the work's extensive preparation, which took two full weeks and involved a team of SFMOMA staff members as well as the artist and her assistants.
