Changing three times a year, New Work promises to engage audiences with the most innovative expressions of contemporary art. The first exhibition reintroducing the series features work by two young artists from Los Angeles: Evan Holloway and Dave Muller. Holloway's sculpture Map, 2003, made of painted tree branches unnaturally joined at right angles, is a meditation on nature and culture executed with equal parts formal rigor and playful humor. Muller, a Bay Area native, has created a site-specific drawing installation depicting the San Francisco skyline, a portrait of a city filtered through memory and the politics of place.
The New Work series is generously supported by Collectors Forum, an auxiliary of SFMOMA and the founding patron of the series. Major funding is also provided by Mimi and Peter Haas, Nancy and Steven Oliver, Robin Wright, and the Betlach Family Foundation.
