SFMOMA Artcast April 2011

When did the museum become a marketplace? In this episode of SFMOMA Artcasts we hear from the artists and workers involved with Stephanie Syjuco's installation ShadowShop — an alternative store temporarily set up in one of SFMOMA's fifth-floor galleries. We also hear from the fiancé of the late contemporary designer Tobias Wong, Tim Dubitsky, who discusses references to love in Wong's work. Next we turn to photography: artist Michael Light describes the voyeuristic nature of his aerial shots, and artist and writer Rebecca Solnit discusses Eadweard Muybridge, the revolutionary nineteenth-century photographer who helped lay the groundwork for motion pictures.
