Selected Histories: 20th-Century Art from the SFMOMA Collection

February 25, 2011 - June 02, 2013

This installation of works from SFMOMA's painting and sculpture collection is conceived as a series of chapters that illuminate key moments and themes in the art of the 20th century. By presenting a range of conversations among varied works, the exhibition explores the many narratives the museum's collection can suggest about the history of modern art.
