SFMOMA's Live Art series has transformed the nature of the museum's public programming, embracing the event-driven, performance-based aspect of much contemporary art. Encompassing a broad spectrum of programming — from intimate collaborations to provocative spectacles — Live Art supports rich, varied, and direct interactions among artists, artworks, and communities and activates the museum's spaces in innovative ways. Smigiel discusses past projects and the upcoming Live Art event with New Humans.
