Special Event

Study Hall: A Day at the Races

Friday, May 5, 2017

11 a.m.

Celebrate the life and work of Larry Sultan during this special event led by students from the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) and California College of the Arts (CCA). Throughout the spring, students from SFAI and CCA are collaborating with SFMOMA on a series of investigations inspired by Sultan’s practice, culminating in this experimental event at the museum.

Don’t miss the sole California appearance of the amazingly heavy Fully Automatic Exercise Notebook Machine PH 370-316. Company brass and factory-line staff will be on-hand for one afternoon only to demonstrate the latest technological developments in our fabled EXERCISE series. Initially developed by a motley crew of young scientists in a horse track grandstand by the freeway, this incredible machine continues to conquer the museum world, one White Box at a time. We invite the sophisticated Bay Area public to engage directly with our power-patented, twenty-five-step book creating/destroying monstrosity and to heartily adopt our philosophy/motto: “Arrive perplexed. Depart with art.”
