For the first time in the history of SFMOMA's biennial award program honoring Bay Area artists, the museum has commissioned the four recipients of the 2012 SECA Art Award to create work outside the traditional gallery context. Their site-responsive projects — ranging from drawing to performance, sound, video, and sculpture — will appear in the following locations: Zarouhie Abdalian in downtown Oakland; Josh Faught at the Neptune Society Columbarium in San Francisco; Jonn Herschend on this website; and David Wilson in front of the museum's Third Street building, leading to various sites throughout the city. Documentation of the projects will be featured on this website and in the accompanying exhibition catalogue.
