Comprised of contemporary art acquired through SFMOMA’s Campaign for Art, this exhibition highlights works in a variety of mediums that reflect the diversity of art being made since 1980. The Campaign for Art: Contemporary includes key figures that emerged in New York, such as Robert Gober, Jeff Koons, and Sherrie Levine; important California artists, such as Mark Bradford, Vincent Fecteau, and Charles Ray; and international figures, such as Doris Salcedo, Thomas Schütte, Luc Tuymans, and Ai Weiwei. The exhibition also includes an installation by Matthew Barney; animations by Jim Campbell, John Gerrard, and Takeshi Murata; and video works by Rivane Neuenschwander and Cao Guimarães, and Nicole Miller; as well as contemporary photography, including a large-scale work by Jeff Wall and a series by Cindy Sherman. This presentation serves not only as a celebration of works new to the museum’s collection, but also as an introduction to the extraordinary creativity of today’s art.
