The More Things Change

November 20, 2010–November 6, 2011

The More Things Change draws from SFMOMA’s collection to present an extraordinary range of works made since 2000, offering a selective survey of the art of the last 10 years and a thematic and psychological portrait of the decade. Revealing the museum’s collection as a seismograph of shifts in contemporary culture, this continually evolving exhibition considers how the past persists in the present and how art engages with the world at large.

The More Things Change is organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Lead support is provided by Collectors Forum. Generous support is provided by Gina and Stuart Peterson.
