Here we talk to Gabor, a member of SFMOMA since 2007.

When and why did you join SFMOMA?

In 2007, I was working day and night at an early-stage start-up. I had visited SFMOMA a few times before and decided it was a great place to leave the office for a few minutes and decompress, so I walked up to the membership desk and signed up. Before the old building closed, not a month would go by without me coming to visit.

If you could hang a famous (or not so famous) work of art in your house, what would you choose?

What’s been one of your favorite exhibitions?

The 2006 exhibit for the 100-year anniversary of the 1906 earthquake was fantastic because it opened a window to the San Francisco of yesteryear. More recently, I loved the Dieter Rams exhibition in 2011, which showed the early steps toward today’s contemporary product design philosophy.

What are you looking forward to when we open on May 14, 2016?

Seeing the renderings of the new Snøhetta building become reality.
