Close Looking: The Artist Initiative with Vija Celmins

SFMOMA curators and conservators discuss the importance of close looking in the work of Vija Celmins.

Research for Vija Celmins: To Fix the Image in Memory was supported in part by SFMOMA’s Artist Initiative, which is generously funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
