Contemporary Art Week!

Kehinde Wiley

Los Angeles native and New York-based visual artist Kehinde Wiley has firmly situated himself within art history’s portrait painting tradition. As a contemporary descendent of a long line of portraitists—including Reynolds, Gainsborough, Titian, Ingres, and others—Wiley engages the signs and visual rhetoric of the heroic, powerful, majestic, and sublime in his representation of urban black and brown men found throughout the world.

By applying the visual vocabulary and conventions of glorification, wealth, prestige, and history to subject matter drawn from the urban fabric, Wiley makes his subjects and their stylistic references juxtaposed inversions of each other, forcing ambiguity and provocative perplexity to pervade his imagery. Wiley’s larger-than-life figures disturb and interrupt tropes of portrait painting, often blurring the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation and the critical portrayal of masculinity and physicality as it pertains to the view of black and brown young men.

Why would a museum collect this simple drawing? 

The drawing is just one of many pages in Edgar Degas’ personal sketchbook from 1877. More on the sketchbook and the goodies inside: here.

Nice to see I’m not the only one who has confusing quick sketches.

MUSEUM NEWS: Introducing The Artist Initiative!

SFMOMA is thrilled to announce The Artist Initiative, a long-term project dedicated to collaborating with living artists in order to put their voices at the center of our evolving approach to art conservation and collection research. Supported by a $1.75 million grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, one of the main objectives of The Artist Initiative is to share new research with the museum community, and surface findings for the public through web publishing and enriched in-gallery experiences.

“Traditionally thought of as a solitary pursuit in backrooms of museums, art conservation is rapidly emerging as a collaborative and relationship-based practice in the museum of the 21st century,” said Jill Sterrett, director of collections and conservation at SFMOMA. ”As art making has grown from an individual endeavor to comprise more collaborative or shared experiences, so too has conservation, engaging many disciplines within the museum. An ever-growing array of unorthodox artist materials—ranging from food to the internet—adds to the demand for a corollary shift in thinking from museums.” 

WHAT THIS MEANS: We’ll now be working with artists directly to preserve their works. We’ll then share our findings with the museum community, and you!

The Artist Initiative will begin by diving into five areas of SFMOMA’s collection: Photography in the 1970s, The Art of Ellsworth Kelly, Up Close with Vija Celmins, Julia Scher’s Predictive Engineering, and Bay Area High-Tech Design. READ MORE→
