With Its New Building, SFMOMA Cements a Place on the World Stage

SFMOMA has just scored a trifecta – a new building, the loan of a major private collection and a new capital fund. The building – “a triumph” – is graceful, functional and the largest contemporary art museum in the US. The art – reportedly worth $1bn – is ”an intensely (almost hilariously) blue-chip selection of work—big money, male, and white, in other words”. An excellent 3D graphic on the building is here.
