Richard Serra’s Sequence Returns

February 6, 2019 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Sometimes a work of art leaves both metaphorical and physical marks, causing us to consider the physical space it occupied, as well as its impact, long after it’s gone. Such is the case with Richard Serra’s massive steel sculpture Sequence (2006), one of the distinguished artist’s greatest achievements. On loan and housed from 2011 to 2015 outdoors, near the Cantor’s North Lawn, Sequence literally left behind its footprint, reminding visitors where all 235 tons of it once stood. And now, after being indoors at SFMOMA for the past several years, Sequence is returning to the Cantor…

Josiah McElheny: Island Universe

February 23, 2019 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Bringing artist Josiah McElheny’s Island Universe to the Cantor is a rare opportunity to examine both cutting-edge art and physics. The monumental installation of five hanging chandeliers is a visual response to recent theories of the multiverse, an elaboration of the Big Bang theory. The installation is both visually stunning and carefully constructed according to measurements that map the history of time.

STRAY: A GRAPHIC TONE

February 23, 2019 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Artist Shannon Ebner’s work is part of an ongoing, multimedia, and genre-defying project that began in 2016. Comprised of audio recordings, photographs, and literary components, Ebner’s STRAY investigates the ways in which objects and language can shift away from their intended uses, creating new meanings in the process. Through examining these limits, she explores the role of the artist in the act of creation. IMAGE: Shannon Ebner (U.S.A. b. 1971), SIGNAL ESCAPES, 2017.
