Museum Time Capsule


A few photos from my trip to San Francisco a month ago. I’ve already posted reviews of Photography in Mexico and Mark Bradford at the Yerba Buena Center. Since I was carrying a film camera at the time, I’ve only just gotten around to scanning and posting things. I don’t have much to add to my comments on Bradford. I just felt like I needed a quick image to show how big the pieces are. As you can see above, they’re very big.

The other two images are from SFMoMA and cover installations I haven’t commented on before.


Jim Campbell’s Exploded Views. This one is neat. Not much to write about but worth seeing. It is interesting to compare to Leo Villareal and how the fact that Campbell uses concrete rather than abstract imagery. What’s especially neat about Campbell is how the images only pop from certain points of view.


I also got to see the installation of Parra’s Weirded Out. The photo doesn’t show how the outlines of the entire piece are already there, waiting to be filled in. I haven’t yet seen the finished version either. I do recommend watching the time-lapse video of it being installed.
