Vincent Fecteau Selects from the Collection

July 25 - November 08, 2009

In a marked departure from past New Work shows, this exhibition presents drawings, paintings, and sculptures from the museum's collection selected by the San Francisco–based sculptor Vincent Fecteau. Over the last year, Fecteau has mined the thousands of objects in SFMOMA's holdings, gradually narrowing his selections down to approximately 25 works that have rarely, if ever, been on display at the museum. The resulting exhibition — composed entirely of undiscovered, idiosyncratic gems — is unlike any other in the history of the museum. Featured artists range from familiar names such as Judy Chicago, Max Ernst, and Jess to the lesser-known Richard Feralla, Charles Howard, and Dorothy Reid. SFMOMA also has commissioned Fecteau to create an artist's book in conjunction with the exhibition.
