SFMoMA Museum of Modern Art

Paul Klee and Rex Ray

20 May - 09 Oct 2017

Paul Klee, Fragmente (Fragments), 1937
collection SFMOMA, gift of Wilbur D. May
20 May – 9 October 2017

This intimate exhibition places artworks by Swiss-born modernist Paul Klee (1879–1940) alongside dazzling paintings by San Francisco artist and designer Rex Ray (1956–2015). Although separated by both time and place, their works share stunning formal similarities, including an exploration of geometric forms, the use of vibrant color, and playful, organic designs. Among other works, the exhibition features a rarely exhibited, intimate pastel watercolor by Klee from 1917 and an eye-popping collage by Ray from 1999.
