Garry Winogrand   March 9 through June 2, 2013

The first retrospective in 25 years of work by artist Garry Winogrand (1928ˆ1984)˜the renowned photographer of New York City and of American life from the 1950s through the early 1980s˜will debut at SFMOMA before traveling internationally. Bringing together more than 300 of the artist’s most iconic images with a trove of unseen prints from his largely unexamined archive of late work, the exhibition offers the first comprehensive overview of Winogrand’s complete working life.

Christian Marclay: The Clock   April 6 through June 2, 2013

SFMOMA will present the San Francisco premiere of artist Christian Marclay’s internationally heralded masterpiece The Clock (2010). Constructed from thousands of film clips indicating the passage of time, the work excerpts these moments from their original contexts and edits them together to form a 24-hour video montage that unfolds in real time. Christian Marclay: The Clock will help count down SFMOMA’s launch into its off-site phase during the museum’s forthcoming expansion construction. For more information, read the full release.
