Portraits and Other Likenesses from SFMOMA

(Friday) (Sunday)

A dynamic collection of paintings, sculptures, photographs, and videos from SFMOMA.

Featuring approximately 45 artworks, Portraits and Other Likenesses will demonstrate how artists from the early 20th century to our own time have negotiated a vast array of European, African, and American visual-cultural forms to redefine what it means to make a portrait. On view in the newly renovated galleries at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), Portraits and Other Likenesses will feature paintings, sculptures, photographs, and videos from SFMOMA, many of them recently acquired and on view for the first time as part of the collection. The exhibition situates key historical artworks by Romare Bearden, Sargent Johnson, Seydou Keita, and Wifredo Lam in dialogue with recent works by living artists including Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Dawoud Bey, Nick Cave, Mildred Howard, Glenn Ligon, Rodrigo Moya, Chris Ofili, Paula Santiago, Yinka Shonibare, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, Jack Whitten, Fred Wilson, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, among others. Portraits and Other Likenesses is curated by Lizzetta LeFalle-Collins, guest curator for MoAD and Caitlin Haskell, assistant curator of painting and sculpture at SFMOMA.
