Phase 2: The Road Show

Nina Martin | May 23, 2013 | Story

Some will travel to local museums, and a few will tour the world, but most will go into storage. SFMOMA and institutions around California are planning at least a dozen joint shows, pop-ups, and outdoor installations starting this month. ”It will be a very useful time for people to realize that a museum is not just a place,” says Fraenkel Gallery’s Frish Brandt. ”It’s an idea.”
