Retroactive I, 1963 belongs to the series of silkscreen paintings that Rauschenberg made between 1962 and 1964. The mechanically produced screens allowed him to transcribe his own photographs and images taken from the popular press onto a larger scale.
.
Rauschenberg told art critic Calvin Tomkins, “Kennedy . . . reestablished what a President is supposed to be—somebody special. . . . One of the things that was so shocking about his death was that it was so believable; it wasn’t out of scale with the strength and abruptness of all the things he’d done in office.” Kennedy’s social activism made him a hero to Rauschenberg, and it is this commanding image of the thirty-fifth U.S. President that appears in this silkscreen painting.

While best known for his hanging mobiles, Alexander Calder also created an astounding number of small-scale standing sculptures that challenge the eye and engage the mind. For those who love all things mini, Alexander Calder: Scaling Up is for you. Now on view on Floor 3.

We couldn’t be more impressed by SFMOMA collection artist @kehindewiley + @asherald’s portraits of the Obamas, unveiled this morning at the @smithsoniannpg 🙌 just WOW #obamaportraits

Joan Mitchell, born #otd in 1925, was a bold and inventive painter. She was always focused when she would create, “once I’m starting to paint, then I paint. I mean, I can’t even listen to music. Or I don’t hear it until I’m not painting. It’s a security, sound. I sleep with a sound.”—Joan Mitchell

The Gold Paintings are part of a series begun in 1953 at Rauschenberg’s Fulton St. studio in New York. On a ground of newsprint, paper, and wooden shapes, he would apply gold lead to create these small works with tactile surfaces.
.
Curator Sarah Roberts says that initially the works were shown without glass over them, so the gold leaf would flutter as you walked by✨ #ErasingtheRules

"Art is the highest form of hope."-Gerhard Richter

Happy birthday to Gerhard Richter, born #onthisday in 1932 🎉 Widely considered one of the greatest artists of our time, Richter consistently rejects a single, cohesive style. From seascapes to abstraction, he can do it all.

This week's #WCWxSFMOMA is Detroit-born painter Amy Sillman. Sillman's artistic practice also includes drawings, cartoons, iPhone video, and zines. When asked about beauty in her work Sillman says she doesn't "care about beauty at all. Not one tiny bit. In fact, I don’t like it. I’m interested more in ugliness.”
.
To learn more about Sillman, head to our Instagram stories. To see her work in person, head to the free public space on Floor 2 where 27 of her charcoal drawings are installed.

“I’m interested in how we engage with the world. How do we use our skin as our eyes?”-Eliasson

Happy birthday to #OlafurEliasson, the Icelandic artist who uses space, color, and light to nimbly merge art + science. Eliasson’s majestic One-way colour tunnel (2007) was featured in the first U.S. survey of his oeuvre at SFMOMA in 2007 🔮

Calling all @judy.chicago fans, did you know her Rejection Quintet (1974) and Georgia O’Keefe Plate #1, 1982 are both on view on Floor 2? Because there’s never too much #JudyChicago 🌸

This week, we're turning our focus to award-winning French filmmaker #ClaireDenis. Denis, who initially studied economics, was "never afraid it was a man's world" and knew that "filmmaking was a journey into the impossible."
.
This season of Modern Cinema with @sffilm, kicking off tomorrow, celebrates Denis and her inspirations. Head to our story for more info. #WCWxSFMOMA #filmmaker

There’s a brand new episode of @rawmaterialpodcast! This week our hosts visit @disneyland and try to “find the seams” of the park. They speak with lead Imagineer + Art Director of Disneyland, Kim Irvine, and learn that not all is ~as it seems~

SF based art director @creativekipi “hadn't heard about Ellsworth Kelly's work beforehand, but one of my friends thought I'd enjoy it, and they were spot on.”
.
She was “immediately drawn to the symmetry at first, but fell in love with the playfulness. His work seamlessly switches from something that appears like a painting to something that appears like a sculpture. This back-and-forth drew me in to play along!”
.
What does #YourSFMOMA look like?

"When I am in my painting, I am not aware of what I'm doing. It is only after a short 'get acquainted' period that I see what I have been about. I have no fears about making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.”—Jackson Pollock

#HappyBirthday to abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock, born #onthisday in 1912 in Wyoming.
