SFMOMA was destined from its start in 1935 to defy convention, investing early in photography, installations, video and other then-experimental media. Once the collection moved into architect Mario Botta’s light-filled brick box in 1995, SFMOMA showed its backside to New York and leaned full-tilt toward the western horizon, pushing the art world to embrace new media, new artists and new ideas. Currently undergoing a half-billion-dollar, 235,000-sq-ft expansion to house expanded collections, the museum is closed until summer 2016.
