Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in United States
Points of Departure II

Points of Departure II: Connecting with Contemporary Art
SAN FRANCISCO  •  San Francisco Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
Rather than displaying works of art as they are most often presented to the public--chronologically, biographically, geographically or by art historical movements--Points of Departure II presents artwork along unconventional, thematic lines. Each of the groupings, or "points of departure," emphasizes a particular artistic approach or formal question that has emerged from the curators' observations about the choices artists make as well as questions visitors have about contemporary art. Each theme is presented in a succinct, single-gallery exposition that includes some of the Museum's most celebrated artworks, including a number of recent acquisitions.
