Collected at Pier 24

This was my second visit to Pier24, an all together photo exhibition place at the waterfront in San Francisco. All exhibitions are free of change, you just need to book an appointment online. Again I had my mom, and my good friend and photography partner Birgitte with me. Before entering all three of us NEEDED coffee, so we walked to the Ferry Building to get coffee at Blue Bottle.

From Pier24's website: "Collected—the eighth exhibition at Pier 24 Photography—brings together photographs from the Pilara Foundation and other Bay Area collections. Nine collectors were invited to select works from their holdings that reflect their interests in the medium. The exhibition thus offers a lens on various collecting approaches, with some collectors focusing on the work of particular artists or on specific art historical movements or themes, and others developing their own criteria, whether deliberately or unconsciously. Spanning the last hundred years of the medium, the selections on view here reflect each collector’s strong understanding of photography while also highlighting the singular sensibilities guiding the deeply personal act of collecting. Yet for all their variety, the assembled photographs also reveal the shared traits that unite all passionate collectors: curiosity and discipline paired with rigorous study and close looking".

If you want to see this exhibition, you need to hurry up, last day is January 31st.

Frank Stella @ de young

My mom visits us once a year, and it has become a tradition to go to deYoung Museum whenever she is here. We have seen many amazing exhibition, and this one was among the really good ones. If you live in the San Francisco area, hurry up and go check it out, I think it ends February 12th 2017.

What I think was so unique about thes exhibition, was the surprise you got, going from one room to the next. Following Stella's evolvement from early years of painting, up to his latest work - huge sculptures/3D paintings in vivid colors and shapes.

Please excuse the bad quality on the photo side, museum lightning make lots of bad shadows.
