Michelle Erickson: Wild Porcelain
The museum introduces Michelle Erickson's ceramic art at the center of the Bowles Porcelain Gallery. Erickson's work combines colonial era ceramic techniques and contemporary themes. The design of these works were directly inspired by pieces in the Bowles Collection of 18th-century English porcelain, which form the core of the Fine Arts Museums' European porcelain collections. Based on Erickson's previous political statements, Wild Porcelain confronts visitors with issues such as socioeconomic inequality and human encroachment on the environment, while demonstrating that porcelain remains a dynamic medium of artistic expression in the 21st century.
Bookworks: Selected Recent Acquisitions, 2012 - 2022
A unique collection of modern artist-illustrated books which were given to the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in 1998, was collected by Reva and David Logan. This exhibition, together with the exhibition of the new paper gallery, presents recent gifts from the Logan family and other generous donors, as well as recent museum purchases. The current highlights of this collection include two books illustrated by Pablo Picasso and other important contemporary works. These recent additions strengthen and extend the collection of this vibrant and engaging artform.
