“Shifting the Silence” presents the work of 32 women artists who, as the museum explains, “use the radical, experimental and powerful language of abstraction to explore the world we inhabit.” The exhibition, on view from 9 April to 5 September 2022, includes works by artists such as Firelei Báez, Nairy Baghramian, Liz Hernández, Cinthia Marcelle, Tania Pérez Córdova, Lorna Simpson and Haegue Yang.

Also from 9 April to 5 September 2022, SFMOMA will present “Speculative Portraits”, a multidisciplinary exhibition, with works ranging from sculpture to digital art that “draw from scientific research and technology to expand on ideas of portraiture, identity and human presence”. With a strong female presence, the exhibition includes works by Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Rhonda Holberton, Mika Tajima and Gail Wight.

Finally, on the occasion of the full reopening of the museum’s terrace, from 9 April SFMOMA presents the US debut of “Songs Sung in the First Person on Themes of Longing, Sympathy and Release”, by Berlin-based Scottish artist Susan Philipsz. In this sound installation, the artist sings a capella covers of groups such as Teenage Fanclub, Soft Cell, The Smiths and Gram Parsons, “popular music used for their capacity to evoke emotional responses and collective memories”. #2022 #SFMOMASanFranciscoMuseumofModernArt #theartwolf
