Description

For nearly 60 years, Jasper Johns has found new ways to explore, as he once put it, "how we see and why we see the way we do." This major exhibition the artist's first Bay Area museum survey in 35 years represents the full range of his career, from his tremendously influential renderings of numbers, flags, and other motifs in the 1950s and 1960s to vibrant recent work. It both reveals the scope of Johns's achievement and reflects the particular interest in his art in the Bay Area, bringing together for the first time works from SFMOMA and other local public and private collections as well as several key works lent by the artist himself. With some 90 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints, this is a rich overview of Johns's art an invitation to look closely, and look again.
