Now showing at SFMoma

Last Friday, I went to see the opening of the new William Kentridge exhibit at SFMoma. I didn’t find very much of his work aesthetically pleasing – a lot of it is quite creepy – but it’s worth seeing for the sheer creativity of it all. His videos remind me of this crazy animated graffiti:

A couple of other pieces currently on display caught my attention. I love the contrast between the crispness of the hair and the soft blur of the background in Off The Diagonal, Buenos Aires by Leo Rubinfien:

And Tauba Auerbach’s Crumple part of the 2008 SECA award,  becomes no more than a bunch of dizzying black dots when seen up close.

I want this in my living room.
