The days are ticking down for the three-year closure of SFMOMA in June, while a huge addition is constructed to display the recently bequeathed Fisher Collection.
One of the final installations for the museum is Christian Marclay: The Clock, a 24-hour film consisting of clips from all of film history that reference each minute of a day in real time. It sounds like a perfect background piece for anyone's TV or computer screen, but this is High Art so one can only see it in a museum.
Signage in art museums is often hysterically funny in its solemn display of Art Speak, but the sign above seemed intentionally amusing. No "long lines" at this art museum. They feature "significant queues."
