“Portraits and Other Likenesses from SFMOMA” @ Museum of African Diaspora | San Francisco

This special “exhibition explores how portraiture has evolved from a form of personal identification to a genre as invested in fiction, subversion, stereotype, and fantasy as it is in the description of physical traits.” Produced in collaboration with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the group show includes more than 50 works dating from the 1930s to present from SFMOMA’s collection. Featured artists include Njideka Akunyili Crosby, David Hammons, Wifredo Lam, Glenn Ligon, Chris Ofili, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and Fred Wilson, among others.
