SFMOMA exhibits an internationally recognized collection of modern and contemporary art, encompassing more than 26,000 works. With strong holdings in photography, painting and sculpture, architecture and design, and media arts, they strive to present key examples of Modernism as well as more recent works that reflect a variety of artistic developments occurring regionally, nationally, and around the world. Each year, in addition to organizing ongoing installations of permanent collection works, their curators develop a variety of collection-based presentations to complement the special traveling exhibitions hosted by the museum.
