Then that person becomes a statistic… and what do we do about it? We have to document.” - Zanele MuholiIn photographing her community, artist Zanele Muholi is practicing “visual activism.” Hear about her practice one week from tonight at SFJAZZ→

    SFMOMA NEWS: Meet Rosalie

    SFMOMA has just acquired a 1971 wall sculpture by Robert Rauschenberg titled Rosalie / Red Cheek / Temporary Letter / Stock. Rauschenberg moved from New York to Captiva Island, Florida, in fall 1970, and began a new series, the Cardboards, that repurposed used boxes as raw material for sculpture. Rosalie neatly encapsulates this Florida-to-New York transition through two mailing labels that the artist affixed to the “Red Cheek” apple cider box during his move. He addressed one label to himself in the general delivery for Captiva; the other, a return label, bears the address of his New York studio. 

    SFMOMA acquired Rosalie through the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation’s Artwork Gift and Purchase program, and the sculpture has been added to the Rauschenberg Research Project, our online Rauschenberg catalogue published last summer.
