Out of Print

The Library & Archives at SFMOMA house a dynamic collection of primary documents related to the history of modern and contemporary art. Our collections help trace the interconnected trajectories of the museum with those of artists and art spaces that have shaped the cultural life of the Bay Area and beyond for the last century. Using printed matter from the Library’s collections of artists’ books, exhibition publications, and our rich holdings of ephemera from local artists, galleries, and other non-profit art spaces, here we present episodes within the larger arts communities of the region — as well as moments in which collaborations with these communities yielded singular opportunities for experiencing art. Out of Print is dedicated to the informal, innovative, and evocative spaces that artists and designers have created through staging and circulating their works in print.
