SFMoMA, San Francisco

All Day, All Ages


Film at SFMOMA joins forces with arts and nonprofit institutions across the U.S. working collectively as the Feminist Art Coalition, an initiative organized around feminist thought and practice. No Time to Rest! is a five-part program of films by women that foreground the possibilities of resistance and activism as it critiques power structures, reclaims historical narratives, seeks bodily autonomy and reframes the act of representation in direct confrontation with patriarchal, racist and capitalist legacies. Available online at and co-curated by Rudolf Frieling, SFMOMA curator of media arts, and Gina Basso, SFMOMA manager of film, the program features Eve Fowler, Jeanne C. Finley, Kelly Gallagher, Ja'Tovia Gary and Lynn Hershman Leeson.

The Book of Now: Dieter Roth and Ed Ruscha

Legion of Honor, San Francisco

All Day, All Ages


Working in very different styles in the 1960s, Dieter Roth in Europe and Ed Ruscha in Los Angeles revolutionized the way artists work in the medium of books, each creating something immediate and new. The Book of Now: Dieter Roth and Ed Ruscha demonstrates that by subverting the traditional fine art publication of deluxe livres d'artistes, the artists' self-published editions--outwardly modest yet conceptually advanced--broke new ground.

Image: Edward Ruscha, Henry "Dick" DeRusha (printer), Every Building on the Sunset Strip by Edward Ruscha (Los Angeles: self published, 1966), 1966. Accordion-fold book of offset printed reproductions of black and white photographs, 7 1/8 x 5 11/16 x 1/2 in. (18.1 x 14.4 x 1.2 cm).
