SFMOMA‘s “Now Playing” program tweaks the museum experience into a live-action display, remolding the museum space as a “platform, stage, and promenade.”

This month‘s NP highlights the avant-garde with multi-media artist Anna Parkina, whose paper and collage work exploring the dynamics of perception and history will be on display through June 19.

The evening also includes a collaboration with Noise Pop, featuring dance artists robbinschilds (Layla Childs and Sonya Robbins) and Seattle noise band Kinski. Together, the two groups will present “C.L.U.E.” (color location ultimate experience), which is a live performance work using sound and video.

NP events are a great way to see the museum in a different light and experience the different artistic textures it has to offer. Plus, if you’re hungry, there will be local chefs serving up small plates, featured local vintners, free bites hosted by San Francisco magazine, and a cash bar.
