Anyone been to this?
Anyone want to go to this? (with me)
Wine and Design? It can’t get any better. Well, yes it can …ahem, naked men…but this is pretty good. I think I need to make a special trip up to SFMOMA soon!
From the website:
How Wine Became Modern explores the visual culture of wine and its stunning transformation over the last three decades. Designed in collaboration with renowned architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the exhibition combines historical artifacts, architectural models, design objects, newly commissioned artworks, and enticing installations, including a “smell wall,” to probe many aspects of wine culture, among them: the globalization of wine; concepts of terroir; wine in popular media; new strategies in label, glassware, and winery design; and wine tourism.
