As the only collecting art institution and the only museum in San Jose dedicated exclusively to acquiring the art of our times, the San Jose Museum of Art's permanent collection of more than 2,600 artworks serve as a valuable resource and public legacy for the community.
South East North West celebrates SJMA’s 50th anniversary with a dynamic presentation of paintings, sculptures, photographs, works on paper, and new media recently acquired by the Museum. Reflecting the rich cultural diversity and innovative spirit that define San José and Silicon Valley, the exhibition showcases the work of internationally acclaimed artists, including those working in California and the Bay Area, and emerging artists garnering critical recognition. A number of artists in the exhibition—including Diana Al-Hadid, Rina Banerjee, Victor Cartagena, Dinh Q. Lê, Louise Nevelson, and The Propeller Group (Matt Lucero, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, and Phunam)—will be familiar to SJMA’s audiences, as they have recently been featured in solo exhibitions at the Museum.
