the SECA Award exhibition at SFMOMA opened Wednesday night to what looked like a crowd surprisingly unaffected by the start of the US invasion. The four artists each have good reason to be included, and there’s a nice mix of the beautiful and the absurd on view. Highlighting the city’s new art stars, this exhibition should be easy to bring to life, but the allotted space feels pushed to the side. What would the museum feel like if it considered this its big show of the season?
