    From luxurious ornamentation to austere simplicity, from kitsch to camp, gorgeousness is an evolving and dynamic concept that has been conceived in many ways and has taken various visual forms. Presenting key works from SFMOMA and the Asian Art Museum in provocative and stimulating new contexts, Gorgeous will encourage viewers not only to marvel at the works on view, but also to engage the question "What is gorgeous?" How does the placement of a Mark Rothko painting near a Buddhist mandala, or a 2000-year-old Chinese tomb figure near self-portraits sculpted in soap and chocolate by Janine Antoni bring new aspects of each work into focus? Through two very different collections with very different histories, Gorgeous will inspire debate and discovery.
