The first exhibition organized by San Francisco’s McEvoy Foundation for the Arts―established in 2017 by Nion McEvoy of Chronicle Books―brings together an impressive selection of works from McEvoy’s own collection alongside that of his mother, Nan Tucker McEvoy, both world-renowned collectors whose family legacy began with the founding of the San Francisco Chronicle in 1865. This impressively executed catalog illustrates the Foundation’s wide-ranging debut show, which highlighted the family collections’ strengths, documented here alongside an essay by curator Kevin Moore and an introduction by Nion McEvoy. A particular emphasis on Californian artists (Richard Diebenkorn, David Hockney, Ed Ruscha, Wayne Thiebaud) is matched by a wide array of recent acquisitions by artists including Anne Collier, Roe Ethridge, Nan Goldin, Carsten Höller, Ragnar Kjartansson, Zoe Leonard, James Welling and Christopher Williams, across mediums including sculpture, photography, installation, painting, video and illustration.
