Celebrate SFMOMA’s 75th Anniversary at these Thursday night happenings. SFMOMA: Now Playing invites artists to animate SFMOMA in unexpected ways — and audiences to see the museum in a different light. Partygoers will experience the atrium as a projection chamber, a hidden annex as a bar/lounge, and artists playing the architecture. The evenings also include hors d'oeuvres and cash bar.

9:00 p.m. Chris Johanson leads the Mission super-group The 17th & Capps
Experience the museum animated by artists and luminaries. Tonight: Johanson, a key figure who emerged among San Francisco's Mission School artists, returns to the Bay Area to launch his collaborative project with THE THING Quarterly. A periodical in the form of an object, THE THING commissions artist multiples that incorporate text. Each issue is kept secret until the date of release. Guests can purchase Johanson's THING issue and put it to use while watching video projections of moonrises by Johanson and Will Rogan. The musical group The 17th & Capps (featuring Johanson, Joe Goldring, and surprise guests) revisits its punk back catalogue, reinterpreted as American standards. A pre-show screening of artists' home movies sets the vibe. The evening begins in the Rooftop Garden with a floral-based menu from Blue Bottle Coffee Co. and Meatpaper magazine.

A small number of THE THING objects by Chris Johanson will available at the MuseumStore on the night of the event. THE THING is also offering a special discount on annual subscriptions to SFMOMA members.
