by Diana Budds Artworks often need open light-filled galleries that allow them to breathe, but sometimes they need intimate spaces to help them foster one-on-one connections with viewers. In the second camp lies the work of Tobias Wong. Often small in size, Wong’s button, rings, matchbooks, and the like, demand close attention to reveal their nuanced cultural commentary. And by close attention, think up close and personal, nose-against-display-case close. In a retrospective on view at SFMOMA until June 19th, there’s a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see a grouping of Wong’s designs pulled from private collections and the museum’s own coffers.
