After a three-year closure, the redesigned San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) opens its doors on May 14. The $305 million expansion more than doubles the museum's gallery space, making it the largest museum of modern and contemporary art in the country. The museum has also acquired a vast amount of new artwork, and will also be including pieces from the 100-year loan of Donald and Doris Fisher's collection of postwar and contemporary art. Neal Benezra, the museum's director, joins us to talk about the new space, the museum's increased attention to photography and what it's like being the hottest ticket in town.
