If you're anywhere near the San Francisco bay area, your last chance to see the DRAWING RESTRAINT exhibition at the SF Museum of Modern Art is drawing near. With the show ending on September 17th, this is the final week of an exhibit that only those lucky enough to be in Japan, Korea, and the far left side of the United States have been able to attend.

More pertinent to Björk fans, this may well be their last chance for a long time to view DRAWING RESTRAINT 9. Fanning the flames of criticism that Barney’s art is “art created for rich people,” he has said that his films will not be released on DVD. "They cannot be distributed as DVDs because they originally sold as limited-edition art objects,” Barney said. “If a sculpture is in an edition of six, you can't make more of them. It's not right for them to be available to be owned in an unlimited way after they've been sold in a limited way. I have the right to do theatrical distribution of the films, which I've done with 'CREMASTER' and ‘DRAWING RESTRAINT 9.' In Paris, they have now, for the second time, brought back the series. It's certainly a better condition to see it than on a monitor."

The film runs once a day and is free with the ticket price to the exhibition. Check the MOMA website for times (link on this page).
