McEvoy Arts was a private operating foundation in San Francisco that presented exhibitions and events that engaged, expanded, and challenged themes found in the McEvoy Family Collection. The organization invited curators, artists, and thinkers to bring new perspectives to the collection. These collaborations and commissions produced two to three annual exhibitions in the galleries and related exhibitions of film and video in the adjacent Screening Room, as well as dozens of public programs every year. Notable exhibitions included Isaac Julien’s ‘Lessons of the Hour’ (2020-21), ‘Orlando’ (2020) guest curated by Tilda Swinton, and ‘Ragnar Kjartansson: Scenes from Western Culture’ (2018). Admission to exhibitions was free. McEvoy Arts opened on October 28, 2017 and closed permanently to the public on September 2, 2023.
