Within SFMOMA’s collection lies a selection of artworks that challenge our views on sexuality and identification. With the green light from SFMOMA’s resident staff babe Willa (previously exalted on our site,) BATM got to “DJ” for the day and put together this playlist that muses on androgyny in art– its power to lure and gracefully confuse, visually and musically.
More on the artwork that inspired our music picks here.
