Pamela and Richard Kramlich Collection, San Francisco

The Kramlichs begin collecting film and video-based art in the late 1980s. With more than 200 pieces, they have one of the world’s largest private collections of video and new media arts. Their collection includes works by such historical figures as Vito Acconci, Dara Birnbaum, Marcel Broodthaers, Dan Graham, and Bruce Nauman, as well as by leading contemporary artists including Matthew Barney, Stan Douglas, Steve McQueen, Mariko Mori, Keith Tyson, and Jeff Wall. In 1997, the Kramlichs establish the New Art Trust to advance the media arts through the support of research and scholarship in the field. This foundation also collects and maintains new media art installations.
