(NEW YORK, NY – August 13, 2012) — Works & Process at the Guggenheim is pleased to announce its 2012 fall season. Since 1984, the performing arts series has championed new works, offered audiences unprecedented access to leading creators and performers, and hosted receptions for the audiences and artists. Each intimate, 80-minute performance uniquely combines artistic creation and stimulating conversation and takes place in the Guggenheim’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed, 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. A reception for the audience and artists follows most programs. Described by the New York Times as “a popular series devoted to shedding light on the creative process,” Works & Process is produced by founder Mary Sharp Cronson. Past performance highlights can be viewed at

Lead funding provided by The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation with additional support from The Christian Humann Foundation, Leon Levy Foundation, and Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Inc.

Guggenheim Exhibition Schedule 2010–11

Through January 13, 2010

No artist epitomizes the character of the Guggenheim Museum quite like Russian-born artist Vasily Kandinsky. His history is closely intertwined with that of the institution, and the Guggenheim has collected his work in-depth since its founding. Presented to coincide with the museum’s 50th Anniversary, this full-scale retrospective of Kandinsky’s oeuvre is the first in the United States since 1985, when the Guggenheim completed its trio of groundbreaking exhibitions on the artist’s life and work in Munich, Moscow, and Paris. The Guggenheim; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich—the three institutions that own the greatest concentration of the artist’s work in the world—have partnered to assemble this presentation of nearly 100 paintings from their renowned collections and from significant loans from private and public holdings. Complemented by more than 60 works on paper from the collections of the Guggenheim and Hilla von Rebay foundations, Kandinsky offers a chronological survey of the artist’s work through a selection of his most important canvases, including examples from his series of Improvisations, Impressions, and Compositions, and reexamines the geographic and time-based divisions traditionally applied to his work. The unprecedented collaborative efforts of the Guggenheim, Pompidou, and Lenbachhaus have brought together works that have rarely traveled. The New York presentation is organized by Tracey Bashkoff, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, with Karole Vail, Assistant Curator.

Organized in cooperation with the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau, Munich, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris.

Generous support provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and Baibakov Art Projects.

Supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

The Leadership Committee with founding support from Nicki and Ira Harris is gratefully acknowledged.

Through January 13, 2010

Gabriele Münter and Vasily Kandinsky, 1902–14: A Life in Photographs presents German artist Gabriele Münter’s photographs (along with a selection taken by her companion, Russian-born artist Vasily Kandinsky), recording the years they lived, traveled, and worked together between 1902 and 1914. Private and documentary images from their life in Germany and their travels in Europe and northern Africa, as well as portraits taken with friends and colleagues offer a fascinating glimpse into the artists’ private and public personas. Gabriele Münter and Vasily Kandinsky, 1902–14: A Life in Photographs is organized by the Sackler Center for Arts Education at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Through January 6, 2010

Bringing together two important works from the permanent collection for the first time, this exhibition illuminates the profound artistic dialogue between Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Roni Horn. Suspended from the ceiling, the new acquisition “Untitled” (Golden) (1995) by Gonzalez-Torres acts as a site of passage, a shimmering curtain of golden beads opening onto Horn’s delicate gold floor piece, Gold Field (1980–82). The paired works reflect a critical engagement with the legacy of Minimalism and the emotive possibilities of form. This exhibition is organized by Nancy Spector, Chief Curator.

Through January 6, 2010

Berlin-based Kitty Kraus has been invited to exhibit her work for the second installment of Intervals, a new contemporary art series designed to showcase experimental projects by emerging artists and reflect the spirit of today’s most innovative practices. Kraus works in a spare, elegiac vocabulary of monochrome forms and humble materials such as lightbulbs, ice, mirrors, and glass. For Intervals, Kraus has installed two sculptures in the Annex Level 5 gallery of the museum. This exhibition is organized by Nancy Spector, Chief Curator; Joan Young, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art and Manager of Curatorial Affairs; and Katherine Brinson, Assistant Curator.


Through March 28, 2010

With the inauguration of the Deutsche Guggenheim in 1997, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Deutsche Bank launched a unique and ambitious program of contemporary art commissions that has enabled the Deutsche Guggenheim to act as a catalyst for artistic production. Anish Kapoor: Memory is the 14th project to be completed since the program’s inception and is the foundation’s first collaboration with the artist. On view in New York after its Berlin debut, the commission demonstrates Kapoor’s ability to create a site-specific work that engages with two very different exhibition spaces. Born in 1954 in Bombay, the artist has lived in London since the early 1970s and quickly rose to prominence in the 1980s. Best known for his explorations of the concept of the void and his use of color and scale, he has since redefined contemporary sculpture. Memory is a remarkable new work in industrial Cor-Ten steel that transforms the galleries through shifts in physical, mental, and architectural scale. This exhibition is organized by Sandhini Poddar, Assistant Curator of Asian Art.

Made possible by Deutsche Bank.

January 23–May 12, 2010

During the first decades of the 20th century, numerous painters and sculptors migrated to Paris, which had become the international nexus for vanguard art. Bringing with them their various customs, these artists absorbed and contributed to the latest developments, often fusing new elements with aspects of their respective traditions in their works. While they did not adhere to one fixed style, typical of a “school,” they united in defiance of academicism. Their artistic innovations, including Cubism and Surrealism, profoundly influenced generations of artists. Paris and the Avant-Garde: Modern Masters from the Guggenheim Collection will feature some 30 paintings by such artists as Georges Braque, Marc Chagall, Robert Delaunay, Albert Gleizes, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, and Yves Tanguy, among others, as well as showcase significant sculptures by Constantin Brancusi and Alexander Calder. The exhibition is curated by Tracey Bashkoff, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, and Megan Fontanella, Assistant Curator.

January 29–March 10, 2010

London-born, Berlin-based artist Tino Sehgal constructs situations with people that defy the traditional contexts of museum and gallery environments, focusing on the fleeting gestures and social subtleties that define lived experience rather than the material aspects of conventional art making. His singular practice has been informed by his studies in dance and economics, yielding ephemeral works that consist only of the interactions among their participants and are not visually documented. Organized as part of the Guggenheim’s 50thanniversary celebrations, Sehgal’s exhibition comprises a mise-en-scène that will occupy the entire Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda. One facet of the artist’s practice, quasisculptural choreographed movement will transform the ground floor of the rotunda into an arena for spectatorship. On the spiraling ramp, another aspect—direct verbal interaction between museum visitors and trained participants—will predominate. Sehgal’s works expand the concept of what constitutes a contemporary art object, offering the viewer an immediate engagement with the realization of the work presented. This exhibition is organized by Nancy Spector, Chief Curator, assisted by Nat Trotman, Associate Curator, and Katherine Brinson, Assistant Curator.

Made possible by the International Director’s Council of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Additional funding provided by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, the Juliet Lea Hillman Simonds Foundation, and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany. The Leadership Committee is gratefully acknowledged.

February 12–April 28, 2010

This exhibition celebrates the catalytic power of the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed museum’s spiraling rotunda on the occasion of the building’s 50th Anniversary. Since its opening in 1959, the building has served as an inspiration for invention, challenging artists and architects to react to its eccentric, organic design. The central void of the rotunda has elicited many unique responses over the years, which have been manifested in both site-specific solo shows and memorable exhibition designs. With that history in mind, the Guggenheim invited approximately 200 artists, architects, and designers to imagine their dream interventions in the space. The show will feature their renderings of these visionary projects in a salon-style installation that will emphasize the rich and diverse range of the proposals. This exhibition is organized by Nancy Spector, Chief Curator, and David van der Leer, Assistant Curator for Architecture and Design.

March 26–September 6, 2010

Much of contemporary photography and video seems haunted by the past, by ghostly apparitions that are reanimated in reproductive media, as well as in live performance and the virtual world. By using dated, passé, or quasi-extinct stylistic devices, subject matter, and technologies, this art embodies a melancholic longing for an otherwise unrecuperable past. Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance examines the myriad ways photographic imagery is incorporated into recent practice and in the process underscores the unique power of reproductive media while documenting a widespread contemporary obsession, both collective and individual, with accessing the past. The works included in the exhibition range from individual photographs and photographic series, to sculptures and paintings that incorporate photographic elements, and to videos, both on monitors and projected, as well as film, performance, and site-specific installations. Drawn primarily from the Guggenheim Museum collection, Haunted will feature recent acquisitions, many of which will be exhibited by the museum for the first time. Included in the show will be work by such artists as Marina Abramović, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Sophie Calle, Tacita Dean, Stan Douglas, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Zoe Leonard, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jeff Wall, and Andy Warhol. A significant part of the exhibition will be dedicated to work created since 2001 by younger artists. This exhibition is curated by Jennifer Blessing, Curator of Photography, and Nat Trotman, Associate Curator.

Made possible by the International Director’s Council of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Additional support provided by The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation.

The Leadership Committee is gratefully acknowledged.

May–October 2010

In this exhibition, acclaimed American artist Julie Mehretu will premiere in New York Grey Area, a new suite of paintings that she produced for the 15th project of Deutsche Guggenheim’s commission program, which is on view in Berlin through January 6, 2010. Mehretu is celebrated for her large-scale paintings and drawings that layer abstract forms with familiar architectural imagery. Inspired by a multitude of sources, including historical photographs, urban-planning grids, modern art, and graffiti, these semiabstract works explore the intersections of power, history, dystopia, and the built environment along with their impact on the formation of personal and communal identities. This exhibition is organized by Joan Young, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art and Manager of Curatorial Affairs.

Made possible by Deutsche Bank.

The Leadership Committee is gratefully acknowledged.

October 1, 2010–January 9, 2011

Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy, and Germany, 1918–1936 is the first exhibition in the United States to explore the classicizing aesthetic that followed the immense destruction of World War I. It will examine the interwar period in its key artistic manifestations: the poetic dream of antiquity in the Parisian avant-garde of Fernand Léger and Pablo Picasso; the politicized revival of the Roman Empire under Benito Mussolini by artists such as Giorgio de Chirico and Mario Sironi; and the functionalist utopianism at the Bauhaus as well as, chillingly, the pseudobiological classicism, or Aryanism, of nascent Nazi society. This presentation of the vast transformation in French, Italian, and German contemporary culture will encompass painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, film, fashion, and the decorative arts. This exhibition is curated by Kenneth E. Silver, guest curator and Professor of Modern Art, New York University, with Vivien Greene, Curator of 19th- and Early-20th-Century Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Karole Vail, Assistant Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; and Helen Hsu, Curatorial Assistant, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Summer 2011

Established in 1996, the biennial Hugo Boss Prize, administered by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, is awarded to an artist whose work represents a significant development in contemporary art. Selected by an international jury of curators, the Hugo Boss Prize 2010 short list includes Cao Fei, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Roman Ondák, Walid Raad, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul. The winner of the eighth prize will be announced in fall 2010, and an exhibition of the artist’s work will be presented at the Guggenheim in summer 2011. Previous recipients of the prize are Matthew Barney (1996), Douglas Gordon (1998), Marjetica Potrč (2000), Pierre Huyghe (2002), Rirkrit Tiravanija (2004), Tacita Dean (2006), and Emily Jacir (2008). This exhibition is curated by Katherine Brinson, Assistant Curator.

Ongoing Exhibitions

The newly restored Thannhauser Gallery reopened to the public in 2008 with a selection of canvases, works on paper, and sculpture bequeathed to the museum by the important art dealer and collector Justin K. Thannhauser (1892–1976). Representing the earliest works in the museum’s collection, the Thannhauser holdings include significant works by Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, and Vincent van Gogh. Thannhauser’s commitment to supporting the early careers of such artists as Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Franz Marc, and to educating the public about modern art, paralleled the vision of the Guggenheim Foundation’s originator, Solomon R. Guggenheim. Among the works Thannhauser gave are such incomparable masterpieces as Van Gogh’s Mountains at Saint-Rémy (Montagnes à Saint-Rémy, July 1889), Manet’s Before the Mirror (Devant la glace, 1876), and close to 30 paintings and drawings by Picasso, including his seminal works Le Moulin de la Galette (autumn 1900) and Woman Ironing (La Repasseuse, spring 1904). This reinstallation of more than 30 works of the Thannhauser Collection offers visitors the opportunity to reacquaint themselves with some of the iconic images that comprise this celebrated collection.


Admission: Adults $18, students/seniors (65+) $15, members and children under 12 free. Admission includes audio guide tour.

From Berlin to New York

Self Portrait of Karl Nierendorf

From Berlin to New York:

Karl Nierendorf and the Guggenheim, an exhibition of approximately 70 works, including painting, works on paper, and sculpture, as well as historical exhibition brochures and announcements from the collection of the German-born art dealer Karl Nierendorf (1889–1947), will be on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum from January 26 through May 4, 2008.

This exhibition of selections from the Guggenheim Foundation Collection features works by Josef Albers, Adolph Gottlieb, George Grosz, Vasily Kandinsky, Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, and Oskar Kokoschka, among others.

Formerly a banker, Karl Nierendorf began his career in the art trade in 1920 in Cologne, specializing in works on paper by German and Austrian Expressionist artists. In 1936 Nierendorf immigrated to the U.S.A. and established the Nierendorf Gallery in New York, where he encountered Hilla Rebay (1890–1967) and the newly established Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation.

Nierendorf promoted artists represented in the Guggenheim collection, including Lyonel Feininger, Perle Fine, and Franz Marc, which led the Foundation to purchase a number of important works for its collection from Nierendorf Gallery. Following his death in 1947, the Guggenheim Foundation purchased the entire estate of Karl Nierendorf, thereby gaining not only works acquired for the Guggenheim during his travels abroad from 1946 to 1947, but also his gallery inventory and likely objects from the dealer’s personal collection.

This major acquisition enriched the breadth of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Founding Collection with a concentration of Expressionist works, such as Kokoschka’s Knight Errant (1915); Surrealist paintings; and significant holdings of Klee. Comprised in this major purchase are also early paintings by Adolph Gottlieb, which are among the first compositions by a member of the nascent school of Abstract Expressionism to enter the Guggenheim’s collection.

This permanent collection installation features both acquisitions from Karl Nierendorf’s galleries in Berlin and New York and from the dealer’s estate. In addition to historical exhibition brochures and gallery announcements, the exhibition will feature an interactive touch screen where the visitor can view archival catalogues, page by page.

Exhibition ToursCuratorial tours of the exhibition, free with admission, will be given on February 1, 8 and 15, 2008, at 2:00 PM.

Art in New York City

Rememberance of the Eygptian Exhibit of Long - a - Go in NYC .....remember?

By Liz LarnerDoris Freedman Plaza, Central Park at East 60th Street Manhattan

Liz Larner is best known for her engaging investigations into the physicality of objects in space. 2001 is Larner’s virtuoso reinterpretation of the two quintessential geometric forms of modernist sculpture – the sphere and the cube. Twelve feet high, deep and wide, and painted in green and purple iridescent urethane, 2001 is anenigmatic shape-shifter; its contour and color change with the viewer’s angle and the overall light conditions so that it seems to be both at rest and undergoing metamorphosis.

Larner lives and works in Los Angeles. She received a BFA from California Institute of Arts (1985). Her work has been featured in the Whitney Biennial (2006), Regen Projects, Los Angeles (2005); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2002); Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2001); Kunsthaus Graz, Austria (2006).
