URHere at the Guggenheim Museum for “Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection”: May 24, 2019-January 12, 2020.
ConciergeQ’s @tashadwhaj at the Guggenheim Museum’s press preview.
On view from May 24, 2019, through January 12, 2020, this full-rotunda presentation celebrates the Guggenheim’s extensive collection of twentieth-century modern and contemporary artworks, with an exhibition selected by six contemporary artists, all of whom have contributed to shaping the Guggenheim’s history with their own pivotal solo shows. Curated by Cai Guo-Qiang, Paul Chan, Jenny Holzer, Julie Mehretu, Richard Prince, and Carrie Mae Weems, the presentation brings together collection highlights and rarely seen works from the turn of the century to 1980.
Opening remarks were shared by Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation.
And then everyone was invited to explore... On view during the 60th anniversary of the Guggenheim’s iconic Frank Lloyd Wright–designed building, “Artistic License” honors the museum’s artist-centric ethos and commitment to art as a force for upending expectations and expanding perspectives. This exhibition offers a critical examination of the Guggenheim’s collection on the occasion of a significant milestone in its history.
