Guggenheim:Contemplating the Void

The Guggenheim Museum will feature an exhibit called Contemplating the Void: Interventions in the Guggenheim Museum from 12th Feb thru 28th April of this year, 2010. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Guggenheim building, a visionary structure designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Since its opening in 1959, the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Guggenheim 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.

The museum invited over 200 designers, artists, and architects to reimagine their dream interventions in the Guggenheim Museum’s central rotunda. The guidelines for the project invited artists to “leave practicality or even reality behind in conjuring their proposals for the space.” The exhibition will feature renderings of these visionary projects.
