Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection
Now on - Jan 12, 2020

This exhibition explores the common and disparate strands of artistic development that were taking place concurrently around the world from the turn of the 20th century to the 1980s. Curated by six very different artists from all around the globe, the exhibition showcases nearly 300 paintings, sculptures, and drawings, with the goal of shining a light on the artistic manifestations of 20th-century cultural discourse, and how they can help to critically reflect on the Guggenheim's own history.

Basquiat’s “Defacement”: The Untold Story
Now on - Nov 6, 2019

Jean-Michel Basquiat's The Death of Michael Stewart, better known as Defacement, is as relevant today as it was when it was painted on the wall of Keith Haring's New York studio.

Created to commemorate young black artist Michael Stewart, who died at the hands of six New York City transit police officers in 1983, the themes explored by Basquiat are still sadly prominent in the age of Black Lives Matter.

Basquiat's “Defacement”: The Untold Story revisits a formative time in the career of the influential American artist. Defacement is the starting point of an exhibition which examines Basquiat's perception of black identity in the early 1980s, and his work to protest against police brutality.

This extensive collection of Basquiat's work is supplemented by pieces from the likes of Haring, Andy Warhol and David Hammons, who also used their craft to comment on Stewart's death and the subsequent acquittal of those involved.

Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe Now
Jul 24, 2019 - Jan 5, 2020

This exhibition explores over 200 iconic photographs from the celebrated American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Featuring an array of works from the Guggenheim's extensive collection, including early Polaroids, collages, and mixed-media constructions, the exhibition spans Mapplethorpe's eclectic spectrum of subjects and themes.

Topics covered include male and female nudes, floral still lifes, portraits of artists, celebrities, and acquaintances, and searingly honest self-portraits. It also features some pretty explicit depictions of New York's underground S&M scene, so it's not for people of all ages!

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (usually shortened to 'The Guggenheim') scarcely needs any introduction. Frank Lloyd Wright's futuristic beehive is an architectural landmark, and the interior houses a world-renowned collection of modern art, celebrating the 20th century and beyond.

Conceived in 1943 by master architect Frank Lloyd Wright, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened to the public in 1959 and changed the world of modern art. Its design is still as cutting-edge as it was in the 50s, with its gracefully spiraling ramp reaching gently into the spectacular domed-glass ceiling.

Frequently updated exhibitions show off a wide range of works from exciting new artists and cultural heavyweights. With free guided tours, downloadable audio guides and interactive augmented reality mobile apps, it's an appropriately contemporary experience – a must-see for lovers of art and architecture, and those looking to recreate that bit at the start of Men in Black.
