Article: The rotunda gets naked
Walk into the Guggenheim on January 29th and you will not see a single piece of art. In fact, it was difficult to find an image to use for this post because, for the very first time in its 50 year history, the Guggenheim is taking all the art off the walls of the rotunda to prepare for the coming of Tino Sehgal. Sehgal’s work is some of the most clever use of what we might call formal art space, meaning galleries, private collections and museums. Some of his previous exhibitions have taken place at the Tate, the Institute of Contemporary Arts and the 2005 Venice Biennale.
