Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
A nine-screen multichannel video installation by Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson, The Visitors (2012) documents a musical performance staged at historic Rokeby Farm in upstate New York. Kjartansson assembled a group of friends to help him produce this work, including several musicians from his hometown of Reykjavik.
Celebrating the first period of partnership between the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, The Art of Our Time: Masterpieces from the Guggenheim Collections presents an ambitious overview of the combined holdings of the Guggenheim institutions and traces the evolution of the Bilbao collection from inception to present day. Following a loose chronology that takes visitors from the third floor down to the first, the works featured in The Art of Our Time engage the space of the entire museum, gradually revealing the historical configuration of the collections and synergies that have emerged among them.
