The Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative fosters cross-cultural interaction between artists, curators, and audiences via educational programs, online activities, and collection building. It focuses on three regions—South and Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and North Africa.
June Yap, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, South and Southeast Asia, describes the program’s goal of establishing a dialogue between regions through exhibitions, educational programs, and additions to the museum’s collection.
The Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative is supported by a variety of far-reaching educational and contextual activities, including lectures, panels, performances, films, gallery tours, multimedia mobile tours, and artist-led workshops. These programs and accompanying resource materials will evolve from a dynamic process of exchange among the Guggenheim’s curatorial and education staff, the project curators, the artists, and colleagues from participating institutions.
