Contemplating the Void Auction Preview

Contemplating the Void:
Interventions in the Guggenheim Museum

A 50th Anniversary Benefit Exhibition and Auction

Thursday, March 4, 7–9 pm

For the building’s 50th Anniversary, the Guggenheim Museum invited more than two hundred artists, architects, and designers to imagine their dream interventions in the museum's rotunda for the exhibition Contemplating the Void: Interventions in the Guggenheim Museum, on view February 12 to April 28. More than 90% of the works, including projects by Álvaro Siza Vieira Arquitecto, Thomas Hirschhorn, Anish Kapoor, Philippe Rahm, Pipilotti Rist, Studio Daniel Libeskind, and Rachel Whiteread have been donated for auction, with proceeds supporting the museum’s exhibition programming.

Enjoy a private exhibition preview and cocktail reception, and be the first to bid in the online auction launching in conjunction with this event and continuing through March 18. At 9 pm, please remain as our VIP guests for a psychedelic site-specific performance piece by Animal Collective and Danny Perez in the rotunda.
