In 2001, the Bohen Foundation, a private charitable organization that commissions new works of art with an emphasis on film, video, and new media, gave the Guggenheim its holdings of some 275 works by 45 artists, immeasurably expanding the museum’s collection of contemporary art. Ranging from important photographic works by Hiroshi Sugimoto, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Sophie Calle to room-sized installations incorporating large-scale video installations by Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Pierre Huyghe, and Willie Doherty, the collection represents a vital and dynamic cross section of art at the turn of the millennium.
