The Guggenheim is committed to international communication and cultural exchange. The museum has positioned itself as a unique cultural institution for promoting global aesthetics and cultural discourse, in order to realize greater economies and reach larger audiences. This position—inclusive, democratic, and both respectful of difference and excited by it—will inevitably become the standard in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.
Collaborating with cultural institutions, government agencies, and museums around the world, the Guggenheim has organized a wide range of special exhibitions, traveling exhibitions, and programs, including most recently Art in America: Three Hundred Years of Innovation and Felix Gonzalez-Torres: America.
Terra Foundation for American Art
The Guggenheim Foundation is proud to partner with the Terra Foundation for American Art to present Art in America: Three Hundred Years of Innovation. The exhibition, which examines issues of identity, innovation, and scale, demonstrates the central concerns of the history of art in the United States of America. Following its premiere at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing from February 10–April 5, 2007, the exhibition was on view at the Shanghai Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai, from May 1–June 30, 2007; The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, from July 24–September 9, 2007; and at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Spain, from October 11, 2007–April 27, 2008.
The exhibition’s curatorial team has been led by Thomas Krens, Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, along with Susan Davidson, MA, M Phil, Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Betsy Kennedy, Ph.D., Curator of the Collection, Terra Foundation for American Art; and Nancy Mowll Mathews, Ph.D., Eugenie Prendergast Senior Curator of 19th and 20th Century Art, Williams College Museum of Art.
U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs
The official U.S. representation at the 52nd Venice Biennale is organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and is presented by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. Curated by Nancy Spector, Chief Curator of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the U.S. Commissioner for the 52nd Biennale, the exhibition Felix Gonzalez-Torres: America was on view in the Giardini della Biennale, Venice, Italy from June 10 through November 21, 2007.
Gonzalez-Torres was selected to represent the United States as the result of an open competition overseen by the Federal Advisory Committee on International Exhibitions (FACIE) and the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). A jury of museum curators and directors reviewed all submitted proposals and chose Gonzalez-Torres because of the continued significance of his work today.
