Intervals: Nicola López
October 11–25, 2011
As part of the Guggenheim's ongoing Intervals series, designed to reflect the spirit of today's most innovative practices, New York-based artist Nicola López will create the site-specific work Landscape X, a sculptural collage environment in the museum's Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda. López will utilize three levels of the rotunda between the exhibitions Lee Ufan: Marking Infinity and Maurizio Cattelan: All. Taking the construction site as a point of departure, López appropriates elements of urban infrastructure from chain-link fencing to orange mesh barriers to lane markers for her graphic intervention in the space. In Landscape X, the exterior floods the interior, the grid invades the spiral, and order is distorted. Using various printing, painting, and collage methods, the vocabulary of forms will periodically appear on available surfaces along the scrim, floor, wall, and ceiling. The work heightens the viewer's awareness of the existing architecture and the sense of immanent activity on the other side of scrim.
Intervals: Nicola López is organized by Helen Hsu, Assistant Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
