Storylines: Contemporary Art at the Guggenheim

Featuring nearly 100 works from the Guggenheim’s contemporary collection, this group exhibition examines how artists today forge new paradigms for storytelling through installation, painting, photography, sculpture, video, and performance. On display in the rotunda, the works—most made after 2005—move beyond conventional plot, character, and mise-en-scène to engage diverse histories embedded in mundane materials and found objects.

Peter Fischli David Weiss: A Retrospective

For more than three decades, Peter Fischli (b. 1952) and David Weiss (1946–2012) collaborated to create a unique oeuvre that brilliantly exploits humor, banality, and a keen rethinking of the readymade to realign our view of the world. Peter Fischli David Weiss: A Retrospective will offer the most thorough investigation of their joint production to date, revealing the ways they juxtaposed the spectacular and the ordinary in order to celebrate the sheer triviality of everyday life, while creating an open-ended interrogation of temporality, visual culture, and the nature of existence itself.
