The Global Guggenheim: Selections from the Extended Collection
With locations in New York, Venice, Bilbao, Berlin, and Las Vegas (opening 2001), and partner institutions around the world, the Guggenheim has broadened its geographic reach and its collection to an extraordinary extent. The exhibition brings selected works from this far-reaching constellation together under one roof. Spanning more than a century of international Modernism, "The Global Guggenheim" presents the evolution of painting and sculpture from Camille Pissarro to James Rosenquist. This exhibition will mark the first comprehensive exhibition of the Guggenheim's holdings since 1992.

HUGO BOSS PRIZE 2000: Marjetica Potrc
The Guggenheim's third biennial Hugo Boss Prize was awarded to Slovenian artist Marjetica Potrc in November 2000. For this exhibition, Potrc has created an installation based on her ongoing exploration of the urban condition as it manifests worldwide. Established in 1996, the Hugo Boss Prize is given in recognition of an artist whose career exemplifies a significant development in contemporary art, one with international cultural reverberations. This is Potrc's first major presentation at an American institution.

Frank Gehry, Architect
California-based architect Frank Gehry has continually shattered conventional notions of what architecture might be, creating what have been called "powerful essays in primal geometric form." This exhibition will survey Gehry's career retrospectively, incorporating architectural models, drawings, plans, and photographs, to investigate the breadth and complexity of Gehry's work.
This exhibition is the American premiere of a new body of work by photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto, created as a special commission for the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin. Working in a scale that is entirely new to his oeuvre, Sugimoto has realized life-size portraits of historical figures such as Henry VIII and Rembrandt by photographing their effigies at wax museums against dramatically-lighted black backdrops. With this series, Sugimoto rekindles a dialogue that has existed since photography's invention: the relationship between painting and the medium of mechanical reproduction.

Brazil: Body and Soul
This exhibition will focus on two distinct periods of Brazilian art: the Baroque and the Modern. Far from a survey, the exhibition will juxtapose Baroque masterpieces from the 17th and 18th centuries with essential works of Modern art and architecture. The exhibition will contain approximately 250 objects, ranging from a complete Baroque chapel, gold and silver liturgical objects, and religious sculpture, to modern and contemporary paintings and sculptures. The exhibition will trace the European, African, and indigenous influences in Brazilian art, both during the Baroque period and in the twentieth century.
