With “theanyspacewhatever”, the Guggenheim Museum New York presents a group exhibition of individual installations for the Rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright’s landmark building. The show was organized by the Guggenheim Museum’s Chief Curator, Nancy Spector, in close collaboration with the artists. The exhibition brings together ten artists, whose work reaches beyond the visual arts. Theanyspacewhatever features Angela Bulloch, Maurizio Cattelan, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Pierre Huyghe, Jorge Pardo, Philippe Parreno, and Rirkrit Tiravanija.
Among the works are Carsten Höller’s “Revolving Hotel Room” (see also VTV’s video “Carsten Höller: Carrousel / Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria“), Angela Bulloch’s LED-installation “Firmamental Night Sky: Oculus 12″, and Liam Gillick’s Theanyspacewhatever Signage System. Philippe Parreno has installed a site-specific, illuminated marquee on the facade of the Guggenheim, Douglas Gordon is exhibiting a compilation of text pieces, and Liam Gillick intervenes in the Guggenheim’s operational systems with hanging aluminum signs.
