The Eye of the Storm: Works in situ by Daniel Buren
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum  •  Ongoing
 

The Eye of the Storm: Works in situ by Daniel Buren continues a dialogue the French artist (b. 1938) began with the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda almost thirty-five years ago. Buren was invited to participate in the Guggenheim International Exhibition, 1971, which featured a selection of artists whose work represented the "current state of art." Responding to a growing interest in site-specific work, the museum's curators invited artists to create work that had a relationship to the building. Buren's contribution, Peinture-Sculpture (Painting-Sculpture), included a 65 x 32 foot striped banner that hung from the skylight to the bottom of the first ramp, bisecting the great space.

The current exhibition features a major new site-specific installation which again dynamically engages the building's open, central space. Around the Corner (200005) rises from the floor of the rotunda to the top of the sixth ramp. In the alcoves on rotunda levels 25, video monitors feature a selection of images (known as "photos-souvenirs") of many of the artist's projects from the past four decades.

For the windows in the Thannhauser Galleries, Color, Rhythm, Transparency, work in situ: The Double Frieze, Thannhauser 3 and Color, Rhythm, Transparency, work in situ: The Single Frieze, Thannhauser 4 (both 200405), colored gels affixed to the glass filter the light coming into the building and allow visitors to see conditions of display that may often go unnoticed.
