Guggenheim Circle

Guggenheim Circle

Lenka Clayton and Jon Rubin’s Guggenheim project, Circle Through New York is open for 8 more days!

In the project (full title), A talking parrot, a high school drama class, a Punjabi TV show, the oldest song in the world, a museum artwork, and a congregation’s call to action circle through New York, the artists created a complex system of social and material exchange that brings together city communities often separated by cultural, economic, geographic, or circumstantial boundaries. The artists drew an imaginary circle through Harlem, the South Bronx, Queens, and Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The artists worked with the venues to select aspects of their identities—referenced in the project’s full title—that rotated among the six locations over a period of six months.

Dia:Beacon

Occupying a former Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson River, Dia:Beacon presents Dia’s collection of art from the 1960s to the present. In keeping with Dia’s history of single-artist, site-related presentations, each gallery was designed specifically for the presentation of one artist’s work. Examples include Dan Flavin’s series of fluorescent light “monuments to V. Tatlin” and Richard Serra’sTorqued Ellipses (2007).

The Clark

Opened in 2014, the 42,600-square-foot Clark Center includes more than 11,000 square feet of gallery space. What makes this museum special are its grounds. The Clark’s 140-acre campus encompasses a landscape of expansive lawns, meadows, and walking trails. Bring your sneakers and take a hike up to Thomas Schütte: Crystal- the contemporary artist’s first fullscale architectural artwork in the United States.
