Did you #GuessTheArtist correctly? Here’s the full view of Joan Miró’s “The Tilled Field” (1923-24) from our collection. Born today in 1893, Miró’s “The Tilled Field” is the first example of the artist’s Surrealist vision. The painting’s juxtaposition of human, animal, vegetal forms, and its array of schematized creatures, constitute a realm visible only to the mind’s eye and reveal the great range of Miro’s imagination. While working on the painting Miró wrote, “I have managed to escape into the absolute of nature.” Learn more about the artist at guggenheim.org/collection. #Guggenheim #GuggenheimCollection #Miró

This week’s #GuessTheArtist—this artist explored Surrealist automatism, a way of freely transcribing a wandering imagination without preconceived notions. Comment your best guess below and we’ll share the answer before the end of the day. Buena Suerte! #Guggenheim #GuggenheimCollection

Did you know the museum's oculus has several outfits, including a system of fabrics that both diffuse and filter natural sunlight? For “#DanhVo: Take My Breath Away,” artist Danh Vo chose to present a special and rare experience of Frank Lloyd Wright's Building: the oculus, usually covered, is fully exposed, allowing natural light into the museum for the first time in many years.

Artist #DanhVo describes “Oma Totem” (2009), a three-tiered sculpture made from items given to Vo’s maternal grandmother upon her arrival as a refugee in Berlin after escaping postwar Vietnam. A Catholic social welfare organization provided the objects, which include a television, a refrigerator with an affixed crucifix, and a washing machine. Vo says, “it tells so much about the projection for what a society thinks that foreigners need.” See the work on view in “Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away” through May 9.

For “#DanhVo: Take My Breath Away,” now on view, the artist Danh Vo has reimagined the museum's existing plantings, and removed the customary coverings of the oculus. Visit the museum through May 9 to enjoy natural light, unfiltered for the first time in years, and a number of new plants bringing springtime to the museum. Vo was inspired by early images of the building as conceived by Frank Lloyd Wright, who wished to create a porosity between interior and exterior, filling the space with verdant plantings.

"We wanted to reinvigorate the museum as a truly international activity."— Guggenheim Director Richard Armstrong reflects on how the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative has deepened the museum's relationship with artists, thinkers, creators, and cultural organizations from South and Southeast Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and North Africa. MAP has expanded the Guggenheim’s collection with more than 125 new works and has built physical and digital experiences that bring art and ideas to life.
