Time Out says

The Guggenheim presents the first comprehensive survey in the United States of Danh Vo, a Danish artist living in Berlin whose family fled his native Vietnam after the fall of Saigon in 1975 before eventually settling in Denmark. Over the past 15 years, Vo has assembled an ambitious body of work that examines the intersections of power, history and identity. Politically in scope yet personal in tone, Vo’s projects—based on deep research—combine found objects, documents and images into sculptural tableaux. He’s exhibited worldwide and was winner of the Guggenheim’s Hugo Boss Prize in 2012.

Unless you have extensive knowledge about the story behind the exhibition you feel it's lacking something. The space at Guggenheim doesn't work.., the pieces are oddly lost it that space.., and I'm a big fan of the museum so this is not a criticism of Guggenheim.
