An offshoot of Minimalist abstraction, Process Art emerged during the 1960s and ’70s with the notion that the ways in which artworks were produced (i.e. their process) could serve as subject matter. This exhibition focuses on a group of painters, including Agnes Martin, Roman Opałka and Park Seo-Bo, who laid out pencil or brush marks, pinholes—and even numbers—in a systemic fashion that made their methods obvious for viewers to see.
Designed by original starchitect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is arguably the only New York museum that shows art inside a work of art. The Gugg’s famed nautilus-shaped home on Fifth Avenue sets it apart from other NYC art institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum Modern Art (MoMA) and the Brooklyn Museum, but what truly makes the building a global icon is its stunning interior rotunda and oculus. There, along its ascending ramps, you’ll find a world-class collection, as well a full slate of temporary shows as noted in our complete list of the best exhibitions, current and upcoming, at the Guggenheim Museum.
