The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York just released some sketches of an exciting new installation coming there on October 11. Brooklyn-based artist Nicola Lpez's Landscape X will be a sculptural collage environment in the museum's Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda. Lpez will utilize three levels of the rotunda using everything from chain-link fencing and orange mesh barriers to lane markers for her graphic interpretation of the space.
“In Landscape X, the exterior floods the interior, the grid invades the spiral, and order is distorted. Using various printing, painting, and collage methods, the vocabulary of forms will periodically appear on available surfaces along the scrim, floor, wall, and ceiling. The work heightens the viewer's awareness of the existing architecture and the sense of immanent activity on the other side of scrim.”
If you're headed to New York this fall, between October 11 and October 25, make sure to check it out! (Or if you're there from November to January, don't miss Italian-born Maurizio Cattelan's exhibit.)
