Atrium pt2

The concept is simple: The middle of the Guggenheim is empty, how to fill it? Guggenheim curators Nancy Spector and David van der Leer picked ~200 artists and architects and urged them to be fantastical. They were. Their cleverness turned what could have been institutional self-infatuation into an unusually clear look at what creative leaders are thinking about right now. The list includes climate change, energy and environmental challenges, torture, terrorism and how we respond to it, and institutional critique. Finally, some of the proposals are just plain funny. Each day this week I'll look at how artists projected one of these interests into the GuggenVoid.
