In 2022, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is celebrating its 25th anniversary with an ambitious presentation of works from the permanent collection that unfolds throughout the galleries museum-wide. The exhibition is conceived as a large triptych, constructed through three thematic approaches that are placed in dialogue with one another, as a means to rediscover works that have historically defined both the interior and the exterior of the Museum. Thus, in Sections/Intersections, each floor of the building offers a section of the collection in three primary axes: Material Life, Unfolding Narratives, and Marking History. For the first time, this exhibition offers a panoramic view of the wealth of the cultural and artistic holdings the Museum has acquired through the present day. Also in celebration of the Museum’s 25th Anniversary is an exceptional installation by Yayoi Kusama on view at the Film and Video Gallery.
Each of the exhibition themes is based on a concept that is autonomous while also in dialogue with the others, suggesting multiple sections and intersections between geographies, timeframes, and media, thereby encouraging new perspectives on the works in the collection. Among the notable aspects of this exhibition is the presence of rarely exhibited pieces, site-specific works, and recent additions to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao Collection.
