The Guggenheim Museum turns to Asia with a new initiative

In partnership with the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation (and with a USD10 million Foundation grant), the Guggenheim Museum has launched a project to commission works by contemporary artists born in mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, to feature in three exhibitions between 2014 and 2017. The project follows two previous collaborations between the Guggenheim and the Robert H. N. Ho Foundation  - the exhibitions Cai Guo-Chiang:  I want to Believe (2008) and The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860-1869.
