From 3 December at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, will perform special programs for visitors who are partially sighted, blind or deaf.
The museum invites all interested parties to a reception and a collective art experience beginning at 6:30 pm. The exhibition brings together many works of contemporary art Guggenheim’s collection that are first available to the public. All these works reflect the development in painting, sculpture, photography and installations. On the first Monday of every month, is given an opportunity for all visitors to explore entirely the museum through communication and sensory tools particular to this experience. This program consists of tours and workshops and is led by arts and education professionals who use verbal imaging and touch to explain and demonstrate the collection.
The Guggenheim Museum invites all visitors to join in December 12 for a new daytime tour of the exihibitions “Now’s the Time: Recent Acquisition”. On view at the museum for the first time, these works reflect recent developments in painting, sculpture, photography, and installation, representing works acquired since 2008 through the museum’s collection committees and the generosity of individual patrons. Many of the artists represented foreground their working processes while exploring the material and conceptual possibilities of artistic mediums ranging from abstract painting, as in the work of Mark Grotjahn, to digitally manipulated photographs, exemplified by the work of Hank Willis Thomas.
Now’s the Time: Recent Acquisitions is curated by Lauren Hinkson, Assistant Curator for Collections, and Carmen Hermo, Curatorial Assistant for Collections.
