Revised, updated, and completely redesigned, the fourth edition of the Guggenheim Museum’s popular guide to its New York collection is a beautifully produced volume, not only a handy overview of the museum’s holdings but also a concise, engaging primer on the art of the late nineteenth through the early twenty-first centuries.
Organized alphabetically, the book consists of entries on more than 170 of the most important paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, site-specific installations, and other works in the collection by artists from Marina Abramović to Maurizio Cattelan to Julie Mehretu to Gilberto Zorio. Also included are definitions of key terms and concepts of modern art, from “Appropriation” to “Nonobjective” to “Postcolonial” and beyond.
The Guggenheim Museum collection is beloved for this wealth of masterpieces by leading modern artists, such as Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, and Pablo Picasso. Reflecting the recent growth in the collection, this edition of the guide includes new entries on Romare Bearden, Tacita Dean, Cao Fei, David Hammons, Catherine Opie, and Adrian Piper, among scores of others. The text is by the museum’s curators as well as prominent authors and scholars, including Homi Bhabha, Thomas Crow, Nikki Greene, and Jeffrey Schnapp.
