"Organic simplicity might be seen producing significant character in the harmonious order we call Nature: all around, beauty in growing things. None insignificant."—Frank Lloyd Wright, 1931 🍂 Fall has arrived and we can't wait to see the leaves begin to turn across the street in @centralparknyc!

#ArtistInterventions: In 2010 composer Hèctor Parra, Harvard theoretical physicist Lisa Randall, and artist Matthew Ritchie collaborated to create "Hypermusic: Ascension," a site-specific monodrama exploring the reality of a fifth dimension through the mediums of opera and an experimental musical score. Inspired by Randall's book "Warped Passages," which defines the fifth dimension as infinite and curved, Parra's composition contemplates how sound might function in such a space. His music accompanied Randall's libretto, sung by a soprano traveling along the ramps, which were transformed into a "stage" outfitted with Ritchie's abstract props and projected video.

Since opening in 1959, our Frank Lloyd Wright-designed museum has served as inspiration for invention, challenging artists and architects to react to its eccentric, organic design. Follow #Guggenheim60 to discover more artist interventions during our 60th anniversary year!

#WorkoftheWeek: Jean-Michel Basquiat’s “The Death of Michael Stewart” (1983), informally known as “Defacement,” is the artist’s attempt to envision Michael Stewart’s fateful encounter with the police. Originally painted on a wall of Keith Haring’s Cable Building studio laden with tags by graffiti writers, Basquiat’s painting was a deeply personal lamentation that has rarely been exhibited publicly.

This work is on view in “Basquiat’s ‘Defacement’: The Untold Story” through November 6. Plan your visit at guggenheim.org/basquiat. #BasquiatDefacement © Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Licensed by Artestar, New York

On the anniversary of September 11, we look back at composer Arvo Pärt and architectural firm Snøhetta's tribute "To a Great City" at 7 World Trade Center, part of our 2011 "stillspotting nyc" project. Visitors were able to experience the confluence of music and architecture at five separate locations in lower Manhattan that quietly celebrated the city, ten years after the September 11 attacks. Traveling through stillspots along the periphery of Ground Zero, participants encountered a green labyrinth created by the Battery Conservancy, reflected in an underground chamber at Governors Island National Monument, and entered otherwise inaccessible spaces in landmark skyscrapers. The stillness and seclusion of these spaces heightened awareness and recalibrated the senses. Listeners become increasingly sensitized as they were drawn in and transformed to a focused and tranquil state. ––

#ArtistInterventions: In March 2010, the band Animal Collective (@anmlcollective) collaborated with artist Danny Perez on "Transverse Temporal Gyrus," a site-specific piece that transformed the museum’s rotunda into a kinetic, psychedelic environment. Inspired by the imagined experience of hearing birds communicate with one another in the jungle, the performative installation featured an array of sounds played in unique patterns through a 36-channel speaker system along the ramps. This acoustic element worked in conjunction with Perez's video projections, props, and costumes to render the band members and performers as intense visual abstractions. During the three-hour event, guests were invited to explore the space, immersing themselves in this sonic and visual environment.

#WorkoftheWeek: “Close Your Eyes and See Black” (1969) is part of David Hammons’s iconic series of body prints, which he made against the backdrop of the civil rights movement in the United States. Coating his skin, hair, and clothing with grease, the artist pressed his body into paper dusted with pigment or graphite. Referencing avant-garde artists who had previously used imprints to make paintings, such as Yves Klein and Jasper Johns, Hammons further invests these actions with a specific history—one defined by black embodiment.

This work, on view in #ArtisticLicense, is being exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum for the first time. Plan your visit at guggenheim.org/artisticlicense.
