Art, Culture and Travel

Art, Culture and Travel are knitted together in ways that inspire people all over the world. Art bridges those gaps which we perceive as cultural divides and vast differences. The Guggenhiem is creating an inspiring cultural connection with art and curators from countries around the world in countries such as Asia, Southeast Asia, Latin America, North Africa and the Middle East.  In a form of cultural exchange, Curators and Educators from these countries will come to New York for two year residencies. Here is an excerpt from the New York Times article:

The project, to be financed by UBS and called the Guggenheim UBS Map Global Art Initiative, will begin with South and Southeast Asia. The museum will invite a curator from each region to New York for overlapping two-year residencies; they will work with a team of Guggenheim curators to identify new and recent artworks that best reflect the range of talents in their areas. The artworks they choose will be acquired for the Guggenheim and will also be the focus of exhibitions that open at the New York museum and then travel to two other cultural institutions.
