Since its founding, the Guggenheim has taken bold action to bring art and ideas to life, within and outside its walls. Radicalism is in our DNA. Whether hosting the largest open, anonymous, international design competition (Guggenheim Helsinki), increasing global access to contemporary art and artists (Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative), interrogating the future of cities (BMW Guggenheim LAB), or commissioning site-specific interventions inviting New Yorkers to find respite in the “city that never sleeps”(stillspotting nyc), the Guggenheim extends its mission by inviting diverse audiences to encounter, interpret, and integrate art, architecture, and ideas into their lives.
