Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
September 26 - December 31, 2008

In September 2005, a restoration of the Guggenheim's Frank Lloyd Wright building was initiated, which culminated in 2008 with the unveiling of the newly restored facade and a site-specific light projection by artist Jenny Holzer entitled "For the Guggenheim." Large-scale projected texts suffused the exterior with a play of light and changing language, transforming it into an environment for looking, discussing, and gathering.

For the Guggenheim, 2008. Light projection. Guggenheim Museum, New York. Text: "The End and the Beginning," "Could Have," "Children of Our Age," "In Praise of Feeling Bad about Yourself," "The Joy of Writing," "Tortures," and "Parting with a View," from View with a Grain of Sand by Wisława Szymborska, translated by Stanisław Barańczak and Clare Cavanagh. © 1993 by Wisława Szymborska. English translation copyright © 1995 by Harcourt, Inc.
