Sections / Intersections. 25 Years of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao Collection

09.08.2022 - 02.26.2023

In 2022, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is celebrating its 25th anniversary with an ambitious presentation of works from the permanent collection that unfolds throughout the galleries museum-wide.

The exhibition is conceived as a large triptych, constructed through three thematic approaches that are placed in dialogue with one another, as a means to rediscover works that have historically defined both the interior and the exterior of the Museum. Thus, in Sections/Intersections, each floor of the building offers a section of the collection in three primary axes: Unfolding Narratives, and Marking History. For the first time, this exhibition offers a panoramic view of the wealth of the cultural and artistic holdings the Museum has acquired through the present day. Also in celebration of the Museum’s 25th Anniversary is an exceptional installation by Yayoi Kusama on view at Gallery 103.


Curators: Lekha Hileman Waitoller, Manuel Cirauqui, Geaninne Gutiérrez-Guimarães, Lucía Agirre, Maite Borjabad
