In 2022, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is celebrating its 25th Anniversary with an ambitious presentation of works from the Collection that unfolds throughout the galleries. 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 Museum offers a section of the Collection: Material Life [September 8] in gallery 105, Unfolding Narratives [October 19], on the second floor, and Marking History [September 20] on the third floor are the primary thematic axes of this three-part exhibition, which for the first time provides a panoramic view of the wealth of the cultural and artistic holdings the Museum has acquired since its foundation and up to the present day. Likewise, within the context of the Museum’s 25th Anniversary, gallery 103 displays an exceptional installation by Yayoi Kusama [October 19].
