Storylines: Contemporary Art at the Guggenheim, New York

Bringing together over 100 works from the Guggenheim’s contemporary collection, Storylines examines the diverse ways in which artists today engage narrative through installation, painting, photography, sculpture, video, and performance. For these artists, storytelling does not necessarily require plots, characters, or settings. Rather, narrative potential lies in everyday objects and materials, and their embedded cultural associations. The exhibition is enhanced by contributions from 31 renowned novelists and poets including Michael Cunningham, Neil Gaiman, Joyce Carol Oates, and Annie Proulx.
