Storylines: Contemporary Art at the Guggenheim, June 5 – September 9, 2015

“Bringing together over one hundred works from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s contemporary collection, Storylines examines the diverse ways in which artists today engage narrative through installation, painting, photography, sculpture, video, and performance. The exhibition offers an expansive view of how recent artistic practice has become the site of new paradigms for storytelling.” —  Guggenheim Museum
