Last week artists, curators, and guests gathered to celebrate the opening of "Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away," featuring installations, sculptures, and photography from the Vietnamese-born, Danish artist. Vo's work addresses sweeping cultural and political themes, refracting them through intimate personal narratives—what the artist calls “the tiny diasporas of a person’s life.” Learn more and plan your visit at __ #DanhVo #Guggenheim Photos: Ben Hider and Scott Rudd

"I remember when we used to go up on Tar Beach, which was the roof of our building, we could reflect and look at all of New York, the lights, and it was so beautiful"—Collection artist Faith Ringgold discusses her life, artistic process, and the story of "Tar Beach" (1988) in a 2012 @craftinamerica interview. Best known for her imaginative, narrative quilts, this is the first quilt in Ringgold's colorful and lighthearted series "Women on a Bridge," which depicts the fantasies of Cassie Louise Lightfoot, its spirited heroine and narrator who on a summer night in Harlem flies over the George Washington Bridge. For Ringgold, this phantasmic flight symbolizes the potential for freedom and self-possession.

"I was trying to find a unique angle of the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright design. I found inspiration in the black and white lines on the building and carried that to the white and black crosswalk lines in the foreground of the photo."—Guggenheim Visitor @bspitz #Fra#FrankLloydWrightays __ Photo: Brian #Guggenheim #FrankLloydWright #Architecture #NewYorkCity

Edgar Degas, an Impressionist from an older generation of artists, painted "Dancers in Green and Yellow" in 1903. With his vision failing in the mid-1880s, the more forgiving medium of pastel became increasingly important to Degas, who fully exploited its soft, blurred contours and coloristic effects. While born into a privileged background, he often explored the fringes of Parisian society in his artwork, particularly interested in ballerinas. Degas rendered their forms while caught unaware, depicting grace—or the lack thereof—in their gestures and movement.

"Man needs color to live; it's just as necessary an element as fire and water"—Fernand Léger, born today in 1881. Inspired by Paul Cézanne's ability to accurately describe three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional canvas, in "Nude Model in the Studio" (1912-13), Léger splintered his figure into fragmented units, and his emphasis on arcs and rich color characterize his idiosyncratic Cubist style.

Today we celebrate our museum’s founder, Solomon R. Guggenheim, born on this date in 1861. 🎈 The museum was made possible by his inspired collecting of the art of his time, including over 150 works by Vasily Kandinsky. Guggenheim turned to contemporary, abstract art later in his life, and once said, “As it grew on me . . . I wished others to share in that joy.” #Guggenheim __ Solomon R. Guggenheim at the Plaza Hotel, New York, ca. 1937, with Rudolf Bauer’s "Andante" (from "Tetraptychon: Symphony in Four Movements," 1926–30). Photo: Underwood and Underwood Studios

“'My work is really through installation. It’s always about how things speak together.' His exhibitions can be very spare, with a lot of empty space between objects. Each work invites close attention, to itself and to the repercussions that it sets off with others. A quietly intense conversation is going on, which we can enter or not, as we choose.”—Danh Vo, via @newyorkermag. “Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away,” an illuminating overview of the artist's production from the past 15 years, opens February 9. #DanhVo #Guggenheim __ Artwork: Installation view: Danh Vo وادي الحجارة, Museo Jumex, Mexico City, November 13, 2014–February 25, 2015 Photo: Abigail Enzaldo and Emilio Bernabé García, courtesy Museo Jumex, Mexico City.

Claude Monet visited Venice for the first time in autumn 1908 and was captivated by the city's unique light. Monet returned to basic materials-stones, light, water, mist-each interacting with the other to produce a mosaic of suffused iridescent hues and to capture the fleeting light of Venice that saturate the entire surface of the canvas in "The Palazzo Ducale, Seen from San Giorgio Maggiore" (1908).
