Although temporarily closed to visitors due to the recent developments with COVID-19, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
launches #GuggenheimBilbaoLive, a digital initiative which will regularly offer to the public, through both the Museums website and social media, new content that will focus on the Museums current and past exhibitions, and other lesser-known aspects of its operations.
Created to accompany, inspire, and help make confinement more manageable, #GuggenheimBilbaoLive will offer a selection of videos created by members of the Guggenheim Bilbao team. The new virtual content will be published throughout this closure period and will feature senior members of the team discussing their experiences and views. These team members include the Director General and in-house curators, as well as other significant people working in key areas such as conservation, education, interpretation, exhibition design and installation.
Over the course of the closure, a selection of videos will be continually added to the website including:
Exhibitions and Collection: where new videos will be added concerning the art of the exhibitions temporarily not on view.
Museum and Families: an approach to art with the family, with videos created to stimulate childrens creativity and interest in art. This section dedicated to families is sponsored by BBK.
Challenging Installations: aspects of exhibitions that visitors do not normally see from the professionals perspective.
A Bright Shiny Building: bringing the Frank Gehry-designed building to you, from the engine room to other key places that the public are not able to visit.
How to Preserve the Art: artwork conservation, one of the Museums main tasks.
Our Most Memorable Shows: reviving some of the Museums most successful exhibitions.
