NEW YORK, NY.- Conceived amid the historic social and cultural transformations of the past year, Re/Projections: Video, Film, and Performance for the Rotunda rethinks the Guggenheim’s iconic architecture as a site of assembly, reflection, and amplification. The series comprises four distinct projects that occupy the entire rotunda one at a time. In-Between Days: Video from the Guggenheim Collections, a screening program of videos from the museum’s permanent collection, is on view from March 19 to April 19, 2021. It is followed by site-specific, immersive installations by artists Christian Nyampeta, Ragnar Kjartansson, and Wu Tsang. Each of these varied presentations draws on the building’s unique capacity for distanced gathering to create frameworks for dialogue and mutual care.

The experimental approach behind Re/Projections is designed to privilege multiple voices while remaining nimble in a moment of economic and public health crises. With its focus on video, film, and performance, the series also celebrates acts of embodiment, storytelling, and interpersonal connection. As audiences convene in the Guggenheim’s landmark space, they will encounter new visions for navigating tensions between collective and individual experience, asking how we might live together better in an increasingly polarized world.

In-Between Days: Video from the Guggenheim Collections is organized by Nat Trotman, Curator, Performance and Media.

Opening one year after the Guggenheim closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, In-Between Days highlights videos that explore themes of isolation, confrontation, and occupation—states of being that have come to set the terms of daily life for so many. Several works portray solitary or paired figures engaged in moments of struggle, perseverance, or introspection. Some consider ways that historical systems of power are embedded in architecture and the land. Still others depict realms of fantasy, offering moments of respite through dreamlike or abstract images. The selection of videos reflects the global diversity of the Guggenheim’s collecting practices over the past decade. All works are shown here for the first time in the museum’s galleries.

The In-Between Days program is presented in two parts, with five videos appearing from March 19 to April 3 and five from April 4 to 19. A half-hour intermission takes place every day in the early afternoon. Featured artists from March 19 to April 3 are Meriem Bennani, Sky Hopinka, Jesper Just, Liz Magic Laser and Simone Leigh in collaboration with Alicia Hall Moran, and Lawrence Lek. Featured artists from April 4 to 19 are Ali Cherri, Shezad Dawood, Steffani Jemison, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, and Lucy Raven. More information on each of the artworks is available here.

Following In-Between Days, three artist installations will be presented in the spring and summer:
