In this post, I write about going to the opening night of the Gego: Measuring Infinity exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
On Thursday night, I saw a new retrospective exhibition at the Guggenheim, the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright-designed museum building on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Two artists' had openings — Sarah Sze and the German-Venezuelan artist, Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt).
Do you see it? I was drawn in by the small square
dangling in the left corner of one of Gego's
trippy geometrical pieces — on view at
the Guggenheim Museum.
| Another example of Gego's geodistic fever dream —|
can you imagine being shrunk and navigating
you way through this three-dimensional maze?
