The Guggenheim celebrates the ideas, people, and art at the core of its mission by offering virtual and in-person Mind’s Eye programming for participants who are blind or have low vision. Join us in April for a tour of the exhibition By Way Of: Material and Motion in the Guggenheim Collection.

How has artistry evolved beyond traditional art making methods outside the studio’s boundaries? This exhibition will examine how contemporary artists enacted new ideas formed by the social and historical contexts of their time and pushed the boundaries of art practice and materials. Join us in exploring and interpreting a suite of works from the museum’s permanent collection inspired by the D.Daskalopoulos Collection Gift. Major artists from the Arte Povera movement of the 1960s and ‘70s, like Jannis Kounellis and Mario Merz, will share the galleries with artists working today, such as Mona Hatoum, Rashid Johnson, and Senga Nengudi.

April’s Mind’s Eye programming will be led by artist and educator Maya Jeffereis through verbal description and conversation. The virtual session will be accessible by web link or by dial-in phone number, depending on your preference.

The same program will be offered twice virtually and twice in person; please RSVP for only one session.
