Happy birthday to pioneer of abstract art and theorist Vasily Kandinsky. More than any other 20th century painter, Kandinsky has been linked to the history of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Hilla Rebay—artist, art advisor, and the museum’s first director— promoted nonobjective painting above all other forms of abstraction, particularly inspired by the work and writing of Kandinsky. As a result the Guggenheim collection contains more than 150 works by this single artist. Explore a selection online at guggenheim.org/collection. #Guggenheim #GuggenheimCollection #VasilyKandinsky #Kandinsky

In a site-specific installation created for “Art and China after 1989,” #WangGongxin inverts his 1995 installation “Sky of Brooklyn-Digging a Hole in Beijing,” in which he dug a 3.5-meter-deep “well” in the floor of his Beijing apartment. At the bottom he placed a television monitor playing a video of the blue sky above his old Brooklyn studio. Now, nearly two decades later, a hole in the floor of the museum reflects back the sky on the other side of the world. See “Sky of Beijing-Digging a Hole in New York” on view in #ArtandChina through January 7, and view our Instagram Story for more. ⬆️ #guggenheim

"In many ways, Josef Albers’s photo collages act as a record of visual inspiration in the same way that Instagram functions for designers today. What I think is different in Albers’s case is how loyal he was to a single source, returning to the well over and over and finding inspiration in everything from the angle of a pyramid to the rectilinear grid of windows to the zigzag lines of a ball court." — Jill Singer, cofounder and editor of online design magazine @_sightunseen_.
