Local Travels: The Guggenheim Museum

A few weekends ago I went to The Guggenheim Museum to see the “Picasso Black and White” exhibit (the show closed on January 23rd).  My favorite piece in the “Picasso Black and White” exhibit was the “Woman Ironing (La repasseuse)” painting, which is part of The Guggenheim’s permanent collectionThe work feels like desperation and hopelessness made tangible. Photography of the exhibit itself was not allowed, but the building itself provides plenty of spectacular visual moments.  I also snapped a few iPhone shots of Gabriel Orozco’s “Asterisms” exhibit.  The collection of found objects and corresponding photography of the objects made for an intriguing show.
