Canadian artists Jeff Wall, Stan Douglas, Luis Jacob and Sarah Anne Johnson are included in Haunted, a large exhibition of video, installation and photographic imagery exploring themes of memory, trauma, and return to the past. The show can be seen at the Guggenheim Museum in New York to September 6. These contemporary obsessions are also shown in works by Marina Abramović, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman and Andy Warhol among many others.

February 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

This project is so exciting!Over 200 artists, architects and designers will be represented in this show with their visions of intervention to fill in the blank of Guggenheim Museum‘s big central rotunda, or ‘void’. The show is part of the museum’s 50th anniversary celebration its impressive list of participants includes names like  Anish Kapoor, Rachel Whiteread and the Campana brothers – my fellow Brazilian designers.
A website accompanies the show.
