 Time Temple


From October 31, 2014 through February 16, 2015, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents Wang Jianwei: Time Temple, an immersive exhibition of new work by the Beijing-based artist and his first solo exhibition in North America. Time Temple is the first in a series of three commission-based exhibitions through The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative at the Guggenheim Museum. The exhibition comprises brand new painting, installation, a two part live performance, titled Spiral Ramp Library and a film, The Morning Time Disappeared. The Exhibition title, Time Temple, alludes to one of the artist's central concerns, the question of how one thinks of and experiences time.

This exhibition is made possible by The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation, and organized by Thomas J. Berghuis, the Robert H. N. Ho Foundation Curator of Chinese Art, with Stephanie Kwai, assistant curator, Asian Art, as part of the Guggenheim Museum's Asian Art Initiative, which is under the direction of Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator, Asian Art. A fully illustrated, bilingual catalogue in English and Traditional Chinese accompanies Wang Jianwei: Time Temple, and in conjunction with the exhibition, the Guggenheim will offer an array of education and public programs, including a film screening of The Morning Time Disappeared with an introduction by John Rajchman that will take place in the Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Guggenheim Museum, at 5pm on Saturday, November 1.


About the Artist
Wang Jianwei(b. 1958, Sichuan) is considered one of the leading artists of the reform-era avant-garde and experimental art movements in China. Wang is also recognized as an influential thinker and cultural catalyst in China for his writings and contributions to the public discourse on contemporary Chinese art and culture.

Wang's work could be interpreted as an attempt to discover and expose the connection between beings, matters and concepts that may seem random on the surface. What he aspires to achieve is a kind of integration of knowledge of various fields that gives rise to his distinctive approach as an artist. Meanwhile his work examines the contact between art and social reality. His highly innovative artworks consider space and time in elaborate ways: working from the notion that the production of artwork can be a continuous rehearsal connecting theater, visual art and film.


About the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation
Founded in 1937, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation is dedicated to promoting the understanding and appreciation of art, primarily of the modern and contemporary periods, through exhibitions, education programs, research initiatives, and publications. The Guggenheim network that began in the 1970s when the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, was joined by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, has since expanded to include the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (opened 1997) and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi (currently in development).
