Guggenheim Bilbao celebrates 20 years
The Guggenheim Bilbao is the building that changed the fortunes of a city, and made Bilbao one of the cultural centres of Europe. This architectural icon and bastion of high art turns 20 in October 2017, and has commissioned a new piece from 59 Productions to celebrate that anniversary. Using entirely original music, sound, light and projection, Frank Gehry’s astonishing titanium-clad building will be augmented and transformed over a series of nights in a spectacle accessible to citizens of Bilbao and tourists alike. The technical and creative challenges make this one of 59’s most exciting commissions to date.
‘A Perfect Harmony’ will light up the Mall
59 has been commissioned to transform Smithsonian’s Freer|Sackler Galleries into a spectacular public artwork, to celebrate the renovation and reopening of the two museums this October. Inspired by Freer’s unshakeable belief that art could deepen understanding and appreciation of world cultures, ‘A Perfect Harmony’ will light up the Washington night in an empowering and not-to-be-missed celebration of art and ideas.
