For his exhibition The Eye of the Storm: Works in situ by Daniel Buren, the artist has selected three areas of the Guggenheim Museum to display his work, creating different perspectives and new experiences, even for seasoned visitors.
Around the Corner (2000/05), Daniel Buren’s work for the museum’s central rotunda, exposes the powerful presence of the building’s architecture and the various ways it engages the art on exhibition. Buren has conceived an immense cube, part of which lies within the center of the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed architecture. Although only two walls are actually built, the rest of the cube is implied to continue outside the museum’s boundaries.
