Beijing-based artist Wang Jianwei presents Time Temple, the first of three commissions by The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative at the Guggenheim museum. Here the artist examines the contact between art and social reality. His highly innovative works consider space and time in elaborate ways: working from the notion that the production of artwork can be a continuous rehearsal, effectively connecting theatre, visual art, and film. The exhibition comprises installation, painting, film, and a live theatre production.
