From June 18 through September 3, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is open until 9 pm for Summer Tuesdays offering music and refreshments in the museum rotunda in addition to exhibitions on view in the galleries. Films, conversations, and performances enhance opportunities for visitors to engage with the museum and the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed building that celebrates 60 years as an architectural icon in 2019.

A series of conversations held on select Tuesdays is organized by Nancy Spector, the Guggenheim’s Artistic Director and Jennifer and David Stockman Chief Curator. In the series, each of the artist-curators of Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection—Cai Guo-Qiang, Paul Chan, Jenny Holzer, Julie Mehretu, Richard Prince, and Carrie Mae Weems—reflects on their interpretations of the collection and the themes that informed their selections.
