Guggenheim Museum – Cai Guo-Qiang

New York, NY

This exhibition included nine cars, stripped of their engines, reinforced and suspended at different heights within the rotunda; 99 stuffed wolves, several boat hulls and a fiberglass “river” among other things. GMS worked with the museum’s Fabrication Department to sequence the installation of each piece; we checked the capacity of the original building to support the art and specified the cables, connectors and anchors to realize this exhibit. February 22 to May 28, 2008.

Owner: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
