Press Release

Basque Artist Program, 2015–19

  • Dates: July 8–September 6, 2022
  • Curated by: Lucía Agirre and Geaninne Gutiérrez-Guimarães, curators, Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

As part of the Guggenheim Bilbao’s 25th Anniversary, the Museum presents the works of the ten Basque artists who have participated in the five editions to date of the Basque Artist Program that the Guggenheim Museums in Bilbao and New York launched jointly in 2015. Targeted at artists born or living in the Basque Country, every year this initiative, whose 2022 edition is currently open (deadline for registering is July 18), allows two emerging artists chosen by the curatorial teams of both museums to receive an intensive orientation on the New York art scene and get experience designed to foster exchange and professional development from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum team.

The ten emerging artists featured in this show are Raquel Asensi, Nora Aurrekoetxea Etxebarria, Helena Goñi, Jon Gorospe, Gala Knörr, Maite Pinto, Karla Tobar Abarca, Alain Urrutia, Cristian Villavicencio, and Diego Vivanco. In their works they address issues like identity, history, representation, and individual and collective memory through a diverse range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, video, site-specific installations, and performance.
