If you have been to the GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM in BILBAO...

Jump to last reply

In May 2006 I visited the Guggenheim in Bilbao and am still haunted by one “arrangement” – not a painting.

If I remember correctly, the exhibit was in a darkened room. On one wall was a video screen on which continually flashed different sacred texts – the Bible, Koran, Torah, Talmud, and a wide variety of oriental and occidental scripts.

In the room facing this wall were several (8 – 10?) hooded figures, kneeling in worship as these texts changed continually. I do not recall if there were any sounds associated with this display, but the effect was powerful.

I know that the Guggenheim has many temporary shows – not sure if this were one of them or if it is part of the permanent collection.

Anyone remember this exhibit?
