The first comprehensive survey in the United States of work by Danish artist Danh Vo (born in Vietnam, 1975) will fill the ramps of the Guggenheim’s rotunda, offering an illuminating overview of his production from the past 15 years. Vo’s work addresses sweeping themes of colonialism, capitalism, and religion as they are refracted through intimate personal narratives, with a particular focus on the legacy of military and cultural incursions into Vietnam by Western powers.
Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away will be on show from February 9 through May 9.
Sunday through Wednesday: 10 AM–5:45 PM
Friday: 10 AM–5:45 PM
Saturday: 10 AM–7:45 PM (Pay What You Wish: 5:45 PM–7:45 PM)
