Pia Camil: Here Comes the Sun
November 8, 2019 @ 7:30 pm$15
Join artist Pia Camil for a festive evening in celebration of her project Here Comes the Sun (2019), a fabric sculpture created for the Guggenheim’s iconic rotunda on the occasion of the museum’s 60th anniversary. Created through a process of exchange with largely Latinx communities in East Harlem and Corona, Queens, this new work incorporates over two hundred T-shirts, most donated by project participants. The reception will include a communal activation of the sculpture, as well as music, family activities, and a cash bar.
Here Comes the Sun (2019) is commissioned by the Guggenheim Museum’s Latin American Circle, a dynamic group of art collectors involved in contemporary art and culture in Latin America. This project has been produced with the support of the East Harlem Culture Collective and the Queens Museum of Art, where Camil’s exhibition Fade into Black: Sit, chill, look, talk, roll, play, listen, give, take, dance, share is on view from October 6, 2019, through February 16, 2020.
$15, $10 members and students. Tickets available beginning in October on guggenheim.org.
