It was so bad, we laughed. The building is interesting but not stupendous, and they have a few mildly interesting Pollocks. Other than that, empty. Granted we are cultural Neanderthals, but a pile of carped padding scraps, some kids drawings and some rope hanging? Go to the MOMO, Met or MNH. Horrible.

This is truly an embarrassment. There was no art on any wall in main walkway. A big screen with odd slow uninteresting video. 4 benches in case you wanted to see the videos. A complete waste of time and a rip off

Cairo to Johannesburg, Rome to Barcelona, Paris to Prague, St. Petersburg to Miami, London to Seattle.....I’ve been to museums and Galleries in many countries. The Guggenheim in New York rates as the most pretentious, over-rated counterfeit cultural pit I’ve had the displeasure of wasting time at. A couple of Jackson Pollocks does not a gallery make. Sad, pathetic and entirely worth missing. Exhibits were only on 2 of the 6 floors, yet 25 dollars of the 25 dollars for the ticket were gleefully accepted. Give this a wide berth. You will never get back, the hour you waste here. Never.

The Guggenheim is experimenting with exhibiting during Covid. Re-opened very recently. There were only 2 of the galleries with actual exhibits of art. The main 'attraction' was a large screen hung from the center of the 'atrium' entrance area. The films were interesting, but not quite what I was hoping to see. The building itself is stunning, and of course being on the East side of Central Park, the walk through the park to get there was delightful. No refreshments/water was available. But that may come as vaccines become more prevalent.

I admit, modern art isn’t always my thing, but I always try to review things based upon my expectations. I even honestly only went for the iconic skylight and architecture, which ended up being darkened due to the nature of their new exhibit, which focuses on videos. Art is in the eye of the beholder, but some of this stuff looks like piles of carpet remnants and just random ropes hanging. I don’t care about Pollock. I’ve seen enough Picasso and in my opinion, he’s overrated. There was actually nothing here that I cared about. Nothing moved me. And there was really barely anything there to see. I’ve been to the MET, AMNH, the Whitney, MoMA, MoMA PS1, the Museum of the City of NY, the NY Historical Society, The Brooklyn Museum, the Queens Museum, The American Folk Art Museum, the Museum of Sex, the Rubin, the JP Morgan Library. Many of them with cheaper or even free admission. The Guggenheim is hands down my LEAST favorite.
