Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away Guggenheim Museum, New York
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change.
“Take My Breath Away,” Danh Vo’s first comprehensive survey in the United States, opens at the Guggenheim on Feb. 9. It will include works from the past 15 years and new projects created for the exhibition.
Vo’s installations dissect the power structures, cultural forces, and private desires that shape our experience of the world. His work addresses themes of religion, colonialism, capitalism, and artistic authorship, but refracts these sweeping subjects through intimate personal narratives—what the artist calls “the tiny diasporas of a person’s life.”
