It’s not about how much space you have, but what you do with it, right? Even though some Manhattan renters might disagree with that statement, 10 artists—who, during the ’90s, claimed their medium was the exhibition space itself—are reuniting to make the most of the Guggenheim’s spiral rotunda with various site-specific pieces in theanyspacewhatever. From a rainforest to a rotating hotel room to a possible crime scene, the exhibit features just about anything you can imagine by artists including Angela Bulloch, Maurizio Cattelan, Liam Gillick, Pierre Huyghe, and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster.
