The Guggenheim presents the first U.S. retrospective of the artist, philosopher, and poet Lee Ufan, charting the artist's creation of a visual, conceptual, and theoretical language that has expanded the possibilities for sculpture and painting. For Lee, each artwork mediates a dynamic encounter between the viewer, object, and site that opens up "a realm of infinity where one can continuously bring one's self back to nothingness."

Venue Description: Celebrated worldwide as one of the most noteworthy art museums and architectural icons of the 20th century, the Guggenheim Museum is all together an essential cultural center, an educational institution, as well as the heart of an international network of museums. Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic inverted ziggurat leads visitors through a series of interconnected rooms and requires them to retrace their steps when exiting. Visitors can experience special exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, lectures by artists and critics, performances and film screenings, classes for teens and adults, and daily tours of the galleries led by experienced docents. Founded on a collection of early modern masterpieces, the Guggenheim Museum today is an ever-increasing institution devoted to the art of the 20th century and beyond. Through extraordinary exhibitions, education programs, research initiatives, and publications, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation achieves its mission of promoting the understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art and architecture, and the collection, conservation, and observation of the art of our time.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is located on the Upper East Side at 1071 Fifth Avenue (at 89th Street) and is open Sundays to Wednesdays from 10am-5:45pm, Fridays from 10am to 5:45pm, and Saturdays from 10am to 7:45pm. The Museum is closed on Thursdays and Christmas Day. Admission into the museum is $22 for adults, $18 for students and seniors (65 years and older) with valid ID. Children under twelve may enter free of cost. The museum is wheelchair accessible except for the High Gallery, located at the top of the first ramp, accessible by two low stairs. The first and second rotunda ramps offer partial views of the High Gallery. The last tickets are issued at 7:15pm.
