Fall Culture Travel: The Guggenheim's American Mashup
Visit our Fall Culture Travel map to take advantage of what's left of fall--just because you're traveling for Thanksgiving doesn't mean you have to check your brain.
Photographer, painter and sculptor Richard Prince obviously lives in a different America than we do. How else could his massive multi-stage retrospective "Spiritual America," currently at New York City's much-scaffolded Guggenheim Museum, include threatening nurses, disembodied cars and Borscht Belt-style jokes written over canceled checks?
You'll probably love some of the series on display (like our favorites, the white-on-white collages incorporating "New Yorker" style cartoons) and hate others, but at least you'll walk out thinking. (And if you're jonesing for some classic modernism, there's a nifty selection of Kandinsky paintings from the permanent collection on display as well.)
