Happy birthday to sculptor Louise Nevelson, born on this day in 1899. Nevelson's monochromatic wooden assemblages alinged her with many contemporary artists who embraced found objects to create what has become known as Junk art. Nevelson's play of vertical and horizontal zigzags in "Luminous Zag: Night" (1971), create a complicated rhythmic pattern that appears to be inspired by jazz music and its emphasis on improvisation within an established structure.

The invention of radiography was significant for František Kupka, born on this day in 1871. A kind of painterly X-ray vision is captured in his work "Planes by Colors, Large Nude," (1909-10), depicting the figure of his wife in vivid shades of purple, green, yellow, and blue. Kupka devised an innovative modeling technique based on color, not line or shade, that sections her body into tonal planes in such a way that her “inner form” is made visible.

Happy birthday to #MaurizioCattelan, court jester of the art world! Last week we unveiled Maurizio Cattelan: "America," a fully functional 18-karat gold toilet available for use in one of the museum's public restrooms. The toilet offers a wink to the excesses of the art market but also evokes the American dream of opportunity for all. Cattelan has joked before that this is “one-percent art for the ninety-nine percent,” though he prefers to allow the audience to interpret the work. Never miss a blog post by signing up to our weekly Guggenheim Blogs e-mail: http://gu.gg/Exjz304qFvI 
“America”—the first piece that Maurizio Cattelan has exhibited since his 2011 retrospective at the Guggenheim—is a working toilet cast from gold. Have a seat, won’t you?

Prudencio Irazabal’s paintings revel visually in a Pop-like pure form that makes them feel instantaneous and immediate. In Irazabal’s “Untitled #767” (1996), even though the vivid red color seems monochromatic, the sides show thick superimposed strata of transparent acrylic paint, which discreetly reveal Irazabal's creative process to the viewer, as well as the origin of the deep, enigmatic light that shines in his paintings.

Each week we will be showcasing works from the Guggenheim collection throughout New York Textile Month. #nytm

"Five years ago, the artist Maurizio Cattelan announced his retirement from art by hanging virtually everything he had done—a hundred and twenty-eight startling objects and images—from the skylight at the top of the Guggenheim Museum’s spiral atrium. Last week, in a small rest room about two-thirds of the way up the spiral, the Guggenheim installed the first work of his un-retirement: a celestially glowing, fully functional, eighteen-karat solid-gold toilet. And, for viewers who crave a one-to-one relationship with art, this piece cannot be topped."—via +The New Yorker : http://gu.gg/UtAn304m0A9
