Now on view—“But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa.” The exhibition features multimedia works that are interwoven with questions around the region’s colonial histories. As part of our Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, these works by 17 artists have recently been acquired for our permanent collection. Learn more: http://gu.gg/4nfaDC #GuggUBSMAP

For #ThrowbackThursday—explore archival ephemera from the art-theory magazine "The Fox." Though it ran for only three issues from 1975–76, in its short span the magazine contained some of the sharpest art writing of the period, and articulated new modes of artistic collaboration that shifted focus away from the idea of the individual creative genius.

Final day to see “Peter Fischli David Weiss: How to Work Better,” which gathers key examples from each of the Swiss artist duo’s most significant series, including films and videos, photographs, sculptures, slide shows, and installations. With deadpan wit and a playful but probing spirit, Fischli and Weiss topple our perceptions of everyday reality. They use unconventional materials like rubber, unfired clay, and polyurethane to make replicas of the most mundane objects, asking us to distinguish between what is real and what is not. They ponder questions great and small, and reject the seriousness of high art but find great depth and poetry in the most amateur of gestures. Learn more: http://gu.gg/4naie3

How do changes in geography and nationality affect artistic practice? For our Guggenheim UBS MAP blog, Dr. Alexandra MacGilp surveys curatorial initiatives in the United Arab Emirates—a region that is “a magnet for migration,” now hosting more than 75 nationalities.

To our followers in Venice, Italy, "Imagine. New Imagery in Italian Art 1960–1969" is now on view +Peggy Guggenheim Collection.  In Italy during the 1960s, at the height of the economic boom, artistic experimentation flourished at an unprecedented pace and intensity. The theme of the exhibition is how the figured image served to construct a new language of representation in a little known phase of Italian art history.

Curator Sara Raza was charged with diversifying our permanent collection with art from the Middle East and North Africa for the third phase of the Guggenhiem UBS MAP Global Art Initiative. “It was quite a challenge to bring together a study of these places that are so complex so I wanted to be driven by ideas as my organizing principle," she said, “I didn't go country by country…. With the exception of Iran and Turkey, all of the countries featured here have gone through some form of colonial treatment in recent centuries so that is an important theme. ... The works explore how the past informs the present." Read more via @ArtNet: http://gu.gg/4ndAu3

Artist Yves Klein was born on this day in 1928, known for his patented International Klein Blue (IKB). For Klein, IKB was a shade of blue that effectively unlocked the endless void of space, eradicating the division of earth and sky. This installation view shows his 1957 "Pure Blue Pigment" re-created for our 2014 exhibition "ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s." Learn more: http://gu.gg/4ncUfR

To our followers in Bilbao, "Windows on the City: The School of Paris, 1900–1945" is now on view at +Museo Guggenheim Bilbao. In the early 20th century, Paris was the capital of the avant-garde as artists from around the world settled in the City of Light, where they created new forms of art and literature in response to the rapid economic, social, and technological developments that were fundamentally transforming urban life. The exhibition features more than 50 masterpieces from the Guggenheim collection, including some of the most influential paintings and sculptures by Constantin Brancusi, Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay, Amedeo Modigliani, and Pablo Picasso.

American artist Cy Twombly was born this day in 1928. Enjoy "Untitled" (1961) from our collection, which like the rest of his paintings of the early 1960s consists of a white canvas upon which he has applied scribblings and scratches in a furious flurry of crayon, pencil, and paint: http://gu.gg/4n4awp

Don’t miss the final weekend to see “Peter Fischli David Weiss: How to Work Better,” featuring more than 300 sculptures, photographs, and videos, including “The Way Things Go” (1987)—arguably the duo’s most popular and widely viewed work. The film features everyday objects crashing, tipping, rolling, and exploding in what seems an unbroken half-hour sequence of transformative events. Peter Fischli explains, “When this sequence of moving objects is functioning then it’s good. When it’s nicely functioning, just on the edge of failure, then for us it’s beautiful.” #FischliWeiss is on view through April 27.
