The Cai Guo-Qiang retrospective, “I Want to Believe,” opens February 22 at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The exhibit represents the first solo show by a Chinese-born artist at the Museum.
The comprehensive survey chronicles his unique visual vocabulary encompassing his gunpowder drawings reaching lengths of 100 feet, explosion events caught on video, photographs, and preparatory drawings. Large-scale installations, including a version of Inopportune: Stage One (2004) comprised of nine exploding cars suspended in the central void of the rotunda will also be on view.
