Cai Guo-Qiang

I helped produce and film a mini-doc on artist Cai Guo-Qiang making four new gunpowder paintings at his studio.

Cai Guo-Qiang is one of six contemporary artists invited to explore the Guggenheim’s collection as a curator of the exhibition “Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection” . As part of his presentation, Cai produced new gunpowder paintings in homage to iconic abstract works in the Guggenheim collection. “Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection” is on view through January 12, 2020, at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.
