Zaha Hadid
June 2 - August 23, 2006

Zaha Hadid is one of the world’s most visionary architects. She is the first woman to be awarded the distinguished Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004. Hadid is internationally known for her projects which have literally “shifted the geometry of buildings.” She will be creating a site specific work for the Solomon R. Guggenheim rotunda. The Iraqi-born, London-based architect has collaborated with Deutsche Bank on an installation for the recent 25th anniversary exhibit at Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin.

Deutsche Bank is delighted to be one of the sponsors of the 2006 Whitney. The lead sponsor of the Biennial is Altria. In addition to all the Biennial benefits, Deutsche Bank will also receive the benefit of sponsoring a unique conceptual art installation in Central Park at Wollman skating rink on Friday, October 14th at 6:30 p.m. in conjunction with the Public Art Fund.

The young, emerging and noteworthy French artist Pierre Huyghe* will transform the Wollman skating rink into his journey for a newly discovered, distant island in Antarctica. Global warming has opened new landscapes and the artist earlier this year set out on a journey to Antarctica to search for an unknown island and an encounter with a unique solitary creature-an albino penguin. The public art piece accompanied by a symphonic orchestra is based on this journey and will be filmed at dusk. This one of a kind experience is both a show and a film shoot, which will record both the show and the audience members who watch it, so that they could be part of the film. The film will then be shown at the Biennial, which opens in March, in its own gallery on the ground floor.

*Pierre Huyghe has recently moved to NYC, won the Hugo Boss Prize in 2002, received a Special Award from the Venice Biennale in 2001, and in 2006 will have solo shows at the Tate Modern and Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

David Smith: A Centennial
February 3 - May 14, 2006

David Smith: A Centennial is the first retrospective of the American artist's sculptures in New York since 1969, and the first in the United States since 1982. Our commitment to this show is linked in various ways to the exhibition Constantin Brancusi: The Essence of Things. Smith had the highest respect for that artist's work, and the impressive display of Brancusi's oeuvre in the Guggenheim Museum in 2004 was also curated by Carmen Giménez and made possible by Deutsche Bank.

Berlin Philharmonic
