Part of the unique partnership between Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, this ambitious program of contemporary art commissions continues with Anish Kapoor's installation, Memory. The fourteenth commission project to be completed since the program's inception, Memory was originally displayed at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin and will come to New York's Guggenheim Museum in October 2009. Memory is described as “an intervention in the gallery that prevents any one complete viewing or experience of the work. Fabricated of 24 tons of rusting Cor-Ten steel, with industrial tiles and bolts exposed, the sculpture loosely resembles a balloon or egg-shaped object. The sculpture’s steel surface engages the extremities of two of the gallery walls, including the ceiling, with the utmost precision.” This is the Guggenheim Foundation's first collaboration with this celebrated artist, and the continuation of a strong partnership between Kapoor and Deutsche Bank.
