In conjunction with fall exhibitions Picasso Black and White, the Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms, and Now's the Time: Recent Acquisitions, the Guggenheim announces a series of public programs.
Picasso Black and White Programs
Artist to Artist: Koons and Picasso
Friday, October 26, 6:30pm
Celebrated artist Jeff Koons discusses his enduring fascination with Pablo Picasso from a unique perspective as a fellow collector and creator. Paired in lively conversation with art historian and independent curator Pepe Karmel, New York University, this dialogue unfolds as an exploration of both artists' expansive artistic production, delving into themes of conflict and creation as framed by insightful parallels across media, scale, and time.
Picasso: A Conversation
Friday, November 2, 6:30pm
Carmen Giménez, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, Guggenheim Museum, and curator of Picasso Black and White, engages in conversation about the Spanish master and his lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette with Diana Widmaier Picasso, art historian, co-curator of Picasso and Marie-Thérèse L'Amour fou (Gagosian Gallery, New York, 2011), and granddaughter of the artist, and Gary Tinterow, Director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, as well as curator and author of notable Picasso exhibitions and publications.

Elaine Terner Cooper Education Fund: Conversations with Contemporary Artists
Hear from the most innovative international artists working today and learn about their creative process. Programs include a private reception and exhibition viewing with the artist.
Gabriel Orozco and Benjamin Buchloh
Tuesday, November 13, 6:30pm
Gabriel Orozco (b. 1962) explores traces of erosion, poetic encounters with mundane materials, and the ever-present tension between nature and culture in his sculptural and photographic installation for the Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms, on view from November 9, 2012–January 13, 2013. Benjamin Buchloh, Harvard University, joins Orozco in a discussion of his artistic practice.
R. H. Quaytman
Wednesday, November 28, 6:30pm
R. H. Quaytman's (b. 1961) paintings draw on the abstract, the photographic, and the site-specific to evoke a new grammar for painting. Quaytman organizes her paintings on wood panels into "chapters." The subject matter of each chapter is determined by the historical, archival, architectural, or social aspects of a specific site. A portion of the artist's work is included in Now's the Time: Recent Acquisitions on view from November 2, 2012–January 2, 2013.
For tickets, visit guggenheim.org/cca or call the Box Office at 212 423 3587. Free for students with valid ID and online registration at guggenheim.org/cca. Limited availability.
