Works & Process at the Guggenheim
Since 1984, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process at the Guggenheim, a performing-arts series that informs artistic creation through stimulating conversation and performance, is presented in the Guggenheim’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed, 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. Each season Works & Process champions new works and offers unprecedented access to leading creators and performers. After most programs, you are invited to continue the conversation with the artists at a food-and-wine reception.
