Cai Guo-Qiang: I Want to Believe
Cai Guo-Qiang: I Want to Believe at the Guggenheim Museum. "...Cai Guo-Qiang has literally exploded the accepted parameters of art making in our time. Drawing freely from ancient mythology, military history, Taoist cosmology, extraterrestrial observations, Maoist revolutionary tactics, Buddhist philosophy, gunpowder-related technology, Chinese medicine, and methods of terrorist violence, Cai’s art is a form of social energy, constantly mutable, linking what he refers to as 'the seen and unseen worlds.' This retrospective presents the full spectrum of the artist’s protean, multimedia art in all its conceptual complexity."
