Cai Guo-Qiang's "Importune: Stage One"

2nd NE Quadrant\The Approval Matrix: Week of March 3, 2008

















For "Importune: Stage One," nine white Chevrolets are arranged within the Guggenheim -- one on the ground floor, another on the top ramp and seven dangling in mid-air. The work is meant to mimic the impact of a car bomb, with the nine cars representing the trajectory of one car ricocheting through the center of the museum.
