studiodanreiser for Guggenheim Museum
Engineering and Fabrication
Working in tandem with the Guggenheim Bilbao, Dan Reiser provided an updated exhibition design plan for the reconfiguration of Infinity Environment, a work by the artist Doug Wheeler. The work had previously been realized in Los Angeles on a much smaller scale in the 1970s.
Reiser ensured its installation as part of the Guggenheim Bilbao’s Panza Collection show was in keeping with the artist’s intent while integrating seamlessly into the flow of the overall exhibition.
The goal was to recreate Doug Wheller's sculpture in the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao at a much larger scale and in collaboration with the artist to achieve his vision.
The process was complex. They involved architects, engineers, and artisans teams in Bilbao, Spain. It involved specialized lighting and creating a whole new method of fabrication to produce the effects of the sculpture. This was a global effort operation in New York City and Bilbao, Spain.
