Haunted: at the Guggenheim

Was able to see the new photo show at the Guggenheim yesterday. It is a very interesting overview/cross-section of all kinds of photo based work under the big umbrella of the title, Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance. I could have done without the title, which I find a bit of a stretch on some work. But what the heck. I can justify just about any work under a big umbrella. My favorite piece was  by Tacita Dean, titled Merce Cunningham performs STILLNESS (in three movements) to John Cage’s composition 4’33” with Trevor Carlson, New York City, 28 April 2007 (six performances; six films), 2008
Six 16mm color films, installation, with sound, 4 min., 33 sec. each, edition 2/4

Here is a link to a review by Holland Cotter when the piece was shown at Dia:Beacon in 2008.

I should go back to spend more time with this one.
