Since 1984 and in more than 300 productions, Works and Process at the Guggenheim has been a pioneer in creating groundbreaking and carefully crafted programs that provide unprecedented access to today’s leading performing artists, choreographers, composers, writers, directors, and poets. Each program blends performance, demonstration, and discussion among creative collaborators and explores the creative process. Following often sold-out performances in the intimate Frank Lloyd Wright–designed 285-seat theater, a reception for the audience and artists takes place in the museum’s rotunda.
