Works & Process at the Guggenheim is pleased to announce its fall 2017 season and opens the season with a commissioned performance made in and for the museum rotunda. Since 1984 the performing-arts series has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to leading creators and performers. Each intimate, 80-minute performance combines artistic creation with stimulating conversation, and takes place in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright-designed, 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. The New York Times describes Works & Process as “a popular series devoted to shedding light on the creative process.” Additional information is available at
