The Guggenheim Bilbao is the building that changed the fortunes of a city, and made Bilbao one of the cultural centres of Europe. This architectural icon and bastion of high art turned 20 in October 2017, and commissioned a new public artwork from 59 Productions to celebrate that anniversary.
Using entirely original music, sound, light and projection, Frank Gehry’s astonishing titanium-clad building is augmented and transformed in a 20 minute show, repeating for three hours an nigh over four nights in a spectacle accessible to citizens of Bilbao and tourists alike.
The technical and creative challenges make this on of 59’s most exciting commissions to date.
