Spain, Bilbao – Guggenheim – more architecture than art

The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao has always been on my must visit list and I was not disappointed with the building. It is a fantasy of soft metallic curves with light flooding in from all directions and a different feel depending on what angle you look at it. The setting next to the river and close to two bridges which have extraordinary designs works well too.

The art itself was mixed. There was an interesting Chagall exhibit and also one of modern Chinese artists – mostly video – but annoyingly they do not allow any photos of art exhibits – kind of strange in this day and age?
