While the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi is still under construction, the museum has already started having exhibitions in other venues. Its second exhibition, “The CreativeAct: Performance, Process, Presence” was held later last year. This group exhibition showcased artists from different cultures who practiced from the 1960s to present day and created works that respond to performances pieces, the artistic process or the artist’s presence. Individuals such as Anish Kapoor, Giovanni Ozzola, Hasaan Sharif and Tanaka Atsuko were just a few of the artists on view.
