Guggenheim Museum Bilbao


The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao is simply stunning. Few exhibits can compete with the architecture and last week one whole floor was closed for a changover anyway.

Outside, Louise Bourgouise’s giant spider ( “Maman” ) looks great against the background of the pedestrian area alongside the river. Last time I saw it here I thought it must have been on its travels from the Tate Modern but then it reappeared in London ( as witnessed by the jellyART Club outing last summer ) and it’s still in Bilbao so I conclude there may have been more than one sculpture cast from the same moulds, although I can’t be sure of this.

    That is lovely!
    Do you have the ability to record sound or add music?

    Hi Chuck.
    You must have visited from videobloggers – that’s cool.
    The movie clips were recorded with a silent camera. I’ve never added a soundtrack with Quicktime, but have done so in iMovie before. It takes a whole lot more creative effort to get the sound right, so on this vlog there are quite a lot of silent clips.
