Works & Process at the Guggenheim Releases Virtual Commissions Schedule Through First Half of May

To financially support artists and nurture their creative process during these challenging times, Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, announces Works & Process Virtual Commissions.

Artists from a wide variety of genres have been commissioned to create new works, less than 5 minutes long, while observing social distancing guidelines, that will premiere on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube (@worksandprocess) every Sunday and Monday at 7:30pm.

Chris Celiz and Anthony Rodriguez kicked off the series on April 19 and 20:

BalletX Partnership

The current circumstances no longer permit the Works & Process on June 14, featuring BalletX summer offerings, including a glimpse into the creative process of choreographers Hope Boykin, Rena Butler, Calli Quan and Penny Saunders. To continue to support these choreographers, their creative process, and company dancers, Works & Process Virtual Commissions in partnership with BalletX will provide the resources for the choreographers to workshop solos and duets (for dancers sheltering together), using Zoom video conferencing with dancers from BalletX. These works will premiere on Works & Process social media channels on June 14 and 15 at 7:30pm.

Details are available at and the commissions will broadcast on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
