Thomas Krens leaves the Guggenheim... but was at TED

Posted by: Helen Walters on March 01, 2008

I confess I’ve been in something of a TED bubble so I missed the news that Thomas Krens stepped down from the directorship of the Guggenheim. Certainly, he made no mention of it in his speech yesterday, which is a bit weird, really. I haven’t got the official story but hear that he’ll still be working on the new Frank Gehry Guggenheim, part of the proposed Saadiyat Island cultural center in Abu Dhabi (for a look at many of the buildings, take a look at the wonderful slideshow my colleague, Reena Jana, put together on this and other interesting architectural propositions within Abu Dhabi). That makes sense, given that Saadiyat was the focus of Krens’ talk, though now I look back at it, perhaps his spin through important art in a museum context — which featured many of his own controversial shows — was also his way of running his own credits.
