Selections from the Collection of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao III is the third in a series of exhibitions planned for 2009 to 2013 featuring a selection of works from the Guggenheim Bilbao Collection\ , which currently comprises 124 works by 70 artists. This presentation will feature one of the main areas of the Guggenheim Bilbao Collection: pop art . A selection of works by Andy Warhol\, James Rosenquist\, Gilbert &\; G eorge\, Sigmar Polke\, Robert Rauschenberg\, and Jean-Michel Basquiat will spotlight not only members of the pop movement but also artists who represe nt the pop legacy or have had a conceptual or biographical relationship wit h this historic trend.


These works from the Guggenheim Bilbao Colle ction are set in context and share the gallery space with works of video an d film art by Andy Warhol\, Robert Rauschenberg\, and Gilbert &\; George on loan from other collections. The interaction between the moving image a nd two-dimensional formats allows visitors to appreciate a sense of the com plexity of the respective artistic practices. Together with these works\, t he Guggenheim Museum Bilbao will present one of the Museum's most recent ac quisitions\, the Smiles series (1994) by Alex Katz\, consisting of 11 large-format portraits of women painted in his signature flat style.
