A new exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum mixes visual art with writing:
“Storylines” is about the resurgence of narrative in the visual arts, but it is also about how writers still love to write about the things artists make. In a moment of inspiration, the exhibition’s curators got thirty novelists and poets, from John Ashbery to Jeanette Winterson, to write creative responses to the works in the show. These responses are available in booklet form as you walk in, or through an app, and they’re collected on an inviting Web site. Fifteen are also available on audio, with the writers reading their work.
