ABU DHABI // The Guggenheim Abu Dhabi will change the cultural landscape of the region and the world, the head of the prestigious New York museum has predicted.

“It will bring a different audience to Abu Dhabi from Asia, Europe and North America,” said Richard Armstrong, director of the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum and Foundation.

“With their increasing exposure to the UAE there is a very strong possibility that the world’s perception of the city, the country and the region will also change for the better.”

Outside New York, the Guggenheim already operates in Venice and Bilbao. Abu Dhabi, said Mr Armstrong, “will be the third, the largest and the most connected to contemporary art exclusively and therefore possibly the most radical and, of course, it will have a tremendously memorable building”.
