In 2019, when our galleries hosted Jenny Holzer. Thing Indescribable, the artist donated three works to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, adding to the five that were already part of the Museum Collection.

For Bilbao is one of these three works. It consisted in the projection of 169 texts by 19 Basque, Spanish and international poets on the voluptuous contours of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao on the early days of the Holzer exhibition held at the Museum in 2019. The words in Basque, Spanish and English slid over the titanium tiles.
