The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is the result of a unique process of collaboration between the Basque authorities and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, based largely on the complementary nature of their resources. The Basque authorities provided political and cul- tural backing, along with the financing that enabled the Museum to be built and to operate, while the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation contributed its collections of Modern and contemporary art, its programs of special exhibitions, and its experience in the administration continued on page 4East side of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. 3
