Tim Wilson is with Max Gimblett as he becomes the first New Zealand artist to go on display at New York's Guggenheim museum.

Securing an exhibition at the guggenheim is the Holy Grail for the modern artist.

The building itself is an architectural wonder... A cross between a cream cake and a gun turret dropped in the middle of manhatten
Opened in 1950, the building is an archetural wonder and is widely regarded as one of the best art museums in the world.

Not a single piece of new zealand art has ever hung on its hallowed walls... until now.
