Visionaries: Creating a Modern Guggenheim
Curator Megan Fontanella introduces „Visionaries: Creating a Modern Guggenheim,“ an exhibition featuring over 170 modern works from the Guggenheim’s collection. „Visionaries“ focuses on six pioneering collectors and patrons who brought to light some of the most significant avant-garde art of the late 19th through the mid-20th centuries. Visitors to the exhibition will learn about the museum’s founder, Solomon R. Guggenheim, and his wish to create “a monument of our own time.”
On view February 10–September 6, 2017, „Visionaries“ includes works by such iconic artists as Alexander Calder, Paul Cézanne, Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Fernand Léger, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and Vincent van Gogh, among many others.
