Vasily Kandinsky, a 20th -century Russian painter has 150 of his works in the Guggenheim Museum collection. This new exhibit examines the last eleven years of his life and the works reflect his move to the Parisian suburb Neuilly-sur-Seine. Instead of his characteristic primary colors, Kandinsky favored softer, pastel hues-pink, violet, turquoise, and gold-reminiscent of the colors of his Russian origins.
Carrie Mae Weems is a socially-motivated artist whose works invite contemplation on race, gender and class. Increasingly, she has broadened her view to include global struggles for equality and justice. Comprehensive in scope, this retrospective primarily features photographs, including the groundbreaking Kitchen Table Series (1990), but also presents written texts, audio recordings and videos.
This multidisciplinary exhibition examines the historical sweep of the movement from its inception with F. T. Marinetti's Futurist manifesto in 1909 through its demise at the end of World War II.
This exhibition, on view in a dedicated gallery, presents highlights from Justin Thannhauser's bequest of a significant portion of his art collection, including masterpieces by Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, Pierre Auguste Renoir, and Vincent van Gogh, to the Guggenheim Museum.
On October 22, 1953, 'Sixty Years of Living Architecture: The Work of Frank Lloyd Wright' opened in New York on the site where the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum would eventually be built. Two Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings were constructed specifically to house the exhibition: a temporary pavilion made of glass, fiberboard, and pipe columns; and a 1,700-square-foot, fully furnished, two-bedroom, model Usonian house representing Wright's organic solution for modest, middle-class dwellings. This presentation, composed of selected materials from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Archives, pays homage to these two structures. Aware of his lack of architectural recognition in New York City prior to the 1953 exhibition, Wright declared: "this house and the pavilion alongside it...represent a long-awaited tribute: the first Wright building[s] erected in New York City."
