The Guggenheim Experience
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is among the most important museums in Italy for European and American art of the first half of the 20th century. It is located in Peggy Guggenheim's former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice. The museum presents Peggy Guggenheim's personal collection, masterpieces from the Hannelore B. and Rudolph B. Schulhof collection, a sculpture garden as well as temporary exhibitions. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is owned and operated by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, which also operates the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
OSVALDO LICINI. Let Sheer Folly Sweep Me Away
September 22, 2018 – January 14, 2019
Eleven exhibition galleries and over one hundred works retrace the disruptive and tormented artistic path of Osvaldo Licini (1894 – 1958), a major protagonist of Italian and international modernism, as confirmed by the award conferred a few months before his death at the Venice Biennale in 1958. Sixty years after that important recognition the museum commemorates Licini with the long-awaited retrospective curated by Luca Massimo Barbero. INFO
