THEMS & VARIATIONS. FROM THE MARK TO ZERO
JASON MARTIN. VIGIL

March 21 May 17, 2009
Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice

VIRTUAL TOUR

Exploring the Peggy Guggenheim Collection’s holdings of post war painting and sculpture, and adding to this loans from other collectors, Luca Massimo Barbero explores variations on the theme of the mark: as code, grid, referent, citation, alphabet and expression, arriving eventually at the condition of zeroing: the monochrome, the blank and the void. The British artist Jason Martin, among the most interesting painters of the generation of the Young British Artists, interprets the theme in a small solo-exhibition: creating a zero point of painting in a vibrant space in which an infinity of pictorial possibilities co-exist.

ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG: GLUTS
30 May 20 September 2009
Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice

VIRTUAL TOUR

Robert Rauschenberg: Gluts will feature a selected group of approximately forty sculptures drawn from the holdings of institutions and private collections in the United States and abroad. After breaking boundaries with his celebrated Combines, in the late 1950s, his explorations of technology-based art that made viewers active participants in the 1960s, and his focus on natural-fiber materials of paper, cardboard, and fabric throughout the 1970s, Rauschenberg’s artistic attention in the 1980s turned toward an exploration of the visual properties of metal. Assembling found metal objects such as gas-station signs, deteriorated automotive and industrial parts littering the landscape, he transformed the scrap-metal detritus into wall reliefs and freestanding sculptures that recalled his earlier Combines. Thus he created the Gluts, sculptural works begun in 1986 and continued intermittently until 1995. Visitors can enjoy free guided visits of the temporary exhibitions, daily at 3:30 p.m.

PRENDERGAST IN ITALY
10 October 2009 10 January 2010
Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice

VIRTUAL TOUR

This exhibition will assemble for the first time the major works by American artist, Maurice Prendergast, during two trips to Italy (1898-99 and 1911-12): a body of work that is one of the most attractive and revealing in the story of American art. The exhibition brings together approximately seventy-five of his Italian watercolors, oils, and monotypes as well as photographs, films, guidebooks, and travel advertisements that situate the work within the new visual culture that Americans had embraced by 1900. The presentation of Prendergast’s works in Italy where they were created offers a new point of interest, and contributes to the comprehension of what characterized Modernism in the early 20th century and of the role Prendergast played in the development of Modern art in America. The exhibition is organized by the Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, Massachusetts, in partnership with The Terra Foundation for American Art, Chicago, Illinois.
