Rita Kernn-Larsen. Surrealist Paintings
25 February–26 June 2017
Curated by Gražina Subelytė
Project Rooms, Peggy Guggenheim Collection
Rita Kernn-Larsen (1904–1998) was a prominent Danish Surrealist artist, whom Peggy Guggenheim met in Paris in 1937 and invited to exhibit at her Guggenheim Jeune gallery in London the following year. This small, focused show will be the first important presentation of Kernn-Larsen’s Surrealist period outside her native Scandinavia, after the 1938 one-woman exhibition. The show will feature seven paintings, more than half exhibited at Guggenheim Jeune, including her Self-Portrait (Know Thyself) (1937), acquired by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in 2013.
Mark Tobey: Threading Light
6 May–10 September 2017
Curated by Debra Bricker Balken
Organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts, it will be the first comprehensive exhibition of Mark Tobey’s distinctive and original work in more than forty years and will provide further insight into his intriguing oeuvre and its complicated and contradictory receptions in the United States and abroad. Curated by independent scholar Debra Bricker Balken, the exhibition will include approximately eighty paintings from the late 1920s until his last works of the 1970s and will be accompanied by a catalogue published in English and Italian editions. Coinciding with the 57th Venice Biennale the exhibition will debut at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and then be presented at the Addison Gallery of American Art.
