Guggenheim Art Classes 2018. La Biennale prima e dopo Peggy Guggenehim

The 1948 Biennale—where Peggy Guggenheim exhibited her collection—brought to Venice numerous, then-unknown, international artists and thus became a turning point. Classes will focus on art movements, artists, and curators who—before and after Peggy—contributed to this major artistic event through the 20th century.
