I hope that Art of This Century will become a center where artists will be welcome and where they can feel that they are cooperating in establishing a research laboratory for new ideas … in serving the future instead of recording the past.

Peggy Guggenheim, Comunicato stampa, Art of This Century, New York, 1942

Peggy Guggenheim’s statement continues to inspire our mission when the doors of Palazzo Venier dei Leoni are open to visitors.

Hilla Rebay, artist and first director of the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, the forerunner of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, believed that by contemplating art we can change our behavior. In this time of uncertainty and constant change, we have understood the therapeutic and soothing power of art, which has become a source of comfort and inspiration uniting us even from a distance.

Be inspired and experience the museum online by following us on:
