Migrating Objects: Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection
Exclusive guided visits, reserved for Members when the museum is closed, reservations necessary, limited to 5 people per time slot.
Peggy Guggenheim challenged boundaries as a patron and collector and is celebrated for her groundbreaking European and American modern art collection. Migrating Objects: Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection focuses on a lesser-known, but crucial episode in Guggenheim’s collecting: her turn in the 1950s and ’60s to works created by artists in Africa, Oceania, and the indigenous Americas.
