The Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the 2021 Sustainable Development Festival

I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want.

Andy Warhol

Palazzo Venier dei Leoni officially opened its doors as a museum in 1980. Since that time, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection with its many activities, exhibitions and public programs, has pursued its mission of educating the public by highlighting issues such as quality education, social inclusion, gender equality, and respect for cultural heritage and the environment. In 2018 it joined ASviS, the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development, which is responsible for promoting the 17 Goals of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This year it also joins the Sustainable Development Festival, promoted by ASviS and now in its fifth edition, sharing content with its audience to reflect on a number of goals on the agenda.

Giacomo Balla, "Abstract Speed + Sound" (1913-14)

Giacomo Balla’s disruptive painting moves beyond the canvas and onto the frame, thus conveying the idea of a boundless art that moves beyond the walls of the museum. Art can be a catalyst, as well as a point of reflection, for discovering new ways of interpreting the world.
