Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection

At the Guggenheim

Thru January 12, 2020


In the Guggenheim’s first artist-curated exhibition, six contemporary artists explore the museum’s collection, each creating a distinct thematic presentation

Highlights of the Collection


The Guggenheim has a rich collection of paintings that show the transition of avant-garde art from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century, from the fleeting light effects of Monet to the breakdown of illusionism and reavaluation of space, color and line in Cezanne and Picasso. Looking at masterworks from the most famous impressionist, post-impressionist, abstract, surrealist, and early modern artists, we will explore the great changes in art and perceptions of reality that led us into the modern age.

My kids and families tour at the Guggenheim can be adapted for any audience. You can find its theme here.
