Paris And The Avant-Garde: Modern Paris And The Avant-Garde: Modern Masters From The Guggenheim Collection - January 23 Through May 12, 2010
During the first decades of the 20th century, numerous painters and sculptors migrated to Paris, which had become the international nexus for vanguard art. Bringing with them their various customs, these artists absorbed and contributed to the latest developments, often fusing new elements with aspects of their respective traditions in their works. While they did not adhere to one fixed style, typical of a "school," they united in defiance of academicism. Their artistic innovations, including Cubism and Surrealism, profoundly influenced generations of artists. Paris and the Avant-Garde: Modern Masters from the Guggenheim Collection will feature some 30 paintings by such artists as Georges Braque, Marc Chagall, Robert Delaunay, Albert Gleizes, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso and Yves Tanguy, among others, as well as showcase significant sculptures by Constantin Brancusi and Alexander Calder. The exhibition is curated by Tracey Bashkoff, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, and Megan Fontanella, Assistant Curator.
