Guggenheim Foundation

Guggenheim Foundation Global Network

Founded in 1937, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation is committed to innovation by collecting, preserving, and interpreting modern and contemporary art, while simultaneously exploring ideas across cultures through exhibitions, educational and curatorial initiatives, publications, and digital platforms. Dedicated to engaging both local and global audiences, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation has built an international community of architecturally and culturally distinct museums. Initiated in the 1970’s by the addition of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, this international network has since incorporated the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (opened 1997), the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin (1997–2013), and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, currently in development. Each museum in the Guggenheim constellation combines distinguished architecture with great artworks, a tradition that has become a Guggenheim hallmark. Looking to the future, the Guggenheim Foundation continues to forge international collaborations that take contemporary art, architecture, and design beyond the walls of the museum.
