Founded in 1937, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation is dedicated to promoting the understanding and appreciation of art, primarily of the modern and contemporary periods, through exhibitions, education programs, research initiatives, and publications. The global network that began in the 1970s when the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, was joined by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, has expanded to include the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (opened 1997), the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin (1997–2013), and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi currently in development. Each constituent museum unites 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.
Selections from the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao Collection IV is the final installment in a series of four exhibitions that began in 2010 with the aim of contextualizing the works in the Guggenheim Bilbao collection, while providing a comprehensive overview of its holdings that currently boast 128 artworks by 73 artists.
The Guggenheim Foundation has engaged London-based Malcolm Reading Consultants to manage the architectural competition for the proposed Guggenheim Helsinki museum.
