Around the Circle: Fresh Perspectives on Abstraction


Taking its name from the Kandinsky painting Around the Circle, this series of three after-hours tours offers lively opportunities for the public to engage with the exhibition New Harmony: Abstraction between the Wars, 1919–1939. The first, led by art historian Pepper Stetler (Miami University of Ohio), presents recent scholarship on how the development of abstraction between the wars was a statement of unity and universalism. The second presents artist and composer R. Luke DuBois’s perspective on abstraction. In the third, Filip Noterdaeme and Paula Stuttman consider how conversation with museum educators shapes the viewing of classics from the Guggenheim collection in a two-way reflection on art.

A reception follows each tour.

$15, $10 members, $5 students and interns with valid ID.
