Change to Citizens and Kings Final Venue

Change to Citizens and Kings Final Venue

 

(NEW YORK, NY– January 26, 2007) The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum announced today that it is unable to present Citizens and Kings: Portraiture in the Age of David and Goya in New York in the Spring/Summer of 2007 as originally planned. This change is due to the extensive restoration of the museum’s exterior that is currently underway. It was only recently learned that the restoration will impact several interior ramps of the Frank Lloyd Wright building this summer, creating an inappropriate environment for the masterpieces of the exhibition. The decision to cancel the New York presentation was a very difficult one, reached only after lengthy and careful consideration of all the options.


The Guggenheim Museum, the Reunion des Musées Nationaux, Musée du Louvre, and the Royal Academy are actively working together to identify another highly prestigious venue for Spring/Summer 2007. A third venue will allow a larger audience to experience this remarkable and important exhibition, which has enjoyed both popular and critical acclaim.


Further information will be passed on as soon as available. The collaborating museums thank the lenders and the participating institutions once again for their invaluable support of this project.
