Bringing together over one hundred works from the Guggenheim’s contemporary collection, this group exhibition examines how artists today forge new paradigms for storytelling through installation, painting, photography, sculpture, video, and performance. On display in the rotunda, the works—most made after 2005—move beyond conventional plot, character, and mise-en-scène to engage diverse histories embedded in mundane materials and found objects.
This retrospective surveys the searing, deeply poetic work of Doris Salcedo, featuring the artist’s most significant series from the late 1980s to the present, as well as a video documenting her remarkable site-specific public projects and architectural interventions.
A pioneer of abstract art and eminent aesthetic theorist, Vasily Kandinsky (1866–1944) broke new ground in painting during the first decades of the twentieth century. Perhaps more than any other twentieth-century painter, Kandinsky has been linked to the history of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
This presentation, composed of selected materials from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Archives, pays homage to the first Frank Lloyd Wright–designed structures in New York City.
Justin K. Thannhauser was the son of renowned art dealer Heinrich Thannhauser, who founded the Galerie Moderne in Munich in 1909. From an early age, Thannhauser worked with his father, building an impressive program of exhibitions of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism and the art of the contemporary French and German avant-gardes. The Thannhausers’ commitment to promoting artistic progress paralleled the vision of Solomon R. Guggenheim. In recognition of this shared spirit, Justin Thannhauser ultimately bequeathed a significant portion of his art collection—including masterpieces by Cézanne, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Pissarro, Renoir, and van Gogh—which is on view in a dedicated gallery, to the Guggenheim Museum.
