January 23–May 12, 2010
During the first decades of the twentieth
century, numerous painters and sculptors migrated to Paris, which had become the international nexus
for vanguard art. Bringing with them their diverse customs, these artists absorbed and contributed
to the latest creative developments, often fusing novel formal elements with aspects from their
respective local traditions. Although these artists did not adhere to a fixed style typical of a
school, they were united in their defiance of academicism.
Paris and the Avant-Garde: Modern Masters from the Guggenheim Collection will feature some thirty paintings from the Guggenheim Collection by such artists as Georges Braque, Marc Chagall, Robert Delaunay, Albert Gleizes, Juan Gris, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Joan Miró, and Yves Tanguy, among others, as well as showcase a significant group of sculpture by Constantin Brancusi and Alexander Calder. The exhibition is curated by Tracey Bashkoff, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, and Megan Fontanella, Assistant Curator.
This exhibition is supported by a grant from the Joseph and Sylvia Slifka Foundation. The Leadership Committee for Paris and the Avant-Garde: Modern Masters from the Guggenheim Collection is gratefully acknowledged.
