January 11–February 19, 2012

During the renovation of Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, masterpieces from the permanent collection are on view in the galleries usually dedicated to temporary exhibitions. The installation of Peggy Guggenheim Collection works in the temporary exhibition space chronicles the avant-gardes that made an indelible mark on the history of 20th-century art, from Picasso to Pollock, traversing cornerstones of Modernism such as Futurism (with the works from the Gianni Mattioli Collection), the pittura metafisica of Giorgio de Chirico, European abstraction (Kandinsky and Mondrian), and Surrealism (Miró, Dalí, Magritte, and others).

During the renovation, tickets are €8 general admission and €5 for discounted entry; the museum is open regular hours (daily 10 am–6 pm; closed on Tuesdays), but will be closed on Monday, January 9, and Monday, February 20.
