exhibition site

View the exhibition site for Art of Another Kind: International Abstraction and the Guggenheim, 1949–1960 and browse a selection of twenty of the nearly one hundred works from the exhibition by artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Alberto Burri, Asger Jorn, and Jackson Pollock. Read about their relationship to abstraction and how the artists challenged traditional concepts of subject, material, and process. Six stories, such as “Expanding the Sculpture Collection” and “Tastebreakers of the 1950s,” unfold while exploring the site. Each special selection showcases ephemera from the archives, including correspondence between director James Johnson Sweeney and artists he championed as “tastebreakers,” Jackson Pollock’s application for employment at the Museum of Non-Objective Painting (forerunner of the Guggenheim Museum), and vintage airline tickets from the director’s travels in pursuit of discovering new artists.
