Guggenheim Museum Spring Exhibition Calendar


Family Pictures February
9–April 16, 2007
Family Pictures, an exhibition drawn from the museum’s collection, explores the representation of families and children in contemporary photography and video. Since its inception in the mid-19th century, photography has always been used to represent the bonds of family, whether through portraiture or documents of important familial milestones. In these images, fleeting moments of childhood are captured and preserved while the family unit is fixed for posterity. Family Pictures includes both documentary-style and staged work by contemporary artists including Janine Antoni, Patty Chang, Gregory Crewdson, Rineke Dijkstra, Anna Gaskell, Loretta Lux, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Tracey Moffatt, Catherine Opie, Thomas Struth, Hellen van Meene, and Gillian Wearing. This exhibition first appeared at the Galleria Gottardo in Lugano, Switzerland; in New York, Family Pictures will reflect additional artists and recent acquisitions.


The Hugo Boss Prize 2006: Tacita Dean
February 23–June 6, 2007
An exhibition of the work of Tacita Dean, winner of the HUGO BOSS PRIZE 2006, will be on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum from February 23 through June 6, 2007. The exhibition will encompass such diverse media as drawing, sound, and found photographs in addition to the compelling 16mm films for which Dean is best known and which, while focusing on architectural relics, portraiture, history, and memory, investigate cinematic mechanisms and materials. Established in 1996, the HUGO BOSS PRIZE is a biennial award presented by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation to an artist whose work represents a significant development in contemporary art. Dean was selected by an international jury of curators from a shortlist that included: Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla, John Bock, Damián Ortega, Aïda Ruilova, and Tino Sehgal. Previous recipients of the HUGO BOSS PRIZE are: Matthew Barney (1996), Douglas Gordon (1998), Marjetica Potrč (2000), Pierre Huyghe (2002), and Rirkrit Tiravanija (2004).

Divisionism/Neo-Impressionism: Arcadia and Anarchy

April 27–August 6, 2007
Divisionism/Neo-Impressionism: Arcadia and Anarchy explores the optically vibrant paintings executed by the Italian Divisionists during the late 19th century and, for the first time, examines their relationship to Neo-Impressionism. Artists from both these movements subscribed to a painting technique rooted in color theories, held left-wing political views, and pursued similar subject matter, from idyllic landscapes to society’s problems. Arcadia and Anarchy underscores the Italians’ autonomy from their European counterparts and their importance as pioneers of modernism. Organized by Vivien Greene, Associate Curator, this focused exhibition of 40 works will take place from January 27 to April 15, 2007, at the Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, and from April 27 to August 6, 2007, at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. The exhibition will be the first presentation on the Divisionists in Germany or the United States.
