“My exhibition had enormous publicity and the pavilion was one of the most popular of the Biennale.  I was terribly excited by all this, but what I enjoyed most was seeing the name of Guggenheim appearing on the maps in the public gardens next to the names of Great Britain, France, Holland, Austria, Switzerland, Poland . . . I felt as though I were a new European country.” Peggy Guggenheim [Out of this Century]. On view through November 25, in our Project Rooms “1948: The Biennale of Peggy Guggenheim” curated by Gražina Subelyte (@gsubelyte), an homage exhibition that celebrates the 70th anniversary of the exhibition of the collection of Peggy Guggenheim in the Greek Pavilion at the 24th Venice Biennale (@labiennale). #PeggyGuggenheim #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

“[…] but we visited pyramids, enormous ones and small ones, somewhat out of the way, that left us in awe of the great concepts of their architecture [..]” – Anni Albers. Opening on Saturday, May 19, “Josef Albers in Mexico”(through Sept. 3) an exhibition illuminating the relationship between the forms and design of pre-Columbian monuments and the art of Josef Albers (1888 - 1976). The exhibition includes a rich selection of photographs and photocollages, many of which have never before been on view and were created by Albers in response to frequent visits to Mexican archaeological sites beginning in the 1930s, together with his wife Anni. #JosefAlbers #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

"Once an object has been incorporated in a picture it accepts a new destiny" - Born on this day Georges Braque, French painter who worked together with Picasso in developing Cubism. From our collection his painting "The Clarinet", probably executed in the late summer of 1912, during the waning moments of Analytic Cubism. Characteristic of this period are the oval format, which frees the canvas from the stringencies of corners, the appearance of letters within the image, and the use of imitation wood grain as trompe l’oeil (a technique Georges Braque introduced into the Cubist repertory) #GeorgesBraque #PeggyGuggenheimCollection
