To our followers in Spain. Don't miss at @museoguggenheim Bilbao through September 2, "Gerhard Richter: Seascapes". This is the first exhibition to present a broad variety of these works, in which the artist relies both on traditional sources as well as the popular snapshots taken while on vacation, in order to present a reflection on nature and visual perception. Through these paintings and drawings, Richter forces us to face the problem of representation, merging the painted surface and the photographic record into one. #RichterGuggenheimBilbao#Guggenheim

Venice, summer 1990 - “[..] And it was like a dream, escaping from the hot streets full of life to come in the palazzo, turned gallery, full of calm, deep shades from the garden playing silhouettes on the gallery walls, quietly observing visitors from around the world admiring artworks in semi silence [..].The art call I felt visiting Peggy Guggenheim museum for the first time meant a lot to me. Many years later I’ve discovered the great passion in my life is art [..]. Now I wish your Museum continues to be inspirational cultural institution, open to everybody to inspire across the boundaries of geography, politics, generations, gender, for many more years to come” - Tamara Kralj Jare, Slovenia #MyPeggyGuggenheimCollection#PointOfView .

Thanks to her vivid story telling she recounts her daily life set in the context of both a multi-cultural European and American backdrop.
