The show

Curated by Gražina Subelytė

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the exhibition of the Peggy Guggenheim collection at the 24th Venice Biennale, in the Greek pavilion. To commemorate this disruptive moment in the history of twentieth century art, the museum presents 1948: the Peggy Guggenheim Biennale, an exhibition-tribute that aims to recreate the environment of the pavilion through documents, photographs, letters and a maquette that for the first volta reconstructs the spaces and the original layout of '48, designed by the eminent Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa, who collaborated with the Biennale from 1948 to 1972. The exhibition will offer the opportunity to re-examine this event as a watershed in Peggy's career and in history of the Venice Biennale itself. In fact, the collection offered Europeans the opportunity to catch up with the best results of the most recent avant-gardes, and to get to know the New York artists who would dominate the art scene of the 1950s.
