The show

Curated by Gražina Subelytė and Karole PB Vail

In 2012, eighty post-war works were added to the collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, a legacy of Hannelore B. Schulhof (1922–2012), who collected the works together with her husband Rudolph B. Schulhof (1912–1999). The exhibition will be an opportunity to see the Schulhof Collection as a whole, with works exhibited and set up on the basis of the formal developments of the period. It will thus be possible to follow the steps between the movements and styles that develop from the end of the Second World War up to the 1980s. Abstract imagery, understood as research on color, form and space and their interrelationships, characterizes the post-war period and becomes the cornerstone of the Collection. The exhibition aims to celebrate how the Schulhof Collection, in crossing oceans and cultures, reflects the polyphony of the multiple artistic trends of the post-war period, while at the same time focusing on the history and vision of collecting of the Schulhof couple.
