POSTWAR ERA. A RECENT HISTORY HOMAGES TO JACK TWORKOV AND CLAIRE FALKENSTEIN

G.9.90186

The exhibition, curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, offers a fresh, analytical look at postwar American and European art through 1979, the year of Peggy Guggenheim death. Paintings and sculptures, works both from Peggy Guggenheim’s collection and from donations to the Foundation’s Venice museum, some rarely exhibited, are assembled in clusters and arranged according to theme, style, affinity, and an unconventional chronology, bringing together threads of sensibility that go beyond avant-garde movements and historical tendencies.

Among the works exposed, the drawing of Francesco Somaini Etna magico. Le pietre nere, ink on paper, dated 1999.
