PEGGY'S FIR­ST BIEN­NA­LE

Where Venice - - Where Now | Hot Dates -

In 1948, Peggy Guggenheim was in­vi­ted to ex­hi­bit her al­rea­dy le­gen­da­ry art col­lec­tion at the 24th Art Bien­na­le in Ve­ni­ce. It was a land­mark event and the fir­st-ever sho­wing of Peggy's col­lec­tion in Eu­ro­pe. This event brought the works of nu­me­rous in­ter­na­tio­nal ar­tists, al­mo­st un­k­no­wn at that ti­me, to the Lagoon ci­ty.

2018 marks the 70th an­ni­ver­sa­ry of the ex­hi­bi­tion of Peggy Guggenheim's col­lec­tion in the Greek Pa­vi­lion at the re­no­w­ned Ve­ni­ce Bien­na­le. The lay­out of the pa­vi­lion, de­si­gned by Car­lo Scar­pa, an emi­nent ar­chi­tect of the ti­me, has been re­crea­ted to­day in the Pro­ject Rooms.
