American Fine Art Magazine - - Museum News - www.guggenheim-venice.it

Through Septem­ber 3, the Peggy Guggen­hiem Col­lec­tion presents an ex­hi­bi­tion that il­lu­mi­nates the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the forms and de­sign of pre-columbian mon­u­ments and the art of Joseph Al­bers. Joseph Al­bers in Mex­ico presents a se­lec­tion of rarely shown early paint­ings and iconic can­vases from Al­bers’ Homage to the Square and Vari­ant/adobe series, along with works on pa­per. It also in­cludes a se­lec­tion of pho­tographs and pho­to­col­lages cre­ated by Al­bers in re­sponse to fre­quent vis­its to Mex­i­can ar­chae­o­log­i­cal sites from the 1930s and be­yond.
