Marguerite « Peggy » Guggenheim in Venice, Italy.

Artists’ major works abstract of European or American artists of the second half of the 20th century, being part of the collection of the Foundation Solomon R. Guggenheim from New York and Venice, are now to contemplate on the Royal Square to the Ing Art Center. This exhibition allows to discover quantities of paintings, sculptures or installations that were collected by Peggy and Solomon Guggenheim during their life. An uncle interested rather by abstracted works and a niece also collecting surrealist artists. Who will have been warned sponsors, having entailed many more other collectors in their trail. New York became at that time the center of creation for the modern art with artists who run away from the second world war and claim then for a total freedom of expression. With masterpieces exposed of Max Ernst, Paul Dubuffet, Alexander Calder, Lucio Fontana or Jackson Pollock among others, often shown for the first time in Belgium. And a particular accent is put on works realized between 1940 and 1960, thus being a member of the movement of the expressionistic abstraction. As well as the presence of about ten realizations of Jackson Pollock, which allow to glimpse better his artistic progress and to notice the influence of Pablo Picasso in its painting “Two”. Or still mobiles of Calder, who gives a playful and air interpretation in the balance of its works.

An exhibition that can be connected with the one nowadays displayed to Bozar until January 22nd, 2017, and called “The power of the Avant-Garde, now and then”. These two exposures cover periods and artistic movements of the same time and can be complementary to better understand art in the 20th century. These two exhibitions can be better followed thanks to the audio guide or the guided visite, and pursued by catalog them respective. A selection of artists who based their practice on surrealism and paved the way to abstraction, but a transatlantic artistic dialogue not to be missed.
