Vasily Kandinsky: Around the Circle at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, October 8, 2021 – September 5, 2022
“The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents Vasily Kandinsky: Around the Circle. Drawing from the Guggenheim’s exceptional collection of works by Kandinsky, the exhibition features approximately eighty paintings, watercolors, and woodcuts, as well as a selection of his illustrated books, spanning the artist’s earlier years in Russia and Germany and through his exile in France at the end of his life. The presentation, installed along the midsection of the museum’s spiral rotunda, reconsiders Kandinsky’s career not as a fixed path from representation to abstraction, but as a circular passage through persistent themes centered around the pursuit of one dominant ideal: the impulse for spiritual expression.” — Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Presented concurrently with Vasily Kandinsky: Around the Circle is a solo exhibition that features the work of contemporary artist Etel Adnan, followed by solo exhibitions of the work of Jennie C. Jones, and Cecilia Vicuña.
Vasily Kandinsky: Around the Circle is organized by Megan Fontanella, Curator, Modern Art and Provenance.
