Peggy Guggenheim Collection

An avant-garde summer  
the Peggy Guggenheim Collection

9 June - 16 September 2012

One museum, two shows, over fifty works from two movements of the avant-garde that distinguished the history of twentieth century art: Cubo-Futurism and Surrealism. This summer the Peggy Guggenheim Collection presents the work of two painters: Jean Metzinger (1883 - 1956), French Cubist, and Charles Seliger (1926 - 2009), American Surrealist.

From 9 June through 16 September 2012, the museum's exhibition galleries will be shared between two exhibitions. Cycling, Cubo-Futurism and the Fourth Dimension. 'At The Cycle-Race Track' by Jean Metzinger is centred on Metzinger's painting of 1912, an important work of Parisian Cubism in the collection of the Venice museum, while Seeing the World Within: Charles Seliger in the 1940s is the first show in Europe dedicated to the innovative paintings created by Seliger at the beginning of his career.
