Drawn from the museum’s holdings of early modern art, Broken Forms: European Modernism from the Guggenheim Collection explores artistic developments immediately preceding and during World War I. From Germany and France to Italy and Russia, artists such as Giacomo Balla, Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian, and Pablo Picasso pioneered revolutionary approaches to art making. While some experimented with the concept of fragmentation and simultaneity, choosing to deal with themes such as technological development and the spectacle of the changing city, others sought to express subjective emotions and inner psychological truths through their art. The masterpieces in this exhibition include examples of Cubism, Cubo-Futurism, Expressionism, and other avant-garde movements that are central to the Guggenheim’s collection. This exhibition is curated by Tracey Bashkoff, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, and Megan Fontanella, Assistant Curator.
