EXHIBITIONS CALENDAR 2011.

ANUARY 29 –MAY 15, 2011
THE VORTICISTS: REBEL ARTISTS IN LONDON AND NEW YORK, 1914 - 1918
Curators: Mark Antliff and Vivien Greene

This is the first exhibition devoted to this London-based movement to be presented in Italy, and the first to attempt to recreate the three Vorticist exhibitions mounted during World War I that served to define the group’s radical aesthetic for an Anglo-American public. The exhibition is co-organized by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham, NC, USA, and Tate Britain.

MAY 29 – OCTOBER 2, 2011
ILEANA SONNABEND. AN ITALIAN PORTRAIT

This exhibition looks at the Italian component of the Sonnabend collection, not just Italian painting and sculpture but the work of international artists whose art takes into account the traditions and landscape of Italy. Ileana Sonnabend’s love of Italy is the thread that ties the works in this exhibition, a love which was expressed through her dedication to building this collection.

OCTOBER 21, 2011 - JANUARY 8, 2012
