Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict, film screening

Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art for a free film screening of Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict on Tuesday, June 5, 7:00pm in the Auditorium of the School of Science and Mathematics, 202 Calhoun Street.

A colorful character who was not only ahead of her time but who also helped to define it, Guggenheim was an heiress to her family’s fortune who became a central figure in the modern art movement. As she moved through the cultural upheaval of the twentieth century, she collected not only art but also artists. Her colorful personal history was intertwined with the careers of such figures as Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp, and countless others. While fighting through personal tragedy, she maintained her vision to build one of today’s most important collections of modern art, now enshrined in her Venetian palazzo. This film explores her impact on the art world and features input from several key contemporary artists and art-world luminaries.
