That’s another not to be missed show at Peggy Guggenheim Museum! The exposition of 60 and more works (paintings and works on paper) is entitled “Capogrossi: a Retrospective“, but it include also operas from two other contemporary artists: Alberto Burri and Lucio Fontana (both italians).

Artist Lee Yong-Baek has been chosen to hold a solo presentation in the Korean Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale next year, announced by the Arts Council Korea.
With an itinerary through the three floors of Ca’ Pesaro – from the entrance hall and small room on the ground floor, to the monumental staircase, second floor and façade overlooking the Grand Canal – the exhibition offers forty works of art, in glass, bronze, steel, plastic, wood and stone, but also drawings, preparatory sketches and watercolours, spanning thirty years activity, from the 80s to nowadays, most of which have never been on show in Italy before.
Already anticipated by some of the artist’s works on display or “scattered” around the first floor, the exhibition covers all the vast space of the Museum’s second and shows large-sized canvases together with sculptures and other smaller sized works conceived by Marco Tirelli (Rome, 1956) especially for the museum.
The sculptures of Justin Peyser can be admired at the XVII century palace Ca’ Zenobio, close to Campo Santa Margherita in Venice. Justin lives and works in New york city. He studied Visual & Environmental Studies at Harvard College and Painting in Bologna and New York. (more…)

A new appointment at Peggy-Guggenheim Museum here in Venice!
Utopia has always been a matter of investigation for many artists of the past and of the present. “A parallel place with its own storie” this is how Thomas More described his Utopia during the XVIth Century. Many others explored this “new field”, researching new places sometimes just located in their own thoughts.
Utopia Matters starts from here: an exposition that analyse this concept in the art and the grown of artistic communities.
Utopia Matters will be held from the 1st May 2010 until the 25th July 2010. The director is Vivien Green. For more information you can visit the official website of the museum www.guggenheim-venice.it .
This exhibition, “Le Forme del Moderno”, will be held until the 18th July 2010.
Thirthty large sculptures will be shown in the first and second floor, in the beautiful Longhena’s atriums.
This completely new presentation will favours unusual settings and formal values comparing different artistic languages. Many artists will find a space in this exhibition: from Medardo Rosso to Viani, from Rodin to Arturo Martini.
