Postwar Era. A Recent History Homages to Jack Tworkov and Claire Falkenstein

Postwar Era. A Recent History Homages to Jack Tworkov and Claire Falkenstein

In this video, curator Luca Massimo Barbero tells us about this interesting exhibition – open until April 4, 2016 at Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice- that offers a fresh, analytical look at postwar American and European art through 1979, the year of Peggy Guggenheim death.

Paintings and sculptures, works both from Peggy Guggenheim’s collection and from donations to the Foundation’s Venice museum, some rarely exhibited, are assembled in clusters and arranged according to theme, style, affinity, and an unconventional chronology, bringing together threads of sensibility that go beyond avant-garde movements and historical tendencies. This context also offers insight into the work of two artists in the Foundation’s collections: Jack Tworkov (1900–1982) and Claire Falkenstein (1908–1997).
