Champions of Modernism: Non-Objective Art of the 1930s and 40s and Its Legacy

Ridderhof Martin Gallery

September 6-November 3

When the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, later the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, opened in New York in 1939, it became one of the prime showcases of modern art in the country. The Museum’s first director, Hilla Rebay, championed some of the most innovative artists of the day. This traveling exhibition features works by Rebay and artists she admired -Rudolf Bauer, Rolph Scarlett, Jean Xceron, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. Many of these works were formerly in the Guggenheim collection.
