Program
Guggenheim Art Classes: The revolutionaries. Artists who have made the difference.
The first art history course organized by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection [info]
How much do we know about expressing ourselves effectively so that what we communicate fully reaches our interlocutor? How capable are we at decoding the messages that fill our daily lives? How is information that passes from one generation to another reinterpreted? In a metaphoric generational passage of experiences and languges BeClear! will see the transmission of works produced by adults to youths, who will intervene on the inherited materials and hand them over to children, so they may in turn experiment with and interpret them.

UNICEF dolls at the PGC bookshop
Pigotta is the UNICEF rag doll that helps to save the lives of millions of children around the world. With a minimum donation of 25 euros to UNICEF you may adopt a hand-made pigotta and provide children with a kit of life-saving vaccines that reduce the risk of death in the first five years of their life. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, together with Rubelli, is honored to take part in this initiative.
