The Guggenheim Experience

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is among the most important museums in Italy for European and American art of the 20th century. It is located in Peggy Guggenheim's former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice. The museum presents Peggy Guggenheim's personal collection, masterpieces from the Hannelore B. and Rudolph B. Schulhof Collection, the Gianni Mattioli Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden, as well as temporary exhibitions.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is owned and operated by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York, which also operates the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and which is a partner of the Basque Regional Government for the programming of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.

Jackson Pollock
International research and conservation project on Jackson Pollock’s masterpiece Alchemy

In October this year, after decades of continuous display, Jackson Pollock’s Alchemy (1947) was withdrawn from public view in order to prepare it for transport to the Opificio dell Pietre Dure, Florence, where it will be cleaned and conserved over the course of 2014. Although Alchemy is usually considered exemplary of the dripped or poured technique that became dominant in Pollock’s work in 1946-47, it is clear from a naked-eye examination that the paint has in places dribbled vertically down the paint surface (in which case the canvas was not at that moment lying flat on the floor), and that some conspicuous white marks have been applied with pressure from the circular nozzle of paint tubes. This and the unusually thick and layered paint surface make this painting of exceptional interest in Pollock’s celebrated mature production. Technical examinations and conservation should reveal much to us about how Pollock carried out the work. Although a wide variety of colors make up the image, black, white, and aluminum silver paint dominate. Owing to its title, Alchemy was central to a controversy in art critical literature of the 1970s in which Pollock’s debt to Carl Gustav Jung and the nexus between title and content were debated.

Effective and incisive communication.

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.
