BWW Blog: Who Made the Guggenheim the Guggenheim?BWW Blog: Who Made the Guggenheim the Guggenheim?
by Barry Kostrinsky - Feb 13, 2017

Who made the Guggenheim the Guggenheim? Why Rockefeller of course. Remember in My Big Fat Greek Wedding the wise words of the wife- yes...the man has the head but the woman controls the neck and which way the head turns. Solomon Guggenheim's wife, a Rockefeller, introduces Hilla Rebay to her husband and fosters the beginning of a relationship that posts Hilla as the art advisor for Peggy's uncle and the first director of the Museum of Non-Objective Art- yes, the original name of the Guggenheim Museum which could have been called Kandinsky's Painting Depot (KPD) given the deep collection of his artworks.

BWW Preview: Guggenheim's Works & Process Looks Inside the Met's New RUSALKABWW Preview: Guggenheim's Works & Process Looks Inside the Met's New RUSALKA
by Richard Sasanow - Feb 2, 2017

“RUSALKA is an operatic fairytale with a strong message about the consequences of over-reaching--an appropriate, cautionary tale for our times,” said Peter Gelb, the Metropolitan Opera's General Manager, introducing a panel at the Guggenheim Museum's Works & Process series that included director Mary Zimmerman and conductor Mark Elder. The new production opens at the Met on February 2--“and that's not an 'alternative fact,'” said Gelb--starring soprano Kristine Opolais as Rusalka, tenor Brandon Jovanovich as the Prince, mezzo Jamie Barton as Jezibaba (the witch), and bass-baritone Eric Owens as the Water Gnome (Rusalka's father).

Gallerie dell'Accademia di Venezia to Feature Work of Philip Guston, May 10Gallerie dell'Accademia di Venezia to Feature Work of Philip Guston, May 10
by BWW News Desk - Jan 31, 2017

Beginning 10 May 2017, Gallerie dell'Accademia di Venezia will present the work of the pre-eminent American painter Philip Guston (1913 - 1980) in a major exhibition exploring the artist's oeuvre in relation to critical literary interpretation. In a spirit reflective of how Guston himself cultivated the sources of his inspiration, 'Philip Guston and The Poets' considers the ideas and writings of major 20th century poets as catalysts for his enigmatic pictures and visions. Featuring works that span a fifty-year period in Guston's artistic career, the exhibition includes 50 major paintings and 25 prominent drawings dating from 1930 until his death in 1980. The exhibition draws parallels between the essential humanist themes reflected in these works, and the language and prose of five poets: D. H. Lawrence (British, 1885 - 1930), W. B. Yeats (Irish, 1865 - 1939), Wallace Stevens (American, 1879 - 1955), Eugenio Montale (Italian, 1896 - 1981) and T. S. Eliot (American-born, British, 1888 - 1965). (more...)

Andrea Rosen Gallery Presents Elliott Hundley, 2/10Andrea Rosen Gallery Presents Elliott Hundley, 2/10
by BWW News Desk - Jan 19, 2017

Elliott Hundley's intricate and immersive works evolve from his historical research on theater, literature, and film, emerging in this exhibition from an exploration of Antonin Artaud's enduringly imperative play 'There Is No More Firmament.' Written in the 1930s and set in an imagined year 2000, the script recounts a society's frenetic response to an imminent cataclysmic event. Replete with cacophonous sound, jarring light and fitful movement - a mesmerizing intimation of synesthetic experience - the text conveys a sense of anxiety and uncertainty. (more...)
