One almost doesn't need more reason to visit the Guggenheim other than to see this historic Frank Lloyd Wright design in action, however, you may not want to miss this fantastic Hilma af Klint retrospective
almost all of New York is talking about!
"When Hilma af Klint began creating radically abstract paintings in 1906, they were like little that had been seen before: bold, colorful, and untethered from any recognizable references to the physical world. It was years before Vasily Kandinski, Piet Mondrian, and others would take similar strides to rid their own artwork of representational content. Yet while many of her better-known contemporaries published manifestos and exhibited widely, af Klint kept her groundbreaking paintings largely private. She rarely exhibited them and, convinced the world was not yet ready to understand her work, stipulated that it not be shown for twenty years following her death. Ultimately, her work was all but unseen until 1986, and only over the subsequent three decades have her paintings and works on paper begun to receive serious attention."
Shake off those late winter blues with an enriching trip to one of NYCs treasures, The Guggenheim.
