This presentation investigates the uncannily coherent formal qualities of the Guggenheim’s international holdings of abstract painting and sculpture from the 1940s and ’50s, questioning, ultimately, how taste is formed. Featured works include those by Martin Barré, Conrad Marca-Relli, Georges Mathieu, Kenzo Okada, and Judit Reigl, among others. Prince is lending two canvasses by Stuart Sutcliffe (an early member of the Beatles), whose work emulates and contributes to the abstract style of his time. [FULL PRESS RELEASE]
