The exhibition has been coorganized by The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York, and The Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Bonn/Germany. The Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany will present one of its biggest and most ambitious exhibitions to date. A selection of nearly 200 of Modern and Contemporary masterpieces from the holdings of the Guggenheim Foundation will be on view. Among them outstanding pieces by Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Robert Delaunay, Constantin Brancusi, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Roy Lichtenstein, Carl Andre, Richard Serra, Robert Morris, Donald Judd, Bruce Nauman.
A selection of works from 1990 to the present (by artists as diverse as Matthew Barney, Matthew Ritchie, Kara Walker or Rachel Whiteread) will be shown on the 1500 square metres of the ground floor of the Kunstmuseum Bonn. This extension of the exhibition serves to document the Guggenheim Foundation’s ongoing commitment to the support of contemporary art on an international level. The overall space for the exhibition in both institutions is about 8000 square metres.
