To say that Peggy Guggenheim was ahead of her time is an understatement. She helped to define her time. A woman of extraordinary tastes and appetites, she was an heiress to her family fortune who became a central figure in the modern art movement. She smuggled canvases out of Nazi-occupied Paris. As she moved through the cultural upheaval of the 20th century, she collected not only art, but artists. Her colorful personal history included such figures as Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, and Marcel Duchamp. This is at once a capsule history of Modernism and a vibrant portrait of a truly amazing woman.
Doors will open at 1:30pm for this general admission show. The runtime is 96 min. Sponsored by Hive and Needmore Coffee Roasters. Please note that Ryder semester film passes will not be accepted for this screening.
Other films showing this day as part of the Ryder's HEROES, ICONS, DISRUPTERS series are Colette at 4:15 and Ask Dr Ruth at 7pm.
