The largest exhibition of the artist’s work ever to be seen in Australia, Kandinsky has been curated with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, which is home to one of the world’s most comprehensive Kandinsky holdings.
Spanning Kandinsky’s entire oeuvre, it traces his aesthetic evolution: from his beginnings in and around Munich at the start of the century, to his return to Moscow with the outbreak of World War I, followed by the interwar years in Germany where he was an instructor at the progressive Bauhaus school, and his final chapter in Paris.
First held as Vasily Kandinsky: Around the Circle at the Guggenheim Museum New York in 2021-2022, the exhibition will be presented in the Art Gallery’s original building by Megan Fontanella, the Guggenheim Museum’s Curator of Modern Art and Provenance, in collaboration with Jackie Dunn, the Art Gallery of NSW senior curator of exhibitions.
Kandinsky, an exhibition from the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, will showcase the life and work of Vasily Kandinsky in our original South Building from 4 November 2023 to 10 March 2024.
Free entry for kids under 12.
Location: Art Gallery of New South Wales, South Building, Lower level 2
