MEMBERS ONLY: TOUR OF HILMA AF KLINT: PAINTINGS FOR THE FUTURE AT THE GUGGENHEIM WITH CURATORIAL ASSISTANT DAVID HOROWITZ
19 March 2019 / 5:00 am - 6:00 am
“These paintings are a revelation, and like nothing that came before them” (The Economist)
CIMA is thrilled to invite its members this March to a private tour of the Guggenheim’s landmark exhibit Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future. We are fortunate to have the exhibit’s curatorial assistant David Horowitz leading the tour of what the New York Times has called a “staggering exhibition.” Although overlooked in her own time, af Klint’s experimentation in the first decade of the twentieth century has since been classified by art historians as the first true abstract art of the modernist period. Predating Kandinsky, Malevich and Mondrian’s modernist abstractions by nearly a decade, af Klint’s innovation and spiritual approach to painting was truly avant-garde in the sense of ‘before its time.’ Please join us for a private tour of her first major exhibition in the United States since 1986.
Please note: CIMA members will receive an email invitation in our newsletter, via Mailchimp to RSVP for this event. Due to the special nature of this private tour with one of the exhibit’s curators, the event is limited to 12 members only!
If you are feeling generous and you are able, please consider making a donation in person or here. As a public non-profit organization, CIMA works fervently to make such exclusive and exceptional events available to our members. Most of our members-only tours are free, but for this special and extravagant event, your financial support would be most welcome. Any amount will facilitate our ability to continue to offer our members access to one-of-a-kind private events at the premier art institutions across New York City.
Members receive free admission to CIMA, access outside of regular public hours, a copy of the annual catalogue, and invitations to exclusive events and receptions.
