The Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York is hosting the first American retrospective of the work of László Moholy-Nagy. More than a debut, the exhibition marks a long-awaited return of the artist to the exhibition halls of the museum. Moholy-Nagy was one of the first artists to be collected and exhibited in what was originally called the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, thanks to the vision of Hilla Rebay, Solomon R. Guggenheim’s artistic advisor.
