Bilbao. Kandinsky at the Guggenheim: at the origin of abstraction

April 6, 2021

The Guggenheim in Bilbao is hosting a retrospective exhibition of Kandinsky’s work in collaboration with the BBVA Foundation almost entirely drawn from the NY Guggenheim. Stretching from Moscow to Paris, passing through Munich and Berlin; the exhibition accompanies the spectator through the fundamental steps of Kandinsky’s life and poetry. A fascinating voyage towards the progressive dematerialization of the figurative image and the search for abstraction. Convinced that art had the ability to transform the human being and society, Kandinsky fought against aesthetic traditions and affirmed the right of the “inner necessity” to reveal itself. “ The point, line and surface” is therefore not the title of a sage but a true and proper manifesto. Until May 23rd. Curated by Megan Fontanella.
