English Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 1937 by philanthropist Solomon R. Guggenheim and his long-time art advisor, artist Hilla von Rebay. The foundation is a leading institution for the collection, preservation, and research of modern and contemporary art and operates several museums around the world. The first museum established by the foundation was The Museum of Non-Objective Painting, in New York City. This became The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 1952, and the foundation moved the collection into its first permanent museum building, in New York City, in 1959. The foundation next opened the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Italy, in 1980. Its international network of museums expanded in 1997 to include the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Bilbao, Spain, and it expects to open a new museum, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates after its construction is completed.

The mission of the foundation is "to promote the understanding and appreciation of art, architecture, and other manifestations of visual culture, primarily of the modern and contemporary periods, and to collect, conserve, and study" modern and contemporary art. The Foundation seeks, in its constituent museums, to unite distinguished architecture and artworks. The foundation's first permanent museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, is housed in a modern spiral building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and the Guggenheim Bilbao was designed by Frank Gehry. Both of these innovative designs received wide press and critical attention. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is housed in an 18th-century Italian palace, the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal.

The permanent collection of the foundation is based primarily on nine private collections: Solomon R. Guggenheim's collection of non-objective paintings; Karl Nierendorf's collection of German expressionism and early abstract expressionism; Katherine S. Dreier's gift of paintings and sculptures; Peggy Guggenheim's collection, concentrating on abstraction and surrealism; Justin K. and Hilde Thannhauser's collection of impressionist, post-impressionist, and early modern masterpieces; part of Hilla von Rebay's collection; Giuseppe Panza di Biumo's holdings of American minimalist, post-minimalist, environmental and conceptual art of the 1960s and 1970s; a collection of photographs and mixed media from the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation; and the Bohen Foundation's collection of film, video, photography and new media. The foundation's collections have expanded greatly through eight decades and include every major movement of 20th- and 21st-century art. Its directors and curators have attempted to form a single collection that is not encyclopedic, but rather based on their unique visions. The collection has grown in scope to include new media and performance art, and the foundation has entered into collaborations with YouTube and BMW.

Polish Fundacja Solomona R. Guggenheima

Fundacja Solomona R. Guggenheima (ang. Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation) – organizacja non-profit założona w 1937 roku przez Solomona Guggenheima i Hillę von Rebay. Celem fundacji jest gromadzenie, przechowywanie, badanie sztuki współczesnej.

Pierwsze muzeum utworzone przez fundację to Muzeum Malarstwa Nieprzedstawiającego (The Museum of Non-Objective Painting), zastąpione w 1959 przez Muzeum Guggenheima w Nowym Jorku.

W latach 70. zaczęła powstawać międzynarodowa sieć muzeów. Peggy Guggenheim dedykowała swój dom i kolekcję sztuki nowojorskiej fundacji pod warunkiem pozostawienia zebranych przez nią dzieł sztuki w jej weneckim pałacu. Po jej śmierci kolekcja została udostępniona publiczności. W 1997 otworzono Muzeum Guggenheima w Bilbao i Deutsche Guggenheim w Berlinie. W 2006 roku władze Abu Zabi, stolicy Zjednoczonych Emiratów Arabskich, zawarły z Fundacją Guggenheima porozumienie w sprawie budowy kolejnego muzeum. Budynek został zaprojektowany przez Franka O. Gehry'ego. Ma zostać oddany do użytku w 2017 roku.

W latach 1956–1964 fundacja przyznawała Międzynarodową Nagrodę Guggenheima (ang. Guggenheim International Award (GIA)) w dziedzinie malarstwa. Odbyły się cztery edycje nagrody zakończone prestiżowymi międzynarodowymi wystawami dla nagrodzonych. W latach 1967 i 1971 pod jej auspicjami odbyły się jeszcze dwie wystawy, ale zaproszonym artystom nie przyznawano już nagród pieniężnych.

Portuguese Fundação Solomon R. Guggenheim

A Fundação Solomon R. Guggenheim é uma fundação criada em 1937 pelo filantropo e empresário Solomon Robert Guggenheim e pela artista Hilla von Rebay. É conhecida por ser a detentora de uma série de museus internacionais:

o Museu Solomon R. Guggenheim, em Nova Iorque;

a Coleção Peggy Guggenheim, em Veneza;

o Museu Guggenheim Bilbao, em Bilbao ,Espanha;

o Deutsche Guggenheim, em Berlim (construída em cooperação com Deutsche Bank);

o Guggenheim Las Vegas e o Guggenheim Hermitage, em Las Vegas.Os museus exibem a arte moderna e a pós-moderna, mas algumas filiais exibem também a arte comercial. Além disso, diversas filiais do Guggenheim são famosas por sua arquitetura distinta, como, por exemplo, os edifícios do Museu Solomon R. Guggenheim (de Frank Lloyd Wright), o Museu Guggenheim Bilbao (de Frank Gehry) e o Guggenheim Las Vegas (de Rem Koolhaas). A fundação desenvolveu a reputação de empregar arquitetos famosos e construir edifícios de realce. Entretanto, críticas são feitas quanto a esse ponto, pois muitas vezes os edifícios dos museus são mais famosos e conhecidos que os trabalhos artísticos que estão neles expostos.

Em 8 de julho de 2006, o governo de Abu Dhabi, nos Emirados Árabes Unidos, anunciou um acordo com a Fundação para se construir um museu de quase 30 mil metros quadrados na cidade. Frank Gehry irá projetá-lo, com conclusão esperada para 2011.
