[Peggy Guggenheim Collection ]

 From 2 September 2000 to 7 January 2001, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection will present an intimate exhibition drawn from the Solomon R. Guggenheim's Panza Collection, one of the preeminent collections of art from the 1960s and 1970s which includes many of the best examples of minimalist painting and sculpture, conceptual art, process and postminimal art , and perceptual environments from the postwar period In keeping with Venice's artistic legacy and the magical quality of luminous sky and water found there, this exhibition will focus on an exceptional selection of work from the collection by Southern California artists, many of whom were working and exhibiting in Venice Beach whose own maritime light produced an interest in optical perception and the behaviour of light. Among the artists who use light as a medium or source for their work and who will be featured in the exhibition are Larry Bell, Robert Irwin, Bruce Nauman, Eric Orr, James Turrell, Maria Nordman and Doug Wheeler.
