Artist Awards and Acquisitions, 1956–1987
3 December, 2011 – 16 July, 2012
This focused presentation provides a compelling historical overview of three award series—the Guggenheim Internationals, the Theodoron Awards, and the Exxon Nationals and Internationals—exhibited at the Guggenheim between 1956 and 1987. The participating artists and resulting acquisitions are highlighted, with accompanying photographs, catalogues, audio and video clips, and ephemeral materials that illuminate the institution’s longstanding support of emerging artists.
