In 1936 the Gibbes Museum of Art presented the first formal exhibition of Solomon R. Guggenheim’s collection of modern art. Featuring works by Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, and Fernand Leger, among many others, the show brought international attention to Charleston. In 1938 the Gibbes again presented Guggenheim’s collection. Now, eighty years after the first exhibition, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Gibbes Museum of Art have come together to revisit this important intersection in our institutional histories with Realm of the Spirit: Solomon R. Guggenheim Collection and the Gibbes Museum of Art. Organized by The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York, Realm of the Spirit features thirty-six masterworks presented in the original exhibitions by artists such as Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso, Robert Delaunay, Amedeo Modigliani, and Georges Seurat.
This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and Humanities
