According to the latest DPCM, in order to contain the spread of Covid-19, starting from Thursday 5 November and until December 3, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection is forced to close the gates of Palazzo Venier dei Leoni.
"Since 2 June, the date of reopening of the Collection to the public, the museum has guaranteed its visitors a safe experience, in compliance with the rules of containment of the virus, starting from the quota entrances, therefore greatly reduced. Unfortunately, the current situation forces us to take drastic decisions such as closing museums," says director Karole P reluctantly. B. Vail. "We must resist, and go on. We must be united more than ever, even at a distance, so that culture does not stop. Art can stimulate reflection, dialogue and exchange. We learned, during the last lockdown, that in times of crisis and change art can be a source of comfort and inspiration, it can unite, even at a distance, and be itself a form of resilience. We have done a great job of bringing the PGC home to all those who love the museum, through the numerous digital projects on the site and our social channels. We will do the same now, and we will continue to do so in the future, in the hope that the doors of culture can reopen as soon as possible."
In this period, with an articulated and always renewed schedule, all to be discovered on the guggenheim-venice.it website, the digital and social activities of the Collection continue, and the third appointment of the SuperaMenti project is confirmed. Artistic practices for a new present, with Alice Pasquini's workshop "Beyond the Wall: Art and Context", which will take place entirely remotely on the Zoom platform, between 20 and 29 November.
