Mark Tobey: Threading Light | Peggy Guggenheim Collection

Until 10 September 2017

With 66 paintings spanning the 1920s through the 1970s, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection presents the first comprehensive retrospective dedicated to Mark Tobey (1890–1976) in 20 years.

Mark Tobey: Threading Light traces the evolution of Tobey’s groundbreaking style and his significant yet under-recognized contributions to mid-century American modernism and Abstract Expressionism.

Mark Tobey

Today, Mark Tobey is widely recognized as a vanguard figure whose « white-writing » anticipated the formal innovations of New York School artists such as Jackson Pollock. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to re-examine and re-contextualize the work and influence of this key figure in 20th century American art.

Curator Debra Bricker Balken discusses the exhibition Mark Tobey: Threading Light, on show at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection through 10 September 2017.
