Guggenheim Bilbao presents Abstract Expressionism

Abstract Expressionism
3 February – 4 June 2017
Press Trip: 2 – 3 February 

The Guggenheim Bilbao presents Abstract Expressionism, an ambitious selection of over 130 paintings, drawings, sculpture and photographs by the artists who were at the forefront of a major shift and new apogee in painting in New York in the 1940s. 

Recently on show at the Royal Academy of Arts London, the Guggenheim Bilbao's presentation has included additional works from its own Collection and the museum's innovative architecture provides a spectacular backdrop, especially for the large format works. The exhibition is also part of a special programme of events to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the museum's opening.
