Guggenheim Foundation in December 2014, Curated by Lauren Hinkson, Assistant Curator for Collections, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New YorkThis presentation charts the key movements of modernism, from Cubism to Orphism to Surrealism, and the artists who came to be known as the École de Paris (School of Paris).

In Paris Picasso and Braque radically overturned the conventions of painting, Delaunay composed harmonious visions of color, Kandinsky pursued new directions in abstraction, and Brancusi reimagined how sculptures could be present in space.

The exhibition presents some of the most influential paintings and sculptures of the last century, created by artists such as Brancusi, Braque, Delaunay, Modigliani, and Picasso.

From April 22 to October 23, 2016, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents Windows on the City: The School of Paris, 1900–1945, an exhibition of more than 50 masterpieces from the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. This exhibition is the first since the renewal of the management agreement with the Guggenheim Foundation, signed in December 2014 and valid for 20 years.

Guggenheim Museum's commitment to present an exhibition of key, iconic works from its collection every two years at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
