Our Curator Talk has now booked out. For upcoming talks, see In Conversation with Kathleen Soriano or Antony Penrose on Roland Penrose and the British Surrealists with Peggy Guggenheim.

Discover the story behind our exciting exhibition 'Peggy Guggenheim: Petersfield to Palazzo' from our Head of Collections and Exhibitions, Louise Weller. 

Learn about Peggy Guggenheim, the 'art addict' at the centre of our exhibition. Discover more about Guggenheim's life in Petersfield, an introduction to the art circles she found herself at the centre of, and her path to becoming a renowned art collector and patron of the 20th century. 

Louise Weller will introduce the exhibition and share the experience of developing, researching, and curating Peggy Guggenheim: Petersfield to Palazzo. There will also be the opportunity to visit the exhibition and ask questions to the mind behind the exhibition.
