We are looking for Volunteer Exhibition Stewards for our major new exhibition Peggy Guggenheim: Petersfield to Palazzo

From 15 June 2024 – 5 October 2024, Petersfield Museum and Art Gallery will present a major new exhibition Peggy Guggenheim: Petersfield to Palazzo. 

Play a key role in making modern art and Venetian glamour centre stage by enhancing visitor experience during this exhibition.

Peggy Guggenheim: Petersfield to Palazzo will tell the story of Peggy Guggenheim (1898-1979), the most famous twentieth-century patron of modern art, who lived at Yew Tree Cottage near Petersfield between 1934 and 1939. It will introduce the multitude of literary, artistic and intellectual figures of the period with whom Guggenheim interacted and reveal the fascinating untold story of her life in Petersfield and West Sussex through her family, friends and lovers. 

With loans from Peggy Guggenheim Collection Venice, Tate, the Hepworth Wakefield, the Penrose Collection, the National Trust, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery and private dealer Dolan/Maxwell – we will show works by leading British and European modern artists. This will include work by Jean Arp, Max Ernst, Henry Moore, Yves Tanguy, John Tunnard, Rita Kernn-Larsen and Hazel King-Farlow.
