abstract

This paper examines the small Pacific collection of Peggy Guggenheim, looking at how it became part of a non-Western art collection that exists in addition to her important modernist assembled works. After highlighting Peggy Guggenheim’s collecting practices, I will relate some of her display experiments. Finally, the discussion will explore the use and show of Guggenheim’s non-Western art collection in a twenty-first century exhibition called Migrating Objects. Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
