"1900: Art at the Crossroads"
2000-05-19 until 2000-09-10
Guggenheim Museum
New York, NY, USA United States of America

The advent of the 20th century saw the proliferation of a multitude of artistic currents. 1900: Art at the Crossroads presents a comprehensive, pluralistic view of this moment with some 250 works by more than 170 artists from 26 countries. The exhibition offers a fresh look at Impressionists and Post-Impressionists alongside those young proponents of the avant-garde who would become the avatars of Modernism—Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso.

1900 also extends to more conservative figures such as William-Adolphe Bouguereau, born in 1825 but still espoused by academicians at the turn of the century, as well as to the stylistically divergent production of a vast array of other individuals acclaimed in their lifetimes but little-known today. This retrospective glance at cultural production circa 1900 reveals that the ideals, developments, and problems that signaled the dawn of the 20th century had a defining impact on our culture one hundred years later.
