Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict

As a collector and curator, Peggy Guggenheim was a central figure in the modern art movement. She and Yorkshire’s Herbert Read were instrumental in bringing cutting edge works of art from Paris to London in the 1930s.

Guggenheim organised exhibitions with Duchamp, Kandinsky, Dadaists and Surrealists, but the film also presents an urgent story about her role in rescuing modern artworks from Europe during the 2nd World War and establishing a museum in Venice that still bears her name.

Lisa Immordino Vreeland based her film on a long lost taped interview with Peggy, uncovered during her research, along with articles written about her during her lifetime. This is a confident and insightful look at the life and passions of an unconventional woman, whose love of the avant-garde extended to her unusual personal life as well.
