Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict
A portrait of a patron of the arts extraordinaire who transformed a modest fortune and impeccable taste into one of the premiere collections of twentieth century art.
Directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland.
“Over the course of Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s new documentary, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict, the famous collector is called, or calls herself, a narcissist; an enfant terrible; a nymphomaniac, an outsider; a disturbed, liberated woman; timid; charmingly naive; a little girl; and a lone wolf. Guggenheim lived and breathed art and behaved as creatively as the artists she adored. For Art Addict, Immordino Vreeland interviewed a wide array of Guggenheim intimates and art world A-listers, a few of whom casually perpetuate elements of those persistent stereotypes. But the film also offers a fascinating look at Guggenheim’s far more complex reality” –Julia Felsenthal, Vogue
Film followed by a group dialogue.
