12.10.2018, 2–6 pm, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York US, Visionary: On Hilma af Klint and the Spirit of Her Time

This symposium (Guggenheim Museum), presented in conjunction with Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future, explores how Theosophy—a religious movement that seeks to reconcile existing spiritual and philosophical teachings—and other esoteric belief systems that emerged at the turn of the 20th century impacted the development of abstraction in the United States and Europe. Through short talks and moderated discussions, participants will consider how these currents converged in af Klint’s visionary work. www.guggenheim.org.
