mr guggenheim can never find a better or more faithful curator than you are. this whole building has been built for you and around you, whether you know it or not. or whether he knows it or not. faithfully, frank lloyd wright”
we know the guggenheim museum, but we do not know the story behind it. the story of the founder and first director of the guggenheim museum, hilla rebay. without her there would be no guggenheim museum. why havenšt we heard of her before?
sigrid faltin worked on the story of hilla rebay for four years, producing a documentary film and publishing a book on the subject. a memorial to hilla rebay exists in the former villa rebay in teningen, germany. exhibitions in new york and in germany will show the complete oeuvre of a rediscovered artist and museum director.
