Guggenheim: Hilma af Klint

major exhibit of abstract, spiritually-inspired art


While it deals mostly with her early works, the Guggenheim’s exhibit of the Swedish artist Hilma af Klint has an important link to Rudolf Steiner. He visited her studio in 1908 and according to her memoirs advised her to develop her own powers rather than working mediumistically. While a current view sees Steiner’s advice as “the worst studio visit ever,” Klint herself followed it and stayed in touch with him, visiting the Goetheanum several times.
Her later work is not considered in this exhibit, the focus being on how a little-known woman painter was actually doing important abstract art before the famous men.
The Guggenheim exhibit is up for some months to come and certainly recommended. For a more accurate account of her whole life work there is a 2016 article in the Guardian.
