PEGGY GUGGENHEIM - ART ADDICT

Female Director(s), Documentary, Female Screenwriter(s)
Bouncing between Europe and the United States as often as she would between lovers, Peggy Guggenheim’s life was as swirling as the design of her uncle’s museum, and reads more like fiction than any reality imaginable. Peggy Guggenheim – Art Addict offers a rare look into Guggenheim’s world: blending the abstract, the colorful, the surreal and the salacious, to portray a life that was as complex and unpredictable as the artwork Peggy revered and the artists she pushed forward.

Lisa Immordino Vreeland, whose acclaimed debut feature documentary followed the life of Harper's Bazaar fashion editor Diana Vreeland, turns her lens towards Peggy Guggenheim: a fascinating woman who defined and assembled the premier collection of 20th century modern art. Immordino Vreeland examines how her personal friendships with major masters from every discipline, including Duchamp, Cocteau, Beckett and Rothko, was inseparably interwoven into her duty towards contemporary art.
