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.

Come to socialize and browse anthroposophically inspired products and initiatives by a range of carefully selected producers and artisans: art, fiber crafts, handmade wood items, crystals, candles, herbal preparations, food, and more. Free Columbia will provide an Art Dispersal as an experience of the Free Cultural Realm. The proceeds from this fair will support the activities of Anthroposophy NYC, a small branch of Anthroposophical Society in America in the heart of the Big Apple. We are aiming to become a more vibrant community, reaching out into this cosmopolitan city with messages arising out of Rudolf Steiner’s work.
