New movie to look at the life of Peggy Guggenheim
-The film, by art advisor Eleanor Cayre and Emmy Award-winning producer Nikki Silver, is expected to begin production in 2012
New York-based art advisor Eleanor Cayre has partnered with Nikki Silver, the Emmy Award-winning producer of On Screen Entertainment, to make a movie about the life of collector Peggy Guggenheim, whose birthday was celebrated last week.
Past Cayre projects include the Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition, ‘The Station’, 2008, in which she teamed up with former Whitney curator Shamim Momin and artist Nate Lowman to display the work of 40 artists, including Ryan McGinley, Ed Ruscha and Rita Ackermann.
"I have always been fascinated with Peggy's collection and life story,” said Cayre of the art world maven. “She was an eccentric figure who not only championed, but also had intimate relationships with some of the most creative minds in modern art history.”
The film, which is still untitled, is expected to begin production in 2012.
