Megan Fontanella is Curator, Modern Art and Provenance at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. Since joining the institution in 2005, Megan has curated or co-organized nearly thirty exhibitions for the Guggenheim’s extended constellation of museums in Berlin, Bilbao, New York, and Venice, as well as developed shows for the traveling exhibitions program. Megan’s collection-based exhibitions have included Visionaries: Creating a Modern Guggenheim (2017); Art of Another Kind: International Abstraction and the Guggenheim, 1949–1960 (2012); and The Great Upheaval: Modern Art from the Guggenheim Collection, 1910–1918 (2011), among others. She also curated Visions of Modernity (2012-13), the final presentation of the Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin. More recently, Megan co-curated Giacometti (2018) and supported Alberto Burri: The Trauma of Painting (2015-16), as well as Robert Motherwell: Early Collages (2013). Her current project is Van Gogh to Picasso: The Thannhauser Legacy (2018-20), an exhibition that will travel to Spain, France, and Italy. Megan likewise maintains the Guggenheim’s Thannhauser Gallery, a permanent display of 19th- and early 20th-century art. Apart from her exhibitions activities, Megan conducts provenance research for the Guggenheim and collaborates on cross-departmental initiatives related to collections stewardship.
