NameVital Art Nouveau 1900
DescriptionThe exhibition to be held in the Municipal House in Prague will present a selection of the most outstanding works of Czech and European Art Nouveau art from the holdings of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague. The exhibition is intended to show the Art Nouveau arts and crafts as part of the ground-breaking, forward-looking trends and emancipation efforts that evolved in the late 19th century, as a reformist art movement that strove for “the multiplication and intensification of life”. The display will therefore explore the Art Nouveau aesthetic both in terms of modern artist designers' creative ambitions and the new zest for life that swept society as a whole. Masterpieces of decorative art exhibited at the famous Paris World’s Fair of 1900 will be on display, alongside works influenced by the various currents of thought popular at the time (such as the theories of Vitalism and Spiritism), as well as the formal and stylistic innovations in glassware, ceramics and furniture. Other areas will cover the radical changes in life style as reflected in interior design, the visual style of poster art and fashion. A self-service multimedia tablets presentation will be available to visitors, which will provide further information on selected items on view, their creators and the period context. The presentation will also offer 3D scans of Art Nouveau objects that were produced in the framework of the Partage Plus European project, along with online access to digitized foundations for European Art Nouveau art on the Europeana portal, drawn from the collections of prominent European institutions. A comprehensive catalogue featuring more than 400 items on display will be published to accompany the exhibition. Open daily 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. 24.12. open 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., 31.12. open 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
