Panorama : a history of modern design in Belgium
Dates:23/06/2017-07/01/2018

L’exposition retrace cent ans d’histoire du design moderne en Belgique. Elle s’ouvre sur le mondialement célèbre style Art nouveau, émergeant à Bruxelles à l’aube du 19e siècle, pour ensuite retracer l’évolution du design dans le courant du 20e siècle : les aspirations sociales du mouvement avant-gardiste de l’entre-deux-guerres, les expériences pédagogiques menées au sein de l’école La Cambre, l’engouement d’après-guerre pour le design, la promotion du design moderniste belge par le Brussels Design Centre et l’impact de la crise écologique des années 70. À travers des objets, du matériel graphique, des photos et des fragments vidéo originaux, l’exposition dévoile les nombreuses facettes du design moderne en Belgique : utopique ambition d’améliorer le quotidien, outil économique destiné à stimuler l’économie nationale et représentant de la nation belge lors d’expositions internationales d’envergure. La Belgique n’est pas d’emblée associée au design. Pourtant, le design est intimement mêlé à l’histoire du pays : des courants artistiques tels que l’Art nouveau y sont nés et des événements emblématiques tels que l’Expo 58 s’y sont déroulés. Panorama éclaire cette histoire du design et montre comment la Belgique a utilisé le design de différentes manières au cours de l’histoire.

Doesburg
Jan Toorop & Het Animisme
Dates:09/07/2017-03/06/2018

The exhibition has an innovative point of departure because the focus is entirely on Toorop’s origins; influenced by the jungle, Toorop remained ‘Eastern’. The exhibition shows that Toorop had great faith in the mystical world around us. During the exhibition, an extensive correspondence between Toorop and some of his female worshipers will be shown. In addition, work from Annie Hall, Toorops’ wife and work by students such as Mies Elout-Drabbe and Riet van Houten will be on show. Around this exhibition, lectures take place regularly, focusing on the influences of life in the former Dutch-Indies on Toorop, animism, his style of work and color use.

Le Petit Palais consacre une grande rétrospective à Anders Zorn (1860-1920), figure centrale de la peinture suédoise du tournant du XIXe et du XXe siècle.

Women of the Arts & Crafts Movement
Dates:15/09/2017-01/01/2018

In anticipation of Lakeland Arts’ 2018 programme celebrating the 1918 Representation of People’s Act in which women first received the right to vote in the UK, this exhibition highlights the diverse skills of the women artists and designers associated with the Arts & Crafts Movement. The show recognises works by women artists whose contributions have often been overlooked, or wrongly attributed in favour of a more prominent male family member.

Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau
Dates:16/09/2017-31/12/2017

Our 2017 special exhibition season concludes with the Art Nouveau designs of Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), in the eagerly anticipated exhibition Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau. Drawn from one of the finest private collections of Mucha’s work in the United States, this exhibition features 75 works by the celebrated Czech master, whose varied, expressive, and seductive imagery helped form and later shape the aesthetics of French Art Nouveau at the turn of the 20th century. Taking inspiration from the unruly aspects of the natural world, Art Nouveau influenced art and architecture, especially in graphic work and illustration, with its sinuous lines and whiplash curves. Through rare, original lithographs and proofs, paintings, drawings, and ephemera, this exhibition examines the broad range of Mucha’s work, largely created during the 1890s, at a time when the emphasis was on creating a new art fit for the new century. The exhibition and tour are organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions. The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with essays from the Mucha Foundation and art historian Gabriel Weisberg. The catalogue, as well as a variety of other Mucha-related merchandise, will be available for purchase in The Museum Store.

European Secessions: Munich, Vienna, Prague, Rome - The wave of modernity
Dates:23/09/2017-21/10/2018

The Secession brought modern art to a new, more dynamic, debate that widened early in other cities such as Prague (Secession), Budapest (Magyar Szecesszió), Sofia, Warsaw (Secesja), Belgrade and Zagreb (Secesija), propagating a stiffened taste of the fluxes of French Art Nouveau and Anglo-Saxon Liberty, but which included styles of various national traditions.

Glasgow
Illuminating Letters
Dates:01/10/2017-27/01/2018

This exhibition takes its starting point from the relationship between Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret MacDonald; particularly his view that she was the creative force within their relationship, a revelation found documented in a private letter written by Mackintosh.

Using this letter and other letters researched at the Hunterian’s Mackintosh archive collection, the exhibition builds on this sense of revealed, discovered things. The artworks will be expressed as imagery of rare flora & fauna in the mediums of screenprint; diamond dust and also precious metals with excerpts of correspondence between Siobhan Healy and Sir David Attenborough. This will give a sense of these personal stories being transient, precious and ethereal.

May Morris : Art & Life
Dates:07/10/2017-28/01/2018

May Morris: Art & Life is the most comprehensive survey of May Morris’s work to date, bringing together over 80 works from collections around the UK, many of which have never been on public display. The exhibition reveals the breadth of May's creative pursuits, featuring wallpaper and embroidery alongside jewellery, dresses and book designs, as well as sketches and watercolours. It focuses on May’s development of art embroidery – elevating needlework from a domestic craft to a serious art form – and highlights the extent of her influence in the UK and abroad, particularly the US. A number of rarely seen works from public and private collections are featured in the exhibition, including a pair of expansive silk hangings, which May designed and embroidered in 1895 under the auspices of Morris & Co. The Spring and Summer, and Autumn and Winter panels are thought to have been commissioned for £150 making them most expensive entry in the Morris & Co. order book for that period, and a highlight of the exhibition. Also on display for the first time is a hand painted Valentine card made by May for George Bernard Shaw in 1886, which was recently discovered among an uncatalogued album of cards sent to Shaw in the British Library's collection. May and Shaw were in love though he maintained he was too poor to marry her. He would later insist that a "Mystic Betrothal" had existed between them, yet this did not prevent him from establishing close relationships with other women at the same time. Despite being emotionally rebuffed, May recovered and the pair remained good friends.

Saint-Gilles - Bruxelles
Henry van de Velde, dessins et pastels (1884 – 1904)
Dates:12/10/2017-07/01/2018

Henry van de Velde (1863 – 1957) est considéré à juste titre comme un des créateurs les plus talentueux et protéiforme. Mais son style si personnel ne se limite pas pour autant à l’art fin-de-siècle. Durant l’entre-deux-guerres, de retour en Belgique, il prend conscience de son rôle dans le mouvement moderne dont il fut le juste propagateur au sein de l’Institut Supérieur des Arts Décoratifs de La Cambre et par de nombreuses réalisations architecturales.

Cette exposition permet non seulement de plonger dans une œuvre encore très inspirante en ce début du XXIème siècle : la délicatesse de ses compositions mariée à la puissance de sa ligne conserve toute sa force. De plus, son œuvre témoigne, par elle-même, de la modernité la plus téméraire de cette fin-de-siècle. Enfin, indépendamment de la qualité des œuvres exposées, cette exposition offre l’occasion de comprendre le parcours et l’évolution artistique d’un tel artiste.

Cette exposition est une invitation à (re)découvrir l’œuvre de van de Velde sous un angle tout à fait inédit et à plonger dans un des pans les plus audacieux de la peinture fin-de siècle.

Madrid
Alphonse Mucha Retrospective
Dates:12/10/2017-25/02/2018

The show is conceived as a comprehensive survey consisting of over 200 pieces, organised and produced by Arthemisia in collaboration with the Mucha Foundation, and conceived by Tomoko Sato, curator of the foundation since 2007. The exhibition highlights six facets of Mucha’s personality: Bohemian; picture maker for people; cosmopolitan; mystic; patriot and philosopher. Through these aspects, the exhibition looks at the development of his artistic career and how he grew as a man, living through one of the most turbulent times in European history. The large number of works on show includes paintings like Self-portrait (1899,) posters like the one created for Gismonda (1894) and another featuring Sarah Bernhardt as La Princesse Lointaine (1896), as well as “France Embracing Bohemia“, in 2018, when this exhibition ends, is the 100th Anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia and the painting of this work. The painting shows the spirit of freedom embodied in the figure of France giving the kiss of Freedom to the figure of Bohemia, which has been suffering under the oppression of the Austro-Hungarian empire. The wide-ranging selection was enabled by the Mucha Foundation, an institution that has been working for years to advance a better understanding of the artist worldwide. This one-artist show in Madrid is able to reconstruct the full breadth and depth of Mucha’s artistic practice thanks to loans from the foundation. The show features key elements from the artist’s life and work—his Czech and Slavic cultural identity and the love he felt for his family and his land of birth. Images of beguiling women immortalised by his effortless brushwork are combined with innovative maquettes and typographic designs to showcase the extreme originality of Alphonse Mucha’s oeuvre. Overall, the exhibition affords an extraordinary portrait of this great Czech creator, celebrated in Art History as the originator of a style that would later spread throughout the world under the name of Art Nouveau, Stile Liberty, Secessionsstil, Modernisme or Jugendstil.

Wien
Ferdinand Hodler : Elective Affinities from Klimt to Schiele
Dates:13/10/2017-22/01/2018

This presentation at the Leopold Museum will be the most comprehensive retrospective exhibition of works by Ferdinand Hodler (1853–1918) in Austria since the artist’s resounding success at the 1904 Secession exhibition. An exponent of Symbolism and Jugendstil, a pioneer of Expressionism, and not least an innovator of monumental painting, Hodler was an important inspiration to numerous artists of Viennese Modernism, such as Gustav Klimt and Koloman Moser, as well as Oskar Kokoschka and Egon Schiele. The presentation focuses on the three main themes of Hodler’s art: landscapes from plein air painting to abstraction, portraits with an emphasis on female depictions, self-portraits, the haunting series of works accompanying the death of his lover Valentine Godé-Darel, as well as his eminent Symbolist figural compositions.
