Exhibition The Norwegian Japonism at the Jugendsilsenteret in Ålesund – from 26 September 2014 to 13 September 2015

The movement that is now spreading from Japan across Europe”

This quote from the Norwegian artist Gerhard Munthe (1849–1929) refers to one of the main trends in European art from the mid-19th century through the early decades of the 20th century.

In 1853, Japan opened its borders to the outside world after 200 years of isolation. This lead to a cult of all things Japanese among European artists – a movement labelled as Japonism from the 1860s–70s onward. This Japanese-inspired art did not constitute a style as such, but greatly influenced a number of styles in European art. In the 1880s and 1890s, Japonism became a major ingredient of the Art Nouveau style. In Norway, Art Nouveau peaked in popularity in the years between 1890 and 1910.

This exhibition looks at the connections between the Art Nouveau style, the nation-building project in Norway, and the Japonism movement as expressed in Norwegian Art Nouveau. Starting with Gerhard Munthe, considered the leading proponent of Japonism in Norway, the exhibition highlights connections between Japonism and the distinct national character of Norwegian Art Nouveau in terms of technique, range of motifs, format, and choice of materials.

II coupDefouet International Congress in Barcelona – from 25 to 28 June 2015

Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling

The Art Nouveau European Route brings together local governments and other institutions in the common quest for the protection, promotion and diffusion of Art Nouveau heritage. To fully explore and bring to light the value of Art Nouveau heritage, therefore, a Congress organised by the Art Nouveau European Route cannot limit its scope to the analyses and interpretation of the tangible heritage; it must go deeper into the reality of the communities that created it.
In this second edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, we propose to shed new light on an aspect that has been studied very little, if at all: the important contribution of women artists to the development of Art Nouveau. In a nutshell: women as artists, women as creators, women as promoters and protagonists of Art Nouveau. Coupled with this ambition, we also wish to revisit the widely studied and interpreted representation of the female aesthetic and ideal in Art Nouveau, with new contributions on the matter.
A further strand will focus on little-known Art Nouveau cities, in which we expect to discover creative centres of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that have not until now been widely publicised. A similar section on research in progress to the first congress, one in which we welcome presentations from both seasoned and young researchers, will complete the thematic strands of the programme.

Exhibition Poster Art of Art Nouveau III - Temptation by Advertisement at Sprudelhof in Bad Nauheim – from 19 June to 26 July 2015

The Jugendstilverein Bad Nauheim e. V. presents its 3rd poster exhibition from 19 June until 26 July 2015.
New marketing strategies during the Belle Epoque mark the beginning of modern advertisement. Enterprises started to increase their sale by means of clever and tempting advertisement. They engaged well-known painters and graphic artists, who designed posters of artistically high quality, thus creating a new style of art, which even found its way into museums and exhibitions. The exhibition consists in three parts: everyday life, luxury and culture, with posters from Mucha, Kleukens, Bradley and many other artists.

Bathhouse 3, Sprudelhof, Bad Nauheim
Opening hours: Tuesday - Friday from 14 – 18pm; Saturday and Sunday from 11 – 18pm
Free entrance

Vienna represented in the exhibition In the time of Klimt at the Pinacothèque in Paris – from 12 February to 21 June 2015

The Vienna Secession

The Pinacothèque de Paris, in partnership with Arthemisia Group and 24 ORE Cultura, wishes to examine once again an essential aspect of Art Nouveau, which was developed in Vienna at the start of the 20th century under the name Secession. Gustav Klimt's part in the emerging of that movement is a major one. The artist's talent and brio, from his precocious start to his excessive decorative effects, where gildings and the emerging expressionism are dominant, are the foundations of a new period, which flowered in Vienna at the turn of the century. That artistic movement is, in fact, at the origin of the birth, a few years later, of one of the major currents in modern art, Expressionism, which was the theme of an exhibition in the museum in 2011.

The exhibition shows over 180 works taken from the collections of the Belvedere museum in Vienna, as well as from private collections. The curatorship of the exhibition is ensured by Alfred Weidinger, curator of the Belvedere museum in Vienna.
