Exhibition The Challenge of Modernism in Belvedere Museum in Vienna – from 20 October 2017 to 18 February 2018


Vienna and Zagreb around 1900

In the years around 1900, the multi-ethnic realm of the Habsburg Monarchy experienced a lively exchange of art and culture between Vienna, its center, and the main cities of the Crown lands such as Zagreb. For the development of Croatian art around the turn of the century, this exchange was very significant.

In the exhibition, the connections and points of reference at the start of the twentieth century are presented by key works of Austrian and Croatian artists of that period. Artists and architects who were trained in Vienna brought the new trends in art to Zagreb and, within 20 years, the overall character of cultural life at the time was fundamentally changed.

On show are works by Gustav Klimt, Koloman Moser, Carl Moll, Vlaho Bukovac, Ivan Meštrović, Robert Auer, Tomislav Krizman as well as other protagonists of the Viennese and Modernism.

The exhibition is a cooperation with the Klovićevi dvori Gallery, Zagreb, Croatia.

Exhibition Illuminating Letters at the Lighthouse in Glasgow – from 1st October 2017 to 27 January 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.

Exhibition Ferdinand Hodler at the Leopold Museum in Vienna – from 13 October 2017 to 22 January 2018


Elective Affinities from Klimt to Schiele

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.

Call for papers III coupDefouet International Congress in Barcelona – until 15 January 2018


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 third edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, the main thematic strand proposes to look into new perspectives on Art Nouveau heritage of cities by means of cinematographic language. Given the coincidence in the time of the birth of both, footage from this age is especially significant. Together with other later filmed material related to Art Nouveau, it may provide new insights into this artistic movement and a deeper knowledge of what has been preserved, as well as what was lost or forgotten.

A second theme strand centres on the relationship of Art Nouveau works and artists with politics, and in particular with colonialism, while the third strand explores the importance of drug use and/or attitudes towards sex in Art Nouveau artists, and how this influenced their work. Finally, the section on research and doctoral theses in progress, in which presentations from both seasoned and young researchers are welcome, will complete the four thematic strands of the programme.

The final deadline for submissions is 15 January 2018.

Exhibition Panorama at the ADAM in Brussels – from 23 June 2017 to 7 January 2018


Panorama – a history of modern design in Belgium

The exhibition brings an overview of a hundred years of modern design in Belgium. Starting with the world-famous Art nouveau style at the turn of the nineteenth century, it then covers the social aspirations of the interwar avant-garde movement, the pedagogical experiments at the La Cambre school, the post-war design craze, the promotion of modernist Belgian design by the Brussels Design Centre and the impact of the environmental crisis in the 1970s. Through objects, graphic material, pictures and original film fragments, the exhibition showcases the multiple faces of modern design in Belgium: infused with social ambitions to improve everyday life, as an economic tool to boost the national economy and as a marker of the Belgian nation on large international exhibitions.
