Brussels Art Nouveau & Art Deco Festival in Brussels – from 16 to 31 March 2019


The BANAD Festival is a special event that promotes the Art Nouveau and Art Deco heritage of the Brussels-Capital Region. It takes place every year in March, and in 2019 from 16 to 31 March.

At the heart of the festival are guided tours of the interiors of Art Nouveau and Art Deco buildings that are not normally open to the public. A unique opportunity to discover, or rediscover, these hidden architectural gems!

Other activities that promote Art Nouveau and Art Deco heritage are also organised as part of the Festival, to complement the guided tours of interiors, including: outdoor walking, cycling and coach guided tours; concerts; seminars; shows; activities for families; a collectors' fair; activities for disabled people; and activities for schools.

Do not miss to meet the RANN’s secretariat which will attend the Art Nouveau and Art Deco Antiques fair organized on Sunday 31 March 2019!

Exhibition Hidden Treasures II at the Leopold Museum in Vienna – from 6 December 2018 to 28 April 2019


Hidden Treasures shines the spotlight on central works from the Leopold Museum which have not been exhibited for a long time due to their precarious state of preservation. The presentation affords exciting insights into the many facets of the collection, which includes paintings by Tina Blau, Kolo Moser and Anton Kolig, graphic works by Lovis Corinth, Bertold Löffler and Maria Likarz-Strauss, as well as important arts-and-crafts objects and items of furniture by Dagobert Peche, Josef Hoffmann and Otto Wagner. At the same time, the presentation reflects one of the key responsibilities of a museum, which, along with research, education and the presentation of artworks, resides in the preservation of art for our cultural memory.

Since the first presentation of the project Hidden Treasures in 2016, we have been able to win numerous patrons whose generous financial involvement will contribute to making these treasures permanently accessible to the public once more. The comparison between already “activated” treasures and those still waiting to be “revived” illustrates the broad spectrum of today’s conservational possibilities, which range from securing the basic substance of an artwork to restoration work concerning appearance or presentation all the way to preventative maintenance.

Exhibition The Advertising Boom at the Museu del Disseny in Barcelona – from 14 December 2018 to 31 March 2019


The Advertising Boom. Tin, cardboard and tile posters. 1890-1950

The exhibition is a tour, from the end of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th, through graphic commercial advertising dedicated especially to the promotion of everyday products: food, wines and cavas, pharmaceuticals, care products, tobacco, machines etc.

Besides popular paper posters, the exhibition highlights how advertising adopted other media such as tin, cardboard and ceramic-tile posters. This led to a much broader distribution of the products advertised, particularly in shops, over counters, in shop windows and on façades.

Two-dimensional tin and cardboard posters and even large-format three-dimensional pieces in the case of cardboard, served as powerful advertisements at shop entrances, often with life-size figures that became popular icons of their day. The purpose was to promote the products’ qualities and advantages, by highlighting in particular the name of the manufacturer, which, in an effort to position itself in the market, began to use design to create an attractive brand image.
