Vital Art Nouveau 1900
Dates:19/03/2014-31/12/2015
The 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.

Métamorphoses Trois siècles de développement urbain à Schaerbeek
Dates:28/08/2014-31/08/2020
Exposition permanente dès le 28 aout – Galerie de l’Hôtel communal Le long mur au dessus de la salle des guichets va accueillir une exposition, conçue par l’Association pour l’étude du bâti, qui évoque comment Schaerbeek, petit village rural, est devenu la commune de 130.000 habitants que nous connaissons. En 1777 c’est la verte campagne, Schaerbeek compte 1138 habitants essentiellement autour de l’ancienne église St-Servais. On y cultive les légumes et la fameuse griotte. Vers 1850, la ville se déploie, le tracé royal se prolonge sur le territoire de Schaerbeek, on construit l’église Ste-Marie, la gare du Nord. Schaerbeek a désormais 11500 habitants. Dans la seconde moitié du XIXème Victor Besme et Octave Houssa sont les deux visionnaires du développement du grand Bruxelles pour le premier et de Schaerbeek pour le second. Schaerbeek, entre 1890 à 1914, passe de 50000 à 100000 habitants ! Pour cette nouvelle population, la commune s’équipe : un hôtel communal somptueux, des parcs, des écoles, des bâtiments publics et des équipements sportifs…. L’entre deux-guerres voit naitre le quartier Terdelt et celui des Fleurs. Les années 60-70 l’arrivée de la RTBF/VRT et la construction de la tour Brusilia…. Aujourd’hui la zone de la gare Josaphat et le site de la RTBF sont les nouveaux enjeux de la ville de demain. A côté de ces vastes projets, des aménagements locaux, au cœur des quartiers complètent le panorama d’une commune en changement. Une initiative de l’échevinat de l’urbanisme, du patrimoine et de la rénovation urbaine Avec le soutien du Collège des Bourgmestre et Echevins de la Commune de Schaerbeek Conception : L’Association pour l’Étude du Bâti - APEB Scénographie et graphisme : Juliette de Patoul Horaires d’ouverture de l’Hôtel communal Galerie du 1er étage – Accès libre

II coupDefouet International Congress: Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling
Dates:25/06/2015-28/06/2015

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.

Revival and Reform—Eclecticism in the 19th-Century Environment
Dates:21/10/2014-21/10/2015

The Arts window by J. & R. Lamb Studios is the centerpiece of this major new exhibition that illustrates the rich diversity of styles that made up the aesthetic environment of the late 19th century in both Europe and America. Lamb Studios, a prominent American glasshouse of the era, exhibited the 1894 neoclassical window widely. In preparation for its debut at the Morse, the window, more than eight feet in diameter, underwent extensive conservation. The installation features 20 additional leaded-glass windows and selections of art glass, pottery, and furniture, a number of which also have never been exhibited. Other windows on view—some avant-garde, others reviving the past—include examples by Tiffany Studios, John LaFarge, Frank Lloyd Wright, Edward Burne-Jones, Donald MacDonald, and Heaton, Butler & Bayne.

The Bride Elect—Gifts from the 1905 Wedding of Elizabeth Owens Morse
Dates:10/02/2015-10/02/2016

In 1905 Elizabeth Owens Morse, the daughter of Charles Hosmer Morse and Martha Owens Morse, married Richard Genius. The gift registry of this socially prominent Chicago bride—entitled “The Bride Elect”—survives in the Morse Museum’s archive, showing more than 250 gifts. Together these items provide a snapshot of the era, a glimpse into 1905 gift-giving traditions, and some insight into popular retail decisions made by wealthy consumers in the Chicago area. In this new exhibition, the Morse presents a representative group of the lovely gifts that survive from the Morse-Genius wedding, including Tiffany art glass, Rookwood pottery, and Gorham silver.
