Boston
Visiting Masterpiece Gustav Klimt’s "Adam and Eve"
Dates:17/01/2015-27/04/2015

For the first time in its history, the MFA will exhibit a painting by Gustav Klimt—among the most important artists of the early 20th century.

Adam and Eve (1917–18) will be on loan from the Belvedere Museum in Vienna as part of the MFA’s Visiting Masterpiece series, giving visitors a taste of the artist’s signature style, including his sensuous approach to the nude, his bold experiments with pattern, color, and finish, and his exploration of human consciousness and desire. The work will be juxtaposed with the MFA’s life-sized study of a nude couple, Two Nudes (Lovers) (1913), painted by Klimt’s Viennese friend and colleague, Oskar Kokoschka. No more than five years separate the two paintings, which share many features—ambitious scale, daring experiments with form and finish, and, above all, a fascination with sexuality. Each is, in its own way, a product of Freud’s Vienna, but also of a singular artist with a singular vision.

Budapest
Lechner, A Creative Genius
Dates:19/11/2014-31/05/2015

In 2014 the Museum commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Ödön Lechner (1845–1914), one of the greatest Hungarian architects and one of the original geniuses of the European architectural scene at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. To mark this anniversary, the Institute of Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest are jointly organizing an international conference and an exhibition.

This exhibition presents the whole scope of the work of the architect Ödön Lechner. Special attention is paid to five major works, nominated for UNESCO World Heritage Site status: the Kecskemét City Hall, the parish church of Budapest-Kőbánya, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Institute of Geology, and the Postal Savings Bank. Visitors can familiarise themselves with these through the architect’s original plans and drawings, as well as period and modern photographs. Working drawings of the ornaments so crucial to Lechner’s work, the publications which inspired him, and examples of the Zsolnay ceramic in which they were realized are also presented. One of the rooms evokes the world of the Japan Coffee House, Lechner’s second home, another acommodates a panoramic movie of his major works.

Paris
Le vitrail: comment prendre soin d'un patrimoine fragile?
Dates:08/07/2015-10/07/2015

Les vitraux sont un patrimoine fragile, mince paroi de verre et de plomb qui clôt les baies des nombreux édifices civils et religieux depuis le Haut Moyen Âge. Leur fragilité, qui les soumet, sans grande défense, aux intempéries, à la pollution, parfois au vandalisme, a de tout temps nécessité des interventions régulières d’entretien, de réparation, de restauration, souvent de remplacement. Au-delà des opérations spectaculaires de restauration où l’on applique les techniques les plus avancées de nettoyage ou de protection, les interventions plus modestes de simple entretien, de soins de base, méritent attention, car elles ont un rôle fondamental dans la préservation à long terme des verrières anciennes et modernes. Au temps où la crise économique touche de nombreux pays, il est opportun de réfléchir à une approche de conservation qui s’adapte, dans les meilleures conditions pour les œuvres, à de nouvelles contraintes financières.

 

Appel à communications à soumettre avant le 15 novembre 2014.

Alesund
The Norwegian Japonism
Dates:26/09/2014-07/04/2015

“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.

Maisons-Alfort
L’Avènement de la modernité, parcours dans le XVIème arrondissement de Paris
Dates:11/04/2015-11/04/2015

Une déambulation dans le quartier d’Auteuil, à Paris, nous fera découvrir les principales œuvres de l’architecte Hector Guimard. Nous croiserons également des réalisations de Robert Mallet-Stevens, d'Henri Sauvage, et finirons par l'une de réalisations majeures de Le Corbusier: la villa Laroche. Dans un écart de temps de construction relativement restreint, nous serons ainsi confrontés à des architectures très diverses, mais toutes riches et inventives.
