Hokusai
Dates:5.4.2015-9.8.2015

Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was the first Japanese artist to be internationally recognized, and he continues to inspire artists around the world. As the home of the largest and finest collection of Japanese art outside Japan—including the greatest variety of Hokusai works in any museum—the MFA is uniquely positioned to offer a comprehensive exhibition of this remarkable artist. Drawing from extensive holdings of paintings, woodblock prints, and illustrated printed books, the Museum will showcase an array of works from Hokusai’s seven-decade career, including lesser-known pieces depicting whimsical instructions on how to draw, dynamic paintings on paper lanterns, and elaborate cut-out dioramas. Also displayed are some of the most famous images in Japanese art, including Under the Wave Off Kanagawa (Great Wave) (about 1830–31)—from the legendary series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji—and the brilliantly colored multi-panel screen painting Phoenix (1835). Spanning Hokusai’s work from his 20s through his 80s, the exhibition will explore common themes through sections dedicated to topics such as landscapes, nature, fantasy, and the “Floating World” of urban culture (including depictions of the Kabuki theater and the Yoshiwara pleasure district). Works that depict Japanese historical and literary motifs will be featured along with “perspective prints” with exaggerated vanishing points, often used in toy peep shows. An extremely delicate silk square of a mythological Chinese lion, likely used as a gift wrapper (fukusa), will also be included, in a rare public display of the fragile work. An illustrated publication will accompany the exhibition.

II coupDefouet International Congress: Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling
Dates:25.6.2015-28.6.2015

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.

Paris
In the time of Klimt - The Vienna Secession
Dates:12.2.2015-21.6.2015

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.

Berlin
Jugendstil
Dates:16.9.2014-16.9.2015

As of now, the Brohan Museum in a changing exhibition architecture, a new presentation of the rich holdings of the Art Nouveau period to see. Be shown, for example, works of the Paris World Fair in 1900, the Arts and Crafts movement, the Wiener Werkstätte, artists and companies such as Alfons Mucha, Alfred Grenander, Henry van de Velde, Johann Loetz., Peter Behrens and Bruno Paul. The exhibition features furniture, artwork, porcelain, glass, textiles and metal.

The Art Nouveau is represented in the new presentation as a social phenomenon. Whatever one may call the movement - whether Jugendstil, Art Nouveau, Secession style or Stile Liberty - it was more than just a style. Behind this was rather an attempt to develop a new, comprehensive all areas of life aesthetics. There creative answers were sought on contradictions, which were connected directly or indirectly with industrialization. Nature was not only a source of inspiration for a new ornamentation, but also a model for a better life model. Symbolism, dreamy and fairytale worlds shaped the motives and were often rather unpleasant reality of everyday life.
