Ljubljana celebrates Fabiani Year - 2015
Dates:01/01/2015-31/12/2015

2015 marks the 150th birth anniversary of the architect Maks Fabiani, whose rich legacy makes him one of the most important Central European architects of the turn of the 20th century. In celebration of the anniversary, Ljubljana will host a programme of exhibitions.

Maks Fabiani, a collaborator of the Viennese architect Otto Wagner, was one of the originators and, in the period 1903–1904, active members of the Austrian Art Nouveau movement, referred to as the Viennese Secession. Due to his active role in the circle of Viennese artists and the famous Art Nouveau buildings he designed in Vienna, Ljubljana, Gorizia, and Trieste in the period between 1899 and 1909, Fabiani contributed to the establishment of the principles of modern architecture. Among other things, he created a new urban development plan for Ljubljana after the devastating earthquake of 1895.

Terrassa
Art Nouveau damast
Dates:17/01/2015-01/11/2015

Stylised floral motifs and graceful birds adorned much table linen in the first quarter of the 20th century. During this period, Dutch linen weaveries invited artists to design damask patterns in this style, known as Art Nouveau or Jugendstil. Damask is often woven in a single colour, white. The subtle, delicate patterns are only revealed when the fabric is viewed from the correct angle. Chris Lebeau gained recognition at that time for his more than 60 eye-catching damask designs. The TextielMuseum made a selection from a series of beautiful damasks, woven in Art Nouveau style in the early 20th century, and presents them from 17 January in the exhibition Art Nouveau damask.

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.

Winter Park, Florida
Selections from the Harry C. Sigman Collection of European and American Decorative Art
Dates:10/02/2015-10/02/2016

In this exhibit, the Museum debuts a selection from Harry C. Sigman’s 2014 gift of 86 objects to the Morse. Sigman, a Los Angeles attorney, began collecting European and American decorative art in 1969, and his gift dovetails with the late 19th- and early 20th-century styles represented in the Morse collection. The donation includes art glass, pottery, metalwork, and furniture. Though comprised mainly of Jeannette and Hugh McKean’s massive gift, the Morse collection has always been supported by generous individuals such as Harry Sigman whose contributions have helped it to grow in important ways. The finely crafted objects on view can be appreciated both individually and in the context of the Museum’s entire collection.

Paris
Au temps de Klimt
Dates:12/02/2015-21/06/2015

La Pinacothèque consacre une exposition à Gustav Klimt du 12 février au 21 juin 2015. Grand représentant de l'Art nouveau à Vienne, Klimt est l'un des pères de la Sécession viennoise : la Pinacothèque revient sur sa carrière en 180 œuvres !

L'exposition Au temps de Klimt, la Sécession à Vienne revient sur le développement de l'art viennois de la fin du XIXe siècle : un renouveau s'opère alors dans les arts à Vienne, grâce à l'Union des Artistes Figuratifs qui veulent offrir à "l'art autrichien une reconnaissance internationale à laquelle il aspire".

L'émancipation artistique de Klimt se fait en 1898, avec le célèbre tableau "Pallas Athenee", utilisé comme affiche pour la première exposition de la Sécession la même année. Gustav Klimt sera critiqué pour son œuvre jugée érotique, à cause de l'utilisation de formes phalliques dans la représentation de femmes fatales.

Si l'exposition se concentre sur l'oeuvre de Klimt, elle présente aussi les travaux qui ont inspiré son œuvre, ceux de Max Kurzwell, Théodor Hörmann ou bien Carl Schuch, ainsi que les grands chefs d'oeuvre de la Sécession et de l'avant-garde autrichienne.

Paris
In the time of Klimt - The Vienna Secession
Dates:12/02/2015-21/06/2015

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.

Schaerbeek- Bruxelles
Fermeture temporaire de la Maison Autrique à Bruxelles – du 16 février au 31 décembre 2015
Dates:16/02/2015-31/12/2015

En raison de travaux de restauration portant sur les façades et d’une actualisation de la scénographie, l’ouverture au public sera réduite dès le lundi 16 février 2015 et jusqu’à la fin de l’année. Durant cette période seuls seront possibles des événements ponctuels et visites sur rendez-vous, en fonction du calendrier du chantier.

Depuis dix ans, la Maison Autrique est ouverte au public grâce à la détermination conjointe de plusieurs amis et à l’intervention de la Commune de Schaerbeek qui s’est portée acquéreur du bien. François Schuiten et Benoît Peeters sont à l’origine du projet de réhabilitation de cette œuvre de jeunesse du célèbre Victor Horta. Ils en ont fait une « maison des maisons», une habitation poétique suspendue dans le temps.
