The furniture design of Viennese Modernism
Dates:21/03/2018-07/10/2018

Wagner, Hoffmann, Loos and the furniture design of Viennese Modernism Viennese Modernism Around 1900 was a true laboratory for design in furniture design, whose creative impulses radiate to this day. The artist architects of Vienna were among the pioneers of modern design. The Hofmobiliendepot - Möbel Museum Wien introduces the leading architects of Viennese Modernism - Otto Wagner (1841-1918), Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) and Adolf Loos (1870-1933) - as interior designers and furniture designers and sheds light on their different positions on living and set up.

Wien
Beyond Klimt : New Horizons in Central Europe
Dates:23/03/2018-26/08/2018

Gustav Klimt is probably the artist most associated with Austrian art. His death in 1918 – the same year as the deaths of Egon Schiele, Koloman Moser, and Otto Wagner – is seen as the end of an era. However, their influence on the art world had waned even before this. Only peripherally affected by the political turmoil, a vibrant art scene developed in the countries of the Austro-Hungarian Empire with artists striving for change. The exhibition at the Lower Belvedere will guide you through this post-Klimt era. The interwar years are characterized by the wish for international connections that transcended new political and ideological boundaries. There was a vibrant exchange of ideas between artists resulting in constructivist, expressionist, and fantastical trends. Cosmopolitan networks emerged among the artists of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire while art magazines made an increasingly important contribution to disseminating these new ideas. The outbreak of the Second World War brought this internationalism to an abrupt end and the sense of a shared culture faded, once again, into the background. The exhibition seeks to reveal the parallels during this period and demonstrate continuity and change in the art of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and its successor nation states. Featuring works by around eighty artists including Josef Capek, Friedl Dicker-Brandeis, Albin Egger-Lienz, Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Koloman Moser, Antonin Prochaska, Egon Schiele, Lajos Tihanyi, and many more. Curator: Alexander Klee

Amsterdam
Van Gogh & Japan
Dates:23/03/2018-24/06/2018

Van Gogh created his own image of Japan by studying and reading about Japanese art, collecting and copying prints, and discussing their aesthetic qualities with other artists. His encounter with Japanese prints helped him to give his work a new direction. The exhibition will demonstrate, step by step, how Van Gogh bent the Japanese example to his will. In this way he defined himself as a modern artist and positioned himself opposite such artists as Emile Bernard and Paul Gauguin. The size, nature and importance of Van Gogh’s own collection of Japanese prints will be explored in detail, as will the role played by his prints in the renewal of his own idiom.

Saint-Gilles - Bruxelles
Horta and the light
Dates:27/03/2018-24/06/2018

From the Hotel Tassel to the Central station The evocation of nature and rational construction inspired by nature are the basic building blocks of Victor Horta’s architecture and of the living environment of its inhabitants and users. By placing a light metallic frame at the heart of his architecture, he opens up spaces and creates an extraordinary method for capturing daylight and at the same time creating a stunning Chiaroscuro effect that plays with light and darkness. The exhibition revisits the work of Victor Horta through the theme of light, from the Tassel Hotel to the Central Station.

Glasgow
Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Making the Glasgow Style
Dates:30/03/2018-14/08/2018

2018 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of celebrated Glasgow architect, designer and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928). Glasgow Museums is delighted to celebrate this significant anniversary with a major new temporary exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. This exhibition will be one of the key events in the city-wide Mackintosh 2018 programme. The exhibition will span the lifetime of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928) and taking a chronological and thematic narrative, placing Mackintosh at the core of the story, it will present his work in the context of Glasgow, his key predecessors, influences and contemporaries, particularly those working in the Glasgow Style. ‘The Glasgow Style’ is the popular term given to the design and decorative arts centred around the work by teachers, students and graduates of The Glasgow School of Art produced between about 1890 and 1920. At the core of this style is the work of The Four: Charles Rennie Mackintosh, his future wife Margaret Macdonald, her younger sister Frances Macdonald and Frances’s future husband, James Herbert McNair. Glasgow was the birthplace of the only Art Nouveau ‘movement’ in the UK and its style made ripples internationally. This exhibition will present the very best of Glasgow’s internationally important civic collections, drawing from both those of Glasgow Museums and The Mitchell Library and Archives. A number of these civic works have never previously been on public display, and the majority has not been shown in Glasgow for 30 or more years. The exhibition will also include important loans from private and public collections. About 250 objects will be on display across the full spectrum of media, including stained glass, ceramics, mosaic, metalwork, furniture, stencilling, embroidery, graphics, books, interiors and architecture. The act of making will be communicated across this breadth of media – both through the exhibition and the accompanying event programme – to truly engage and inspire audiences of all ages to visit the other Mackintosh-related buildings and collections in and around Glasgow, and to make and create.
