Oskar Kokoschka. Humanist and Rebel
Dates:26.4.2014-17.8.2014
The Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg is celebrating its 20th birthday. The new building opened its doors in 1994 with a major survey exhibition dedicated to the French artist Fernand Léger entitled The Rhythm of Modern Life. 1911–1924. The Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg will now mark its 20th anniversary with a show devoted to the portraiture of another great classic modern artist, Oskar Kokoschka (1886–1980). Circa 55 paintings, 138 works on paper and numerous documents demonstrate the evolution of Kokoschka’s artistic talents based on portrait painting. The exhibition’s eleven chapters examine his early Viennese period (works for the Wiener Werkstätten and the Kunstschau), the Berlin years from 1910 to 1916 (the collaboration with Herwarth Walden and his contributions for “Der Sturm”) and his time in Dresden from 1916 to 1923. The exhibition will focus in particular on Alma Mahler and Kokoschka’s proximity to music, on his portraits of children, allegorical women’s portraits, political allegories, animal pictures and especially his self-portraiture. The golden thread running through this exhibition is Kokoschka’s own person: the people he knew and his view of humanity and society. Kokoschka’s portraits of persons and animals embody the essence of his outlook on the world. The show consequently presents a unique personal perspective of the 20th century and its significant events. Kokoschka evolved a style that suddenly also seems very contemporary. An exhibition in collaboration with the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam.

And yet there was Art!
Dates:9.5.2014-15.9.2014
Austria 1914–1918 The assassination of the Austrian heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, on the 28th of June 1914 in Sarajevo was the fatal trigger of World War I. One hundred years on, the Leopold Museum is dedicating a comprehensive exhibition to the fate of Austrian artists (Egon Schiele, Albin Egger-Lienz, Anton Kolig, Kolo Moser, Gustav Klimt...) who were active between 1914 and 1918. Selected works by contemporary artists from Italy, Romania, Russia and Serbia – the countries that Austria-Hungary fought on the frontlines during World War I – create a connection to the present. Presented in the exhibition are 200 works, 40 of which hail from the collection of the Leopold Museum, 30 from the Leopold Collection II and 130 from public and private Austrian and international lenders. The historical objects are complemented by contemporary art interventions.

Help is better than sympathy Frank Brangwyn and the First World War
Dates:24.5.2014-14.9.2014
At the start of the First World War, more than a million Belgian refugees fled the advancing armies, seeking sanctuary abroad. Around 250,000 made it to England – one of the largest groups of refugees in British history - and found a sympathetic welcome. Local relief committees formed all over the country, raising funds to sustain them during their time in exile. The exhibition takes its title from a poster designed by Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) for the Belgian & Allies Aid League. “Will you help these sufferers from the war to start a new home”, it asks. “Help is better than sympathy.” Bruges-born Brangwyn, already a well-known and successful artist before 1914, became a prolific poster-maker during the war and his designs became synonymous with First World War propaganda. Many present the horrors of the war, while others aim to recruit soldiers and vilify the enemy. One propaganda poster in particular was so violent that the German Kaiser allegedly put a price on Brangwyn’s head. Help is better than sympathy presents some of Brangwyn’s best known posters, including ‘The Retreat from Antwerp’, alongside lesser known work. Shown together they offer an opportunity to examine Brangwyn’s attitude to the First World War, and the Belgian refugees in particular, using the Gallery’s rich collection. Find out more about Frank Brangwyn by exploring the Frank Brangwyn theme or by browsing the collection online. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

Rossetti's Obsession Images of Jane Morris
Dates:4.10.2014-4.1.2015
Jane Morris (née Burden) was the wife of William Morris, and the favoured model of Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. In his maturity Rossetti drew and painted Jane with an obsessional intensity and she was cast in many literary and mythological roles, including Dante's Beatrice, Pandora, Proserpine and Astarte. Whether in direct or symbolic guise, Jane's features are depicted with a sombre intensity that offer a glimpse into Rossetti's troubled soul. The exhibition, marking the centenary of Jane's death, brings together compelling and rarely seen drawings and pastel studies of Jane by Rossetti. The exhibition also features images of Jane as herself and explores her life and interests beyond modelling. Jane Morris (1839-1914) was a talented embroiderer, linguist and musician and played a role in the family business Morris & Co. The recent publication of her letters (The Collected Letters of Jane Morris, edited by Jan Marsh and Frank C. Sharp, 2012), gives an unparalleled insight into her interests and personality, balancing the sullen and silent impression that Rossetti's paintings have immortalised. Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) was the leading member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. His depictions of Jane ensured that her face became the iconic image of Pre-Raphaelite womanhood. A touring exhibition in partnership with Bradford Museums and Galleries. The exhibition is kindly supported by Farrow & Ball, Islington. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

Tunis
L’Art nouveau à Tunis (1900 - 1905)
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
Dans un Tunis bicéphale, «arabe» du côté de la médina, « européen » du côté du quartier de la Marine, la modernité fait irruption avec la naissance du XXe siècle sous la forme d’un style architectural éclos à Bruxelles en 1893 et qu’on appelle Art Nouveau. Durant une quinquennie, ce style va fleurir sur les façades et à l’intérieur d’immeubles qui viennent doter la ville européenne d’un souffle de vie qui contraste singulièrement avec la banalité d’une architecture fonctionnelle, certes, mais guère esthétique. Album commenté de ces immeubles qui égaillent la ville moderne. Description matérielle : 1 vol. (41 p.) : photogr. ; 27 cm

Around 1914: Design in a New Age
Dates:24.7.2014-31.3.2015
European Galleries, Level 3 One hundred years ago, the ROM opened its doors to the public. Europe was plunged into the Great War.

With works by key designers of this era including: Christopher Dresser, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Archibald Knox, Charles Robert Ashbee, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Frank Lloyd Wright, Emile Gallé, Edward Colonna, Taxile Doat, Louis Majorelle, Carlo Bugatti, Galileo Chini, Chris van der Hoef, Georg Jensen, Otto Wagner, Josef Hoffmann, Gustave Siegel Josef Maria Olbrich, Peter Behrens, Max Laeuger, Richard Riemerschmid, and Walter Gropius.

Le symbolisme suisse Destins croisés avec l'art européen
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
Le triomphe du rêve Après une période de discrétion, le symbolisme revient sur le devant de la scène. Il ouvre la voie aux grands mouvements du XXe siècle, comme le surréalisme, l’expressionnisme, l’abstraction et « l’art des aliénés », en élargissant les frontières, en explorant de nouveaux territoires. Le symbolisme se développe en Suisse dans les quatre cultures, d’où l’étiquette de « Mitteleuropa » qui lui est souvent attribuée. Entre la fin du XIXe et le début du XXe siècle, les interconnexions culturelles sont intenses au niveau européen. Les artistes se déplacent fréquemment et s’intéressent particulièrement à l’évolution générale des travaux réalisés dans le domaine spirituel ou ésotérique. Ils explorent aussi l’hypnotisme, la psychologie, la psychanalyse naissante (Flournoy à Genève, Charcot à Paris, Freud à Vienne…). L’activité des artistes symbolistes est influencée par la poésie, la musique, la danse ainsi que le renouvellement de la mise en scène. Le triomphe du rêve, l’exploration de l’inconscient, les îles de l’imaginaire, le miroir des lacs et l’obscurité des forêts, la fascination du cosmos ou le questionnement des mythes sont autant de thèmes que l’on retrouve dans l’oeuvre de Ferdinand Hodler, Arnold Böcklin, Carlos Schwabe, Félix Vallotton, Giovanni Segantini, Augusto et Giovanni Giacometti… dont une analyse subtile permet de comprendre la valeur et l’importance. Cet ouvrage est également disponible en version allemande. français 336 pages 250 illustrations en couleur 24 x 30 cm Relié sous jaquette ISBN: 978-3-7165-1536-5 Date de publication : 4/2009
