John Ruskin | Artist and Observer
Dates:4.7.2014-28.9.2014
John Ruskin (1819-1900) is renowned as the greatest British art critic of the nineteenth century and the champion of Turner, but his role as an artist remains relatively little known. He was however an outstanding draughtsman and watercolour painter, who especially took inspiration from the natural world and architectural subjects. This exhibition will illustrate, with the finest examples, the range and quality of his drawn and painted work. Gothic palaces in Venice, wild and spectacular Scottish and Alpine landscapes, and minutely defined and brilliantly coloured birds and plants will all be highlights of the show. The loans will chiefly come from the key UK and US collections (both public and private), and the exhibition is a prestigious collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. It is especially fitting that John Ruskin: Artist and Observer should be showcased in Edinburgh, as Ruskin came from a Scottish family, visited Scotland many times, and was a passionate advocate for the beauty of its landscapes and literary heritage. Key episodes in his public and private life were enacted here. A major, scholarly catalogue complementing the exhibition is to be published by the National Gallery of Canada.

John Ruskin | Artist and Observer
Dates:4.7.2014-28.9.2014
John Ruskin (1819—1900) is remembered as Victorian Britain’s leading art critic and as the champion of JMW Turner. But he was also an outstanding artist in his own right. His exquisitely detailed drawings and watercolours were the result of an intense and passionate artistic impulse. This landmark exhibition, for the first time, provides a comprehensive overview of Ruskin’s extraordinary artistic output. The exhibition has been organised by the National Galleries of Scotland and the National Gallery of Canada.

Oskar Kokoschka - Willy Hahn's private collection A Gift to the Kupferstich-Kabinett
Dates:10.7.2014-7.9.2014

Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (SKD) has received a unique gift: 80 sketches and watercolours from Willy Hahn's private collection entered the Kupferstich-Kabinett's collection. The gift is thanks to the son of the collector Willy Hahn: Peter Hahn, the former director of the Berlin Bauhaus-Archiv. He has until now owned this collection, a significant one in terms of art history.

The gift makes an excellent addition to the Dresden collection of 11 drawings, 94 prints and four folders. Oskar Kokoschka has a special connection to Dresden's Kupferstich-Kabinett. In 1919 he became a professor at the local art academy, where he worked until 1923. Soon the Kupferstich-Kabinett was keen to acquire the artist's works. In fact, Kokoschka gave some works to the museum as a gift, though these were seized during the “Degenerate Art” campaign.

Glasgow Style: Arts & Crafts from 1890-1930
Dates:25.7.2014-31.12.2014

The end of the nineteenth century saw Glasgow’s artists emerge as accomplished and talented crafts people. Born at the highly influential Glasgow School of Art and blending together the imagery of the Celtic Revival with influences from Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement, the term ‘the Glasgow Style’ was coined and came to represent this distinctive style developed in the west of Scotland.

This exhibition explores the unique skills of some of the leading makers associated with this period including Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Talwin Morris, Jessie Marion King, Ernest Archibald Taylor and Margaret and Frances Macdonald, showing the strength and prominence of Glaswegian Arts and Crafts.

The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters
Dates:26.7.2014-1.3.2015
A preeminent artist of Belle Époque Paris, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) brought the language of the late-19th-century avant-garde to a broad public through his famous posters, prints, and illustrations for journals and magazines. A cultural nexus, he connected artists, performers, authors, intellectuals, and society figures of his day, creating a bridge between the brothels and society salons of the moment. His work allows entry into many facets of Parisian life, from politics to visual culture and the rise of popular entertainment in the form of cabarets and café-concerts. This exhibition, drawn almost exclusively from The Museum of Modern Art’s stellar collection of posters, lithographs, printed ephemera, and illustrated books, is the first MoMA exhibition in 30 years dedicated solely to Lautrec, and features over 100 examples of the best-known works created during the apex of his career. Organized thematically, the exhibition explores five subjects that together create a portrait of Lautrec’s Paris. A section devoted to café-concerts and dance halls examines the rise of nightlife culture in France through the depiction of famous venues, including the celebrated Moulin Rouge. Another focuses on the actresses, singers, dancers, and performers who sparked the artist’s imagination and served as his muses, including Yvette Guilbert, acclaimed dancer Loie Fuller, and close friend Jane Avril. Lautrec’s sympathetic images of women are evident in a group of works that includes his landmark Elles portfolio, depicting prostitutes during nonworking hours, in quiet moments of introspection. Lautrec’s role in Paris’s artistic community is explored in a section devoted to his creative circle, highlighting designs for song sheets for the popular music that flooded Paris’s café-concerts, programs for the avant-garde theatrical productions that he attended, and his contributions to magazines and intellectual reviews. A final section looks at the pleasures of the capital, from horse racing at Longchamp and promenading on the Bois de Boulogne, to the new fad for ice skating and the enduring appeal of Paris’s culture of gastronomy. The accompanying publication highlights the Museum’s collection of prints and posters by Lautrec, with an introductory essay on the artist and five illustrated thematic sections that explore belle époque Paris as seen through Lautrec’s eyes, by Sarah Suzuki. Organized by Sarah Suzuki, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, MoMA. The exhibition is supported by the MoMA Annual Exhibition Fund. Paint and wallpaper provided by Farrow & Ball.

A Lovosice la reconstruction de la villa du style d’Art Nouveau bientôt achevée
Dates:14.8.2014-14.10.2014

A Lovosice (Bohême de l’Ouest), les travaux de reconstruction de la villa Pfannschmidt sont au point de s’achever. Entrepris en juillet 2013, les travaux ont coûté 55 millions de couronnes (2 millions d’euros). La villa du style d’Art Nouveau sera utilisée comme bibliothèque municipale et comme centre d’information. Le bâtiment a été construit par la famille allemande des fermiers Pfannschmidt, dont un membre était maire de Lovosice entre 1888 et 1891. La famille a été expulsée en Allemagne après la Seconde Guerre mondiale. La villa a été utilisée comme un centre médical jusqu’en 2009. Il s’agit d’un des rares bâtiments historiques conservés dans la ville de Lovosice.

 
Call for papers II coupDefouet International Congress : Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling
Dates:19.8.2014-15.10.2014

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.

The final deadline for submissions is 15 October 2014

Métamorphoses Trois siècles de développement urbain à Schaerbeek
Dates:28.8.2014-31.8.2020
Exposition permanente dès le 28 aout – Galerie de l’Hôtel communal Le long mur au dessus de la salle des guichets va accueillir une exposition, conçue par l’Association pour l’étude du bâti, qui évoque comment Schaerbeek, petit village rural, est devenu la commune de 130.000 habitants que nous connaissons. En 1777 c’est la verte campagne, Schaerbeek compte 1138 habitants essentiellement autour de l’ancienne église St-Servais. On y cultive les légumes et la fameuse griotte. Vers 1850, la ville se déploie, le tracé royal se prolonge sur le territoire de Schaerbeek, on construit l’église Ste-Marie, la gare du Nord. Schaerbeek a désormais 11500 habitants. Dans la seconde moitié du XIXème Victor Besme et Octave Houssa sont les deux visionnaires du développement du grand Bruxelles pour le premier et de Schaerbeek pour le second. Schaerbeek, entre 1890 à 1914, passe de 50000 à 100000 habitants ! Pour cette nouvelle population, la commune s’équipe : un hôtel communal somptueux, des parcs, des écoles, des bâtiments publics et des équipements sportifs…. L’entre deux-guerres voit naitre le quartier Terdelt et celui des Fleurs. Les années 60-70 l’arrivée de la RTBF/VRT et la construction de la tour Brusilia…. Aujourd’hui la zone de la gare Josaphat et le site de la RTBF sont les nouveaux enjeux de la ville de demain. A côté de ces vastes projets, des aménagements locaux, au cœur des quartiers complètent le panorama d’une commune en changement. Une initiative de l’échevinat de l’urbanisme, du patrimoine et de la rénovation urbaine Avec le soutien du Collège des Bourgmestre et Echevins de la Commune de Schaerbeek Conception : L’Association pour l’Étude du Bâti - APEB Scénographie et graphisme : Juliette de Patoul Horaires d’ouverture de l’Hôtel communal Galerie du 1er étage – Accès libre
