Au temps de Klimt
Dates:12.2.2015-21.6.2015

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:12.2.2015-21.6.2015

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.

Schaerbeek- Bruxelles
Fermeture temporaire de la Maison Autrique à Bruxelles – du 16 février au 31 décembre 2015
Dates:16.2.2015-31.12.2015

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.

Wien
Wally Neuzil - Her Life with Egon Schiele
Dates:27.2.2015-1.6.2015

The painting “Wally”, housed by the Vienna Leopold Museum, is among the most well-known works by Egon Schiele. The upcoming exhibition at the Leopold Museum seeks to uncover the person behind the portrait, Walburga “Wally” Neuzil (1894-1917), approaching her through artworks, autographs, photographs and documents.

The exhibition examines the stages of Wally’s life, her professions, from model to nurse, and tells the tale of a woman’s fate in fin-de-siècle Vienna, between self-sacrifice and self-fulfillment, between a life without taboos and profound humanity.
