This competition, which participation is free, arises in order to pay homage to the amazing heritage of the Italian Art Nouveau; for instance: houses, palaces, monuments, sculptures and applied arts. The Italian Liberty photographic contest represents a great opportunity to create passion about Beauty and Values promoted by the Liberty association.

II coupDefouet International Congress: Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling
Dates:25/06/2015-28/06/2015

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.

Barcelona
Museum of Catalan Modernista Art
Dates:19/03/2010-31/12/2015
Barcelona's first museum devoted exclusively to Modernisme opened on 19 March 2010. Containing works by leading Catalan artists, it is housed in a Modernista building at Carrer Balmes 48, designed by architect Enric Sagnier. The museum is the result of a private initiative by art collectors and gallery owners Fernando Pinós and Maria Guirao, who have assembled in an area of 1,000 square metres a total of 350 works in the fields of painting, sculpture and the decorative arts. The 42 artists represented include Gaudí, Busquets, Llimona, Arnau, Casas, Renart, Rusiñol, Gargallo and Anglada Camarassa.
Berlin
Jugendstil
Dates:16/09/2014-16/09/2015

As of now, the Brohan Museum in a changing exhibition architecture, a new presentation of the rich holdings of the Art Nouveau period to see. Be shown, for example, works of the Paris World Fair in 1900, the Arts and Crafts movement, the Wiener Werkstätte, artists and companies such as Alfons Mucha, Alfred Grenander, Henry van de Velde, Johann Loetz., Peter Behrens and Bruno Paul. The exhibition features furniture, artwork, porcelain, glass, textiles and metal.

The Art Nouveau is represented in the new presentation as a social phenomenon. Whatever one may call the movement - whether Jugendstil, Art Nouveau, Secession style or Stile Liberty - it was more than just a style. Behind this was rather an attempt to develop a new, comprehensive all areas of life aesthetics. There creative answers were sought on contradictions, which were connected directly or indirectly with industrialization. Nature was not only a source of inspiration for a new ornamentation, but also a model for a better life model. Symbolism, dreamy and fairytale worlds shaped the motives and were often rather unpleasant reality of everyday life.

Boston
Hokusai
Dates:05/04/2015-09/08/2015

Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was the first Japanese artist to be internationally recognized, and he continues to inspire artists around the world. As the home of the largest and finest collection of Japanese art outside Japan—including the greatest variety of Hokusai works in any museum—the MFA is uniquely positioned to offer a comprehensive exhibition of this remarkable artist. Drawing from extensive holdings of paintings, woodblock prints, and illustrated printed books, the Museum will showcase an array of works from Hokusai’s seven-decade career, including lesser-known pieces depicting whimsical instructions on how to draw, dynamic paintings on paper lanterns, and elaborate cut-out dioramas. Also displayed are some of the most famous images in Japanese art, including Under the Wave Off Kanagawa (Great Wave) (about 1830–31)—from the legendary series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji—and the brilliantly colored multi-panel screen painting Phoenix (1835). Spanning Hokusai’s work from his 20s through his 80s, the exhibition will explore common themes through sections dedicated to topics such as landscapes, nature, fantasy, and the “Floating World” of urban culture (including depictions of the Kabuki theater and the Yoshiwara pleasure district). Works that depict Japanese historical and literary motifs will be featured along with “perspective prints” with exaggerated vanishing points, often used in toy peep shows. An extremely delicate silk square of a mythological Chinese lion, likely used as a gift wrapper (fukusa), will also be included, in a rare public display of the fragile work. An illustrated publication will accompany the exhibition.

Bruxelles
Métamorphoses Trois siècles de développement urbain à Schaerbeek
Dates:28/08/2014-31/08/2020
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
