Art and Design in the Modern Age: selections from the Wolfsonian Collection
Dates:01/01/2007-31/08/2020

Art and Design in the Modern Age provides an intriguing overview of The Wolfsonian's exceptional holdings and showcases the museum's collection, which spans the period 1885 to 1945. The nearly 300 works on display provide insight into the ways design has influenced and adapted to the modern world. The installation explores the many focal points of The Wolfsonian's collection, including design-reform movements, architecture, urbanism, industrial design, transportation, world's fairs, advertising, political propaganda, and labor iconography.
Inaugurated in November 1996, this ongoing exhibition is periodically updated.

New York
New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture, including the Henry J. Heinz II Galleries
Dates:08/12/2007-31/12/2020

The New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture are reopening with renovated rooms and 8,000 square feet of additional gallery space—the Henry J. Heinz II Galleries—to showcase works from 1800 through the early twentieth century. The renovated galleries feature all of the Museum's most loved nineteenth-century paintings, which have been on permanent display in the past, as well as works by Bonnard, Vuillard, Soutine, Matisse, Picasso, and other early modern artists. Among the many additions are a full-room assembly of "The Wisteria Dining Room," a French art nouveau interior designed by Lucien Levy Dhurmer shortly before World War I that is the only complete example of its kind in the United States; Henry Lerolle's enormous The Organ Rehearsal (a church interior of 1885); a group of newly accessioned nineteenth-century landscape oil sketches; and a selection of rarely exhibited paintings by an international group of artists.

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.
Helsinki
DECADES OF FINNISH ARCHITECTURE 1900–1970
Dates:27/03/2010-31/12/2020
The exhibition explores the history of building in the 20th century against a background of Finnish society, taking into account economic, political and technological developments. These factors have always influenced not only the volume of building but also the architectural shapes. Phenomena connected with construction are viewed from a broad perspective, and from larger to smaller; from urban planning to façade materials and interior decoration.
Copenhagen
Danish and Nordic Art 1750-1900
Dates:28/05/2011-01/01/2035
From the birth of Danish painting through the famous Golden Age of Danish art to the dawn of Modernism. The major features of Danish and Nordic art over 150 years are unfolded in a display that features both an historic overview and special themes of immediate relevance to contempoary life, while also focusing on artists of particular importance. At the same time, this display casts light on some of the more overlooked chapters in the history of Danish art.
Prague 7-Holešovice
"L’Epopée des Slaves" d’Alfons Mucha exposée à Prague après 84 ans d’absence
Dates:10/05/2012-10/05/2017
« L’Epopée des Slaves », l’œuvre magistrale du maître de l’Art Nouveau, est de nouveau exposée à Prague. Mucha avait réalisé ce cycle de 20 toiles pour la capitale tchèque mais il n’y fut exposé qu’une seule fois, en 1928. C’est un événement pour Prague. Mucha avait réalisé cette œuvre comme un testament pour la ville et pour le peuple tchécoslovaque. Les 20 toiles présentent l’histoire des slaves depuis leurs origines (Les Slaves dans leur site préhistorique) jusqu’au XXe siècle (L’Apothéose des Slaves). Dans un contrat passé en 1913 avec l’américain slavophile et mécène Charles Crane, l’artiste avait promis d’offrir son Epopée à Prague à condition que cette dernière construise un bâtiment spécialement pour accueillir le cycle de 20 œuvres. Mais l’édifice ne vit jamais le jour. Depuis le 10 mai 2012, 84 ans plus tard, L’Epopée des Slaves est donc de nouveau dans la capitale tchèque. Le cycle est exposé au même endroit, dans le hall de l’ancien Palais des foires (Veletrzni Palac). Le directeur de la Galerie municipale de Prague a annoncé à l’AFP que l’exposition durerait 5 ans. « De nouveaux systèmes de chauffage, d’air conditionné et d’éclairage ont été installés afin d’assurer des conditions stables pour ces tableaux précieux ».

Secrets of Tiffany Glassmaking
Dates:04/09/2012-04/09/2020

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933) began his work in glass with the same tools and ingredients that had been used by artisans for thousands of years before him. Tiffany took the science of glassmaking, however, and elevated it to an art form of new brilliance and beauty. Under his watch, teams of talented designers and craftspeople translated Tiffany’s all-encompassing vision into some of the most memorable glass creations of our time. Tiffany’s studio system was not a simple enterprise; he needed specialized employees—a hierarchy of artists and artisans—to accomplish his goals. This exhibition, updated and reinstalled on September 4, 2012, addresses the processes that Tiffany’s many companies used to produce everything from glass mosaics and molded buttons to leaded-glass lamps and windows.
