"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 ».

Praha 1
Vital Art Nouveau 1900
Dates:19/03/2014-31/12/2015
The exhibition to be held in the Municipal House in Prague will present a selection of the most outstanding works of Czech and European Art Nouveau art from the holdings of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague. The exhibition is intended to show the Art Nouveau arts and crafts as part of the ground-breaking, forward-looking trends and emancipation efforts that evolved in the late 19th century, as a reformist art movement that strove for “the multiplication and intensification of life”. The display will therefore explore the Art Nouveau aesthetic both in terms of modern artist designers' creative ambitions and the new zest for life that swept society as a whole. Masterpieces of decorative art exhibited at the famous Paris World’s Fair of 1900 will be on display, alongside works influenced by the various currents of thought popular at the time (such as the theories of Vitalism and Spiritism), as well as the formal and stylistic innovations in glassware, ceramics and furniture. Other areas will cover the radical changes in life style as reflected in interior design, the visual style of poster art and fashion. A self-service multimedia tablets presentation will be available to visitors, which will provide further information on selected items on view, their creators and the period context. The presentation will also offer 3D scans of Art Nouveau objects that were produced in the framework of the Partage Plus European project, along with online access to digitized foundations for European Art Nouveau art on the Europeana portal, drawn from the collections of prominent European institutions. A comprehensive catalogue featuring more than 400 items on display will be published to accompany the exhibition. Open daily 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. 24.12. open 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., 31.12. open 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Schaerbeek- Bruxelles
Fermeture temporaire de la Maison Autrique à Bruxelles – du 16 février au 31 décembre 2015
Dates:16/02/2015-31/12/2015

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.

Wally Neuzil - Her Life with Egon Schiele
Dates:27/02/2015-1/06/2015

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. Featured in the presentation will be eminent paintings by Schiele, such as “Death and the Maiden”, an important loan from the Belvedere, as well as drawings and watercolors by Schiele for which Wally acted as a model. The exhibition comprises works from the Leopold Museum, the Leopold Private Collection as well as loans from Austrian and international collections.

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.

Oscar Wilde's Salomé: Illustrating death and desire
Dates:7/02/2015-10/05/2015

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was an Irish writer and poet who became one of London’s most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Wilde’s retelling of the beheading of John the Baptist became the controversial play, Salomé, and was banned on the London stage in 1893. Illustrators have been attracted to its rhythmic prose and subject matter ever since. Oscar Wilde’s Salomé: Illustrating Death and Desire presents the complete sets of the first and the most recent illustrations inspired by tragedy, including lithographs by symbolist artis Aubrey Vincent Beardsley (1872–1898) and engravings by Barry Moser (b. 1940). Books and periodicals featuring illustrations by Louis Jou, André Derain, and Valenti Angelo, among others, will also be on view.

Secrets of Tiffany Glassmaking
Dates:4/09/2012-4/09/2020

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.
