Travelling exhibition The Nature of Art Nouveau at the Palacio del Segundo Cabo in La Habana
The Nature of Art Nouveau reveals the role that nature had in the Art Nouveau and how much it was the source of inspiration for the artists at the turn of 19th to 20th century.
Conceived by the Catalan art historian Teresa-M. Sala, The Nature of Art Nouveau is an exhibition based on both encyclopedic information and individual experimentation.
Using photographs and documents, together with a dynamic scenography created by Antoni Garau, it offers a concise view of Art Nouveau yet also aims to bring vividly to life the “perfumes, sounds and hues” of the natural world.
Organised by the Réseau Art Nouveau Network in the framework of the European project “Art Nouveau & Ecology” (2010-2015) supported by the Culture 2007-2013 programme of the European Commission, the exhibition comprises two identical concurrent exhibitions and travels to all partner cities since October 2013.
After Glasgow, the exhibition The Nature of Art Nouveau will be presented for the second time in La Habana at the Palacio del Segundo Cabo from spring 2016, with the support of the Brussels Capital Region.
This exhibition is free.
