Exhibition: Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau and Utopia
From 11.07.2013 to 22.09.2013
Hangaram Art Museum, Seoul Art Center, Korea
Organised by The Mucha Foundation
Presenting approximately 200 works, including posters, drawings, paintings, decorative works, as well as books and photographs, Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau and Utopia will highlight six aspects of Mucha: as a Bohemian in Paris; the creator of ?le style Mucha´; a cosmopolitan; a mystic; a patriot; and an artist-philosopher. Through these aspects, the exhibition will show the development of his career and how he grew as a man, living through one of the most tumultuous times in European history.
The exhibition traces the influence of Mucha´s Czech roots and his passionate love of his country on all aspects of his career, from the early pamphlets and illustrated magazines in support of patriotic organisations in Ivančice, through the lean times living as an outsider of the French establishment in Paris and the years of celebrity following his breakthrough poster Gismonda for Sarah Bernhardt, and during the years spent in the preparation and fulfilment of his masterpiece The Slav Epic. It examines the way in which Mucha´s love for his homeland and Utopian ideals are manifested throughout his artistic career in all his work. And it demonstrates Mucha´s belief in the universality of art and its power to inspire and communicate with people and his vision that through the power of art he could work towards the spiritual union of the Slavs and, eventually, all mankind.
The exhibition will be arranged thematically in six sections. The installation will be accompanied by a large-screen projection of The Slav Epic cycle (1911-28), as well as an interactive display of a selection of illustrated books.
Exhibition: A Shot of Rhythm and color: English Textile Design of the Late 19th Century
From 06.02.2013 to 13.10.2013
Organised by MAK-Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst/Gegenwartskunst
This exhibition presents a representative selection of English fabrics from the MAK Collection of Textiles and Carpets. These textiles were purchased in England for the museum and presented to the Viennese public while they were still new. Hence, Vienna´s artists and tradespeople got to know and took inspiration from these innovative, English-designed products even prior to 1900, as is shown prominently in the new Vienna 1900 exhibit of the MAK Permanent Collection. The best-known English designers of their era, figures including William Morris, Walter Crane and Charles F. A. Voysey, are represented in this showing by fabric and wallpaper designs characterized above all by generously dimensioned repeat patterns as well as patterns derived from plants and flowers.
