What are young artists who live and work in Vienna interested in? What subjects are in the air, what strategies do they use? The exhibition On the New. Young Scenes in Vienna is conceived as a stroll through local art communities: it brings together 18 individual artistic approaches as well as 12 independent exhibition spaces. In this show, specifically produced works are juxtaposed with specially arranged exhibitions within the exhibition; artistic and curatorial formats combine to create a dynamic entity that will change over the course of the show.
Tate Modern unveils a major exhibition of the work of pioneering artist Dorothea Tanning (1910-2012). Organised in collaboration with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, it is the first large-scale exhibition of her work for 25 years and the first ever to span Tanning’s remarkable seven-decade career. Bringing together some 100 works from across the globe, over a third of which are shown in the UK for the first time, the exhibition explores how she expanded the language of surrealism. From her early enigmatic paintings, to her ballet designs, uncanny stuffed textile sculptures, installations and large- scale late works, it offers a rare opportunity to experience the artist’s unique internal world.

Ornament as Promise was the premise of the Pattern and Decoration movement in the United States (1975–1985). In this exhibition, mumok presents the rich collection of works from this movement of Peter and Irene Ludwig, in the largest presentation of Pattern and Decoration in German-speaking Europe since the 1980s. With oriental-style mosaics, monumental textile collages, paintings, installations, and performances, in the 1970s committed feminist artists like Miriam Schapiro, Joyce Kozloff, Valerie Jaudon, and Robert Kushner aimed to bring color, formal diversity, and emotion back into art. Decoration played a key role, with its connotations of the techniques of artisanship. Various ornamental traditions, from the Islamic world to North American Indians to Art Deco, were incorporated in their works, opening up a view beyond geographical and historical boundaries. A proximity to folk art was sought as a deliberate counter to the “purism” of the art of the 1960s.
American artist Anne Collier (*1970) questions the medium of photography by working with found materials from popular culture. Her conceptual works are based primarily on photos of the 1970s and 1980s, gleaned from magazines, advertising, record covers, book illustrations and film stills. By photographing these printed images and putting them into new contexts, she pursues a reflexive archaeology of the uses of photography. Collier is interested, above all, in images with an emotive visual undertone, such as waves, eyes, clouds and romanticised sexism. With analytical elegance, Collier reflects the deceptive imagery that shapes our everyday lives and, in doing so, reveals the tension between the photographic subject and the act of photographing.
In a comprehensive survey of her oeuvre that represents the key phases of her artistic career, Swiss artist Miriam Cahn shows vibrant works on paper, oil paintings in bewitching colours, monumental sculptures, performative videos, and sketchbooks. (…) The title Miriam Cahn has chosen for the exhibition – I AS HUMAN – revolves around the artist’s deliberate and implicit commitment toward humanistic principles and the question of what comprises humanity at present. The artist’s images and exhibitions articulate, in an unequivocal and palpably visible and cogent way, her preoccupation with war, displacement and gender relations as well as her investigation of violence, love and the fragility of nature.

The sounds design objects make are often just as characteristic as their design. And so from 21 February, 2019 visitors will able to listen to the sounds of various exhibition items from our collection thanks to the web-app Sound of Design. Using mobile devices or their home computers they will be able to delve into the world of design noises. Sounds range from historical telephones via the engine noises of iconic cars through to the clacking of a keyboard. We are adding sounds to our collection so as to integrate this acoustic dimension of our exhibition items into our presentation – above all with a view to the planned display area. By publishing this archive in our Web-app it will form part of the multimedia experience visitors can enjoy while also infusing life into objects that might otherwise seem remote museum pieces. By way of introducing Sound of Design we are launching a topical focus on the era of the German economic miracle (1950s/1960s), in which new electrical devices and with them diverse sounds entered people’s everyday lives.
he first major exhibition on Tudor and Jacobean portrait miniatures in the UK for over 35 years, Elizabethan Treasures: Miniatures by Hilliard and Oliver will bring together key works from the National Portrait Gallery and major loans from public and private collections to showcase the careers of the most skilled artists of the period, Nicholas Hilliard (1547? – 1619) and Isaac Oliver (c.1565 – 1617). In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, miniature painting was regarded as an art form at which the English excelled above all others, and Hilliard and Oliver gained international fame and admiration. The exhibition will explore what these exquisite images reveal about identity, society and visual culture in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. Highlights include Hilliard and Oliver’s portraits of Elizabeth I, as well as images of James I, his wife Anne of Denmark and his three children Henry, Elizabeth and Charles (later Charles I), and miniatures of some of the most famous figures of the day, such as Sir Walter Ralegh and Sir Francis Drake.
Pre Grétu Máriu Srnovú, poslucháčku katedry Maľby na Vysokej škole výtvarných umení a Filipa Bieleka, nedávneho absolventa katedry Socha, objekt, inštalácia (2010-2016) nie je verejný priestor len anonymným miestom, alebo módnym pojmom, hodiacim sa komukoľvek a kdekoľvek. Vnímajú a pracujú s ním ako s témou, ktorá v ich tvorbe vystupuje v niekoľkých polohách – buď ako spomienka, ako informácia a najčastejšie ako kritika.
