Stylish, provocative, rebellious– Vienna 1900. A century ago, a group of radical young artists, architects, writers, musicians, designers and thinkers overturned all the rules and created a brave new world. Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Josef Hoffmann and Adolf Loos were central to this artistic revolution which transformed Vienna into a dynamic modern metropolis.
This dazzling exhibition will showcase an exquisite selection of furniture, decorative arts, jewellery, paintings and textiles by Vienna’s most famous designers, architects and artists in the period 1890 to 1928.
See paintings by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, a collection of decorative arts including jewellery by Josef Hoffmann, architectural drawings by Otto Wagner; designs of the Wiener Werkstätte, and works by Richard Gerstl, Koloman Moser, Oskar Kokoschka and others.
Bring a friend, hear an introductory lecture and stay for Art After Dark drinks.
Gold/Institutional Members: $25
