Kvadrat and Wes Andersen collaborate at Kunsthistorisches Museum
Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and other Treasures at Kunsthistorisches Museum 2018
Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf November 6 2018 – April 28 2019
In 2012, the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna initiated a new series of exhibitions for which remarkable creative individuals are invited to present their own personal selections of objects drawn from the museum’s historical collections. The museum’s collections number more than four million objects, and span a period of five thousand years.
For this edition, American filmmaker Wes Anderson and writer and illustrator Juman Malouf have been selected by Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna to curate the exhibition. Titled Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and other Treasures, this special exhibition marks the third instalment of this series and opened on 6th November 2018.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna and the Fondazione Prada and will be presented at the Fondazione Prada, Milan, from October 2019. Jasper Sharp (Kunsthistorisches Museum) and Mario Mainetti (Fondazione Prada) have assisted with the curation. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with text contributions from Sabine Haag, Jasper Sharp and Wes Anderson.
Kvadrat has supported the exhibition with 500 meter of Divina 3 textile in a selection of colours which upholster the walls in the different areas of the exhibition space.
