Wes Anderson Join Hands For Museum Exhibit in Vienna, Wes Anderson, acclaimed American film director, film producer, actor and screenwriter is set to co-curate a museum exhibit in Vienna, Austria, in the coming fall. We don’t know about you, but we’re certainly hyped about this – as are many art enthusiasts and fans of Anderson.
The project that Anderson, director of Moonrise Kingdom, is working on is in collaboration with his longtime design partner and good friend, Juman Malouf. The results of their work will be exhibited at Vienna’s own Kunsthistorisches Museum from November 6, 2018 to April 28, 2019. Anderson is well known for his attention to detail where art and wardrobe is concerned, so it’s no surprise that the exhibit is one that is highly anticipated.
It was pretty much confirmed by the museum’s curator, Jasper Sharp, that the exhibit will be one that’s particularly dazzling. Sharp stated in an interview that,
“This autumn, we are presenting a very special exhibition which will be quite unlike anything we’ve ever done before,” and then he proceeded to outline the sorts of artwork that will be showcased by Malouf and Anderson.
The two partners will be given access to a plethora of the museum’s most valuable pieces – Antiques from the Greek and Roman eras, Egyptian Mummies, the Imperial Treasury, carriages and sleighs, the crown jewels, and a collection of other various riches from all around. While the museum curator was quite open in sharing the objects that Anderson and Malouf have at their disposal, they’ve remained tight-lipped about the details of the exhibition itself.
Fortunately, we can take a fairly good guess as to what sort of color palette to expect from Anderson.
In the past, the director of The Grand Budapest Hotel has been known to stick to muted pastels and earthy tones, and thus it would be a rather large surprise if the exhibit strayed from this usual choice.
Anderson has opened up in interviews regarding his films before, discussing how all his sets are carefully constructed and designed, with precise details and sharp edges. These are features we can hope to see in the coming fall exhibit.
Here is what the curator, Jasper Sharp has to say about the museum:
