Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf: The Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures from the Kunsthistorisches Museum

(Tuesday) (Sunday)

Continuing the exhibition series that began with Ed Ruscha (2012) and Edmund de Waal (2016), the Kunsthistorisches Museum has invited the acclaimed American filmmaker Wes Anderson and his partner Juman Malouf, a celebrated author and costume designer, to curate a very special exhibition at the museum. The invitation was a simple but daunting one: to comb through more than four million objects, both on public display and tucked away in the museum’s labyrinthine storage rooms, and to select their favourites. The exhibition will include objects from all fourteen collections of the museum: Old Master Paintings, Egyptian Antiquities, Greek and Roman Antiquities, the Kunstkammer, the Imperial Treasury, the Coin Cabinet, the Imperial Armoury, the Imperial Carriage Museum, the Collection of Historical Musical Instruments, the Weltmuseum, the Theater Museum, the Ephesos Museum, the Library and Schloss Ambras in Innsbruck. Objects from the Museum of Natural History, Vienna, will also be included. It is the first exhibition that Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf have curated, and will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue.
