Continuing the exhibition series that began with Ed Ruscha in 2012, the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna has invited the acclaimed American film director Wes Anderson and his wife Juman Malouf to curate an exhibition drawn from the rich collection of the museum.


The exhibition will include objects from the Picture Gallery, the collections of Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities, the Kunstkammer, the collections of historical musical instruments, arms and armour, and coins and medals, the carriages and sleighs at Wagenburg, the Weltmuseum, the Theatre Museum, and Schloss Ambras in Innsbruck.


The exhibition will be presented in Vienna during the autumn of 2018, opening in September. It will then travel to Venice where it will be presented at the Fondazione Prada, to coincide with both the Biennale of Art and the Venice Film Festival.

Anderson’s latest film Isle of Dogs (2018) has its world premiere next week, opening the Berlin Film Festival on 15 February.
