Wes Anderson makes art world debut by curating new museum exhibition


Wes Anderson is launching a new art exhibit at Austria’s Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna.

The show, which will take place in November, is called “The Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures from the Kunsthistorisches Museum” and it will display curated work culled from the museum’s extensive back catalogue.

The occasion also marks a special collaboration for Anderson who will co-curate the exhibition with his partner, Juman Malouf.

While very little details of the specifics have been released, the museum did reveal that “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.”

The premiere date is marked for November 6 and the gallery released a video teaser with the museum’s curator of modern and contemporary art, Jasper Shapr who details some of the objects available.
