Contemporary “injections” from Bourgeois to Samsonow
The exhibition EGON SCHIELE. THE JUBILEE SHOW – RELOADED at the Leopold Museum shows that a hundred years after the artist’s death, his oeuvre has lost none of its relevance. On the invitation of the Leopold Museum’s Director Hans-Peter Wipplinger, the exhibition’s curators Verena Gamper and Diethard Leopold chose nine positions of international contemporary art to be placed as selective “injections” into the jubilee show.
The exhibition features works by Louise Bourgeois (FR/US), Tadashi Kawamata (JP/FR), Jürgen Klauke (DE), Sarah Lucas (UK), Chloe Piene (US), Rudolf Polanszky (AT), Maximilian Prüfer (DE), Elisabeth von Samsonow (DE/AT) and Fiona Tan (IDN/NL).
The exhibition EGON SCHIELE. THE JUBILEE SHOW curated by Diethard Leopold and Hans-Peter Wipplinger represents a major contribution to the anniversary year dedicated to “Viennese Modernism”. Originally intended to close on 4th November, the exhibition has received new impetus and will be extended owing to its great popularity. The RELOADED interventions allow for a significant modification of the existing exhibition, expanding it with exciting dialogues between Schiele’s oeuvre and contemporary art.
