Tracey Emin / Egon Schiele: Where I Want to Go
VIENNA  •  Leopold Museum  •  24 April - 14 September 2015
 
Featuring more than 80 works by British artist Tracey Emin (born in 1963), this show attempts to present a dialogue between Emin and her personal selection of drawings by Egon Schiele. The Leopold Museum's curators hope that this exploration of the Austrian Expressionist’s oeuvre allows Tracey Emin to venture into unchartered territory with her art and to draw interesting parallels.

Europe in Vienna: The Congress of Vienna 1814/15
VIENNA  •  Lower Belvedere  •  20 February - 21 June 2015
 
 
Two hundrerd years ago Emperor Francis I of Austria hosted the Congress of Vienna. All of the major European powers sent their delegates in order to confer about how to reorganise the continent, which had lost its stability during the Napoleonic Wars. Austria was represented by the Prince of Metternich, who also functioned as the president of the Congress. The declared goal was to achieve peace in Europe through a balance of powers and thus secure order on a long-term basis. The diplomatic negotiations were accompanied by a number of social events and entertainments, the enormous splendour of which has been captured in numerous written and pictorial documents. In those days, Vienna was flourishing as a centre of cultural life, with many artists coming to the imperial city and inspiring all genres of domestic art production. This exhibition highlights both the political and social aspects of the Congress of Vienna.

From the Beauty of Nature: Archduke Johann
VIENNA  •  Albertina  •  27 February - 31 May 2015
 
 
In this exhibition, the Albertina is showing 150 works that represent what one could unreservedly call the pinnacle of Austrian 19th century watercolour painting. The patron was Archduke Johann (1782-1859), who commissioned several artists - including Jakob Gauermann, Matthäus Loder and Thomas Ender - to serve as “personal painters to the Duke” (“Kammermaler”). Their duty was to produce depictions of the Alpine regions, first and foremost the Duchy of Styria. This resulted in a collection of the finest quality that began in 1802 and is composed of nearly 1,500 works. It predominantly includes vedutas (panoramas), along with portrayals of traditional folk costume and views of early industrial facilities.
