Hollywood comes to Vienna: Wes Anderson's pick of the Kunsthistorisches Museum

Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf in the Kunsthistorisches Museum KHM-Museumsverband

The film director Wes Anderson is mixing it up at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna later this year. The man behind movies including The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Royal Tenenbaums is organising, with his partner, Juman Malouf, an exhibition drawn from the museum’s collection (11 September-20 January 2019). Their selection will include objects from the institution’s picture gallery and from its collections of Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities, arms and armour, and historical musical instruments. The show is due to travel to the Fondazione Prada in Venice, coinciding with next year’s Biennale (11 May-24 November 2019).

CLARIFICATION (5 FEBRUARY): A spokeswoman for the Prada Foundation says that the show in Venice is yet to be confirmed.
