Description

We❤️ (we love) 24th November 2023 until 25th August 2024 The exhibition features a selection of high-caliber artworks from the Heidi Horten Collection, curated in three thematic categories that represent the collection's principal content areas: Expressionism, especially in its German variant with artwork by Franz Marc and Emil Nolde. Art from the 1960s and 1970s, with a specific emphasis on U.S., Italian, and German positions by Andy Warhol, Yves Klein and René Magritte. And painting and sculpture in the field of tension between figuration and abstraction with works from Francis Bacon, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Damien Hirst. Visitors of the museum will play a significant role in the exhibition concept. They will have the opportunity to select around twenty artworks from the collection, either on-site or through social media, which will then be permanently displayed in a special area of the museum. The Heidi Horten Collection is home to a masterpiece by Gustav Klimt entitled Church in Unterach on Lake Attersee, created between 1915 and 1916. The artwork will be featured in one of the “Kabinett” rooms alongside graphic works by artists of the same period. These works are juxtaposed in dialogue with contemporary works from the Heidi Horten Collection. The unifying element is the square – Klimt's trademark, as it were – which gained exceptional popularity in 'Vienna around 1900' and has since been adopted by an astonishing number of contemporary artists. We❤️ is inherently linked to the WOW! exhibition that took place in 2018. Following its successful presentation at the Leopold Museum in Vienna, Heidi Goëss-Horten decided to build a museum to permanently house the collection, with the goal of making it accessible to a broader audience and creating an art experience for anyone to enjoy. By directly involving visitors in selecting artworks, the vision of the museum's founder takes on a fresh perspective. An exhibition guide for the Heidi Horten Collection will be released to coincide with the show. The Heidi Horten Collection is a private fine art-museum and located in the heart of Vienna, next to the State Opera and the Burggarten. With great passion and sensitivity, Heidi Goëss-Horten (1944-2022) built an art collection of international stature. Over decades she has amassed an impressive selection of several hundred paintings, sculptures and graphic works. Her collection provides an in-depth overview how art has developed in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
