    Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf invited to create an exhibition at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.

    The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna promises you an exhibition “quite unlike anything [they’ve] ever done before”. They have invited filmmaker Wes Anderson and novelist, Juman Malouf to sort through all the objects in their archives, from Egyptian mummies to crown jewels, to create an art show, or rather “an embarrassment of riches”. Although the show is still wrapped in mystery, we are sure that with Anderson’s pronounced aesthetic and Juman’s background in costume design, the two will use both art and artefact to weave a story to behold. This type of collaboration between artist and museum is still relatively new for the Kunsthistorisches Museum, only happening twice before with Ed Ruscha in 2012 and Edmund de Waal in 2016. While the task is an honour, it is also daunting. The artists have access to over 4 million objects, on display and in the museum’s storage, to pick their favourites and put them on display. The show, The Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures from the Kunsthistorisches Museum, hints that it will be as busy as its title is long, and with the access to so much fine art granted to the couple, from Master painters to Greek and Roman antiquities, we can understand the excitement. The show will open on November 6th till April 28th of next year.
