Egon Schiele – The Jubilee Show Reloaded
Leopold Museum, Austria | 28.09.2018 – 10.03.2019

The year 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Egon Schiele. The Leopold Museum, which is home to the world’s most important collection of works by this eminent representative of Austrian Expressionism, is dedicating an exhibition to the artist that transcends all media borders, with paintings, watercolors, drawings, sketches, letters and photographs all affording extraordinary and comprehensive insights into his artistic oeuvre.

Even a century after his death, Egon Schiele’s oeuvre has lost none of its currentness and virulence. Placed as “injections” into the jubilee show, works by Louise Bourgeois, Tadashi Kawamata, Jürgen Klauke, Sarah Lucas, Chloe Piene, Rudolf Polanszky, Maximilian Prüfer, Elisabeth von Samsonow and Fiona Tan illustrate the various connecting points to contemporary art offered by Schiele’s central themes and motifs, be it in the context of his radical self-reflections and the questioning of his own body, the depictions of women and his ambivalent mother image, his spirituality or the expressive landscapes, cityscapes and portraits.

The curated dialogues between the Leopold Museum’s central artist and select works by contemporary artists are based on specific references or personal associations, refer to individual works by Schiele or rest on corresponding interests, reinforcing and contouring one another. What these nine staged artistic dialogues have in common is that they focus on similarities in terms of content rather than on formal aesthetic parallels, affording a fresh perspective on one of the most fascinating artists of the 20th century.
