Wes Anderson & Juman Malouf: Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures

In stock (1000 items available)
In 2016, filmmaker Wes Anderson and his wife, the costume designer and novelist Juman Malouf, were invited to curate an exhibition of objects from the collections of Vienna's Kunsthistoriches Museum. With essays by Anderson and Malouf and extensive documentation of the installation, this catalogue records the surprising decisions made according to the pair's unorthodox criteria, with works grouped by colour or size in playful disregard for received curatorial methods. As Anderson writes, the exercise may advance "methods of art history through the scientific process of trial-and-error (in this case, error)," offering a fresh means of exhibiting pieces that range across 5,000 years.
