Several years ago, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria began inviting artists to sift through the museum’s more than 4 million objects and create exhibitions filtered through the artist’s own unique point of view.
Recently, the museum asked Wes Anderson, the Oscar-nominated director of “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “The Royal Tenenbaums”, and his partner, acclaimed designer, writer, and illustrator, Juman Malouf, to take on the same gargantuan task.
They ended up choosing 423 objects for the show. 350 had never before been publicly shown. We sat down for a transatlantic chat with Kunsthistorisches Museum curator, Jasper Sharp to talk about the show, how it came together, and much more.
