Andy Warhol’s Jewish Geniuses

 November 20th 2014 to May 24th 2015

 

An exhibition of the Jewish Museum Vienna in cooperation with the Jewish Museum of Australia. Andy Warhol’s Jewish Geniuses are setting foot in Australia for the very first time. Warhol’s famous portrait series of ten iconic 20th century Jewish figures will exhibit in all their screen printed brilliance in the Loti Smorgon Gallery at the Jewish Museum of Australia.

 

The series includes a dynamic mix of 20th century thinkers, scientists and artists including Sarah Bernhardt (actress), Louis Brandeis (judge), Martin Buber (philosopher), Albert Einstein  (physicist), Sigmund Freud (neurologist and founding father of psychoanalysis), George Gershwin (composer), Franz Kafka (writer), Golda Meir (4th Prime Minister of Israel), Gertrude Stein (writer) and The Marx Brothers (actors). The exhibition explores Warhol’s creation of the ‘celebrity’ image and his selection process behind his Jewish geniuses. It questions how Warhol depicted the public face of famous personalities, and how we receive the images of these famous Jewish figures today.

 

 

Warhol Now

 November 20th 2014 to May 24th 2015

 

A contemporary art response, Warhol Now, will accompany Andy Warhol’s Jewish Geniuses in the Museum’s Dinah and Henry Krongold Family Gallery.

The Sacred and the Profane – Challenges and Possibilities in Renaissance Art

December 6th 2014 to March 15th 2015

 

In the fifteenth century, the art, architecture, literature and science of ancient Greece and Rome were rediscovered, and inspired the complex and extraordinary cultural phenomenon that was Renaissance art. As ancient sculptures were unearthed in Italy, artists copied them in marble, in paint and on paper. At the same time, they revolutionised figure drawing by studying the anatomy and movement of bodies, and rendering them with unprecedented accuracy. The NGV’s Old Master paintings, drawings and prints in this exhibition show the diversity of approaches to the figure in art, including works by Albrecht Dürer, Annibale Carracci and Peter Paul Rubens.

The reflection model series focuses on seven of Japan’s most sacred buildings that all have an intimate visual relationship with the reflections they cast in the water that surrounds them.

 

Alex Prager

November 14th 2014 to April 19th 2015

 

Alex Prager is an American photographer and film maker. In her elaborately conceived staged photographs, Prager openly references the aesthetics of mid-twentieth century American cinema and photography. Each of her lush colour images resembles a film still – entirely constructed and packed with emotion and human melodrama. In her film work she extends on her photographic practice, moving from the directorial mode in photography to directing an elaborately constructed film. Both aspects of her practice pair the banal and fantastic, the everyday and the theatrical, real life and cinematic representation in lush, richly coloured tableaux.
