Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna 1897-1907 at the Neue Galerie

May 23–September 2, 2013
A monographic exhibition devoted to the Austrian artist, designer, and Wiener Werkst├Ątte co-founder Koloman Moser (1868–1918) surveys the sum of Moser's decorative arts career, comprising important interior design commissions, examples of graphic design, furniture, textiles, jewelry, metalwork, glass, and ceramics, many of which are illustrated by rare preparatory drawings and prints.
A pioneer of modern design, Moser worked across diverse types of media both in two and three dimensions. This assemblage of over 200 works focuses on the period from 1897 to 1907 and explores the entirety of his material output, tracing the evolution of his early work as a graphic artist to his work as a furniture designer and interior architect. The show concludes with a focus on Moser’s seminal role as co-founder of the Wiener Werkst├Ątte, a celebrated applied arts collective he formed with Josef Hoffmann and patron Fritz Waerndorfer in May 1903.
