This exhibition brings the theoretical aspect of the work of the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), especially his search for the beauty ideal – one of the main aspects of his art – and the impact of his style and aesthetic ideas behind the development of graphic design in contemporary cultural manifestations. The exhibition sets Mucha’s work in dialogue with these expressions that today are influenced by the ‘Mucha style’:
The show not only traces Mucha’s work as an artist, but also as the ultimate exponent of ArtNouveau.
The exhibition is curated by Tomoko Sato and Ania Rodriguez and presents around 100 works, including posters, drawings, paintings, objects, books and photographs. The exhibition comprises 6 thematic sections, projections of the work “The Slavic epic” and interactive book displays.
