Wes Anderson is Co-Curating an Art Show in Vienna

Words Tori West

The famed director is partnering with designer and novelist Juman Malouf

Wes Anderson has a busy year ahead of him. As well as releasing his highly anticipated stop-motion Isle of Dogs this March, his latest venture is to co-curate an upcoming art exhibition.

The project, which is currently untitled, is in collaboration with designer and novelist Juman Malouf – who was recently cited by Vogue as a potential muse for Gucci – will be held at the Kunsthistorisches Museum. The Austrian museum, which is often referred to the “Museum of Fine Arts” houses an extensive collection of musical instruments, armour, weapons and Greco-Roman antiques.

Although for some, Anderson’s latest move may come as no surprise. Celebrated for his surreal, aesthetically focused feature films, it’s not the first time the director has been praised in the art world. A visual art show involving over 400 artists and a book release titled Bad Dads, creatively interpreted Anderson’s unique vision of cinema. Don’t forget SubReddit, that catalogues the most Anderson-esque locations.
