Modern Worlds: Austrian and German Art 1890-1940 at Neue Galerie, through March 13, 2022
“On November 11, 2021, Neue Galerie New York opened ‘Modern Worlds: Austrian and German Art, 1890-1940,’ an exhibition of major works of Austrian and German fine art and design from the permanent collection. The presentation, organized in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the founding of Neue Galerie New York, fills the entirety of its landmark Museum Mile building. The opening of this exhibition offers visitors access to all of the galleries for the first time since March 2020, when the Neue Galerie, along with museums in New York and around the world, shuttered in response to the pandemic.
On view through March 13, 2022, ‘Modern Worlds: Austrian and German Art, 1890-1940’ underscores the Neue Galerie’s unique mission to bring a sense of perspective back to Germanic culture of this period, and to make the best of this work available to American and other audiences for both scholarly and aesthetic inquiry. Since the museum opened in November 2001, it has presented a range of exhibitions, each exploring a distinct aspect of the innovative, modern spirit discovered and pursued by artists and designers in Austria and Germany at the turn of the twentieth century. This exhibition acknowledges the continued growth and evolution of the museum. Major acquisitions have augmented the Neue Galerie’s holdings, and one of the highlights of the presentation is Carl Moll’s 1905 White Interior, displayed at the Neue Galerie for the first time.” — Neue Galerie
