New directors and curators present annual preview for 2016
During their inaugural press conference held on Thursday 3rdDecember 2015, the new Directors of the Leopold Museum – Hans-Peter Wipplinger (Museological Director) and Gabriele Langer (Managing Director) – presented ongoing and future exhibition projects together with the museum’s curators and guest curators. The exhibitions scheduled at the Leopold Museum for 2016 range from 19th century art and Classical Modernism all the way to contemporary art. The majority of projects involve the collection of the Leopold Museum and aim, according to Hans-Peter Wipplinger, at “continually placing the exhibits of the Leopold Collection into new contexts from a contemporary perspective by presenting parts of the collection alongside loans in temporary exhibitions”. These exhibitions will include works by international as well as Austrian artists.
