He captured imaginations and made his artistic mark with big-screen hits like The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel. And, he once designed a Milan cafe that resembled one of his film sets. In the coming months, he'll release his new stop-motion animated movie Isle of Dogs — but that's not all that acclaimed director Wes Anderson is working on.
Known for his visual distinctive style and fondness for symmetry, Anderson will also take his creative vision into the art world, playing museum curator alongside his partner, set designer and illustrator Juman Malouf. The pair have been invited to put together an exhibition for Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum, which you've got to admit looks like it's been plucked from a dreamy Anderson flick itself.
The exhibition is set to kick off this September and run until January 2019, featuring a broad collection of in-house artifacts, as chosen by the creative couple. Pieces like historical musical instruments, suits of armour, foreign antiques, carriages and sleighs will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue — sure to be a swoon-worthy piece of art in its own right.
