Von Samtbrokat und Häutchengold – Ausgewählte Paramente aus dem Danziger Mittelalterschatz

Lübeck (D) > seit 19.01.2019, bis auf weiteres

Rund die Hälfte des berühmten Danziger Paramentenschatzes gehört als Dauerleihgabe der Evangelischen Kirche Hannover seit 1990 zu den Highlights des St. Annen-Museums. Es handelt sich um kostbarste Gewänder für den Gottesdienst. Feinste Stickereien mit purem Gold und byzantinische Seiden zeigen den hohen Wert, der diesen Gewändern ehemals zugemessen wurde. Sie stammen aus der ehemaligen Marienkirche in Danzig und sind vorwiegend im  14. Jahrhundert entstanden. In der Kirche versteckt, überdauerten sie Reformation und Kriege. Erst im 19. Jahrhundert hat man sie zufällig bei Bauarbeiten wiederentdeckt. Das macht sie so besonders wertvoll, wurden sie doch über Jahrhunderte weder benutzt noch verändert. Nach der Maueröffnung wurde ein Teil der textilen Schätze nach Lübeck gebracht, während die andere Hälfte sich weiterhin in Danzig - heute im Nationalmuseum - befindet. Die Danziger Paramente wurden in Lübeck einige Jahre nicht mehr gezeigt. Jetzt werden erstmals wieder ausgewählte Stücke konservatorisch optimiert in die Dauerausstellung des St. Annen-Museums integriert. Dabei wird großer Wert auf das Miteinander von Glasmalerei und Altären in Verbindung mit den symbolisch genutzten Gewändern gelegt. Sie alle dienten dazu, den Gottesdienst als großes Fest für die Christen zu gestalten. Mit dem neu eröffneten Paramentenraum wird das St. Annen-Museum wieder um eine bedeutende Attraktion reicher. Zugleich wird ein Katalog zu diesem Schatz erscheinen.

Art and Innovation: Traditional Arctic Footwear from the Bata Shoe Museum Collection

Toronto (CA) > seit 20.02.2016

At the top of the world, the Arctic spans over fourteen million square kilometers and includes eight countries. The challenging landscapes of this circumpolar expanse seem harsh and inhospitable, yet the region is home to over forty distinct culture groups who have thrived there for centuries, creating brilliantly beautiful and diverse solutions to meet these challenges. Among the most innovative is the footwear and clothing created by Arctic women whose ingenuity is reflected in the remarkable variety of garments made; a variety that reflects both environmental as well as cultural needs.
From innovative technologies deftly used to ensure survival and comfort to intricate, decorative techniques used to culturally ground wearers, the incredible range of circumpolar attire is a stunning testament to the art and technology of dress found in the Arctic.

Taking the Stage

Taking the Stage

Washington, DC (USA) > Dauerausstellung ab 24.09.2016

This exhibition explores the history of African Americans in theater, film, and television in order to celebrate their creative achievements, demonstrate their cultural impact and illuminate their struggles for equal representation on the stage of American entertainment. Visitors will see how African Americans transformed the ways they are represented onstage by challenging racial discrimination and stereotypes and striving to produce more positive, authentic and diverse images of African American identity and experience. Together these stories suggest how African American performing artists also paved the way for broader social change. Stories include Paul Robeson’s role in Othello, Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuf and the Black Stuntmen’s Association in Hollywood.

Nature by Design

Nature by Design

Lowell, MA (USA) > As ATHM undergoes a significant transformation, this exhibit is currently open only to members, educational programs, and private groups.

Nature is the oldest and richest source of design inspiration. From the earliest paintings on cave walls, humans have interpreted the world around them—plants, animals, and natural phenomena—to create, ornament, and embellish objects. In all forms of art, from frescoes to sculpture to architecture, from printing to weaving to industrial design, nature has been a primary resource of ideas.
The objects in Nature by Design share a common characteristic: they are both artful and useful, functional and aesthetically pleasing. This exhibit explores the rise and decline of the great movements of art, from Classicism and Romanticism to Art Deco, and their impact on our culture, society, and economy. ATHM’s collections of textiles, clothing, advertising ephemera, and even machinery reflect our fascination with Nature by Design.
