Bundeskunsthalle Weather Report exhibition
The Bundeskunsthalle museum in Bonn, Germany has asked Michel Heurtault to participate in their WEATHER REPORT exhibition by showcasing emblematic pieces of his historic umbrella and parasol collection.
The different chapters of the exhibition combine top-quality artistic, culture-historical, and scientific exhibits from all over the world – altogether 400 objects from over 100 lenders. Amongst many others the show includes art works by John Constable, William Turner, Gustave Courbet, Otto Modersohn Joaquin Sorolla, Giovanni Segantini, Germaine Richier, Gerhard Richter, Olafur Eliasson, Leiko Ikemura and Pieter Hugo. Scientific treasures such as the first waterproof rubber shoes by Macintosh, and an original thermometer by Daniel Fahrenheit are also presented in this exhibition. It is our aim to create compelling and affective spheres, which also provide explanations and food for thought. – BUNDESKUNSTHALLE
