Temporary Exhibition Gallery 12

Kirkland Museum travels to turn-of-the-century Austria to showcase the influence of Josef Hoffmann (1870–1956) in the Vienna Secessionist movement and subsequent Wiener Werkstätte. The exhibition will feature 13 issues of Ver Sacrum, the official magazine of the Secession, published 1898–1903.

Special exhibitions are included with admission and do not require a separate ticket, but pre-reserved timed tickets are required to visit Kirkland Museum.

The exhibition will be supplemented with virtual tours and supporting content will be added to this page. A lecture series is planned to accompany the last four exhibitions. Sponsorship opportunities are available; please email [email protected] to request more information. 

Please note: Due to the uncertainties of COVID-19, exhibition and programming details are subject to change.
