Vernissage: 16. November, 19 Uhr
With Aging Pride, the Belvedere has dedicated a comprehensive museum exhibition to the highly topical, socio-political subject of age. In this show, curator Sabine Fellner demonstrates how artists have succeeded in differently perceiving the possibilities and limitations of age while transcending exaltation and pessimism. In the presented works, artists illustrate how age in all of its facets can be thoughtfully integrated into our lives. In addition to numerous works from the Belvedere collection, the exhibition presents high-profile loans from national and international museums.
