A little bit of everything.

Since news dropped that Wes Anderson was curating his first exhibition in Vienna, we’ve been eagerly awaiting hints at what to expect.

Now, not only do we know the curation’s title – The Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures – we’ve also been teased details of what it will include.

Anderson and his wife, author and costumer Juman Malouf, were set the task of sifting through the Kunsthistorisches’ inventory and picking their favourite pieces.

The result is a collection of paintings, mummies, costumes and artefacts that the museum has lovingly described as ‘an embarrassment of riches’.

The exhibition will run at the Kunsthistorisches Museum from September 11 to January 20, after which it’ll move on to the Fondazione Prada in Milan.

Check out the Kunsthistorisches’ in-house curator, Jasper Sharp, talking about the exhibit below.
