Late at Tate Liverpool: Attention to Detail
Thursday 31 July 2008, 18.00–21.00
Dissect and critique Klimt’s Wiener Werkstätte years in an evening of analysis and reflection while enjoying a complimentary glass of Perrier-Jouët champagne.
Take part in a salon led by musicologists Peter Franklin and Gavin Plumley on the visual manifestation of music in Klimt’s work with particular reference to the Beethoven Frieze. See a colourful reenaction of the complex life of one of the major patrons of the Weiner Werstätte in a short play about Karl Wittgenstein entitled Coffee with the Wittgensteins, featuring a discussion session with Margaret Stonborough, great granddaughter of Wittgenstein.
Watch the fascinating documentary ‘Adele’s Wish’ about the repatriation of Klimt’s work, followed by a question and answer session with the director Terrence Turner, and hear special performances of the music of Schreker, Schonberg, Zemlinsky and Strauss by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra throughout the evening in the foyer.
