Into the Night: Cabarets and Clubs in Modern Art

Belvedere Museum Vienna Art

“Life is a cabaret, old chum / Come to the cabaret,” sings Sally Bowles, the character played by Liza Minelli in the 1972 film Cabaret. With more than 300 works of art, “Into the Night” documents the clubs, cafés, and cabarets where artists, bohemians, and the demimonde socialized their way into modernism, putting their nightlife on the map. Come to Cabaret Fledermaus in turn-of-the-century Vienna; the Berlin clubs in Weimar Germany; the Harlem jazz scene; and the Mbari clubs in 1960s Nigeria. —J.V.
