The gallery festival with international curators in Vienna



With the curated by gallery festival initiated in 2009, the Vienna Business Agency supports the systematic collaboration of Viennese galleries and international curators with the aim of emphasising the importance of Vienna as a base for galleries and business. From 2009 to 2017, the Business Agency coordinated and financed the festival that is being staged independently by a consortium of participating galleries as from 2018.

This year’s instalment of curated by explores under the title viennaline the specific aspects of the Vienna system. In the festival’s tenth year, the city itself is at the centre of attention. The optimism of enlightenment, the political situation, the modes of perception, the city of contrasts, life between the baroque and present times, the culturally entrenched bridge between the East and West, local elements in the global context, and the imaginary itself are among the distinctive components of this city.
