Austria’s international art fair
Marx Halle, Vienna
“The rise of contemporary Vienna is clearly visible in the 4th edition of viennacontemporary. Young Viennese galleries that have been founded in the last years can be seen next to established Austrian galleries. Eastern Europe is well represented including galleries from Ukraine and Serbia. The focus is also
visible in two exciting projects: the presentation of contemporary art from a young European country, Armenia, and the program Invisible Museum, which embodies the idea of a Roma Museum. Increasingly, galleries from Western Europe find their way to Vienna. The curators of the special shows have selected exciting, attractive artistic positions that represent rising artists as well as trend-setting representatives of an older generation. Thanks to our extensive services we can welcome even more international art collectors in Vienna this year. Together with the Talks program, in which art collectors, curators, and art critics discuss current issues in the art scene, and the communication program for all art lovers, viennacontemporary has not only become a highlight for Vienna, but also an internationally acclaimed art fair”, summarizes Christina Steinbrecher-Pfandt, Artistic Director viennacontemporary, this year's highlights of Austria's largest international art fair.
