Who is coming? In 2018, viennacontemporary again offers an extensive program with special exhibitions of young and established artists in the special programs ZONE1 and Explorations, and a special show Focus: Armenia that offers a glimpse of the Armenian realities in the rethinking of six contemporary artists.

- ZONE1 presents artists under the age of 40 who are born, educated or living and working in Austria. Curated by Victoria Dejaco, the 2018 edition showcases artists with the ability to look closer at the stories of everyday life, political situations, materials and the “conditio humana” (human condition).
- The new Explorations section presents curated booth presentations by featured galleries. It unites a wide spectrum of artistic practices concentrating on both excellent quality and advanced approaches.
- Armenia section – The artists exhibited include: Ayreen Anastas & Rene Gabri, Mher Azatyan, Arman Grigoryan, Piruza Khalapyan, Rebecca Topakian, Mika Vatinyan.
