viennacontemporary 2017: the things I look forward to see
Every year, for a week, Vienna becomes the capital of art. And that’s because between 21st and 24th of September, the viennacontemporary 2017 attracts all the fresh and cool names in painting, photography and installation and all the young and dynamic galleries from Europe.
What I am going to see: More than 110 galleries and institutions from 27 countries will present the works of over 500 artists, and a wide range of additional information on the contemporary art scene, at the Viennese Marx Halle from 21 to 24 September. Known as a “fair for explorers”, viennacontemporary features the most intriguing selection of contemporary art the region has to offer. “Bridging the East and West, viennacontemporary continues to foster Vienna’s creative scene, and is proud to promote the city’s rapidly growing role as an international hub for contemporary art. Embark with us on an art journey through the world’s most liveable city!”, said the artistic director Christina Steinbrecher-Pfandt.

The special features will include: solo exhibitions of young and established artists in the special programs ZONE1 and Solo & Sculpture, a comprehensive retrospective of the development of the Hungarian art scene in the special presentation Focus: Hungary, and fascinating insights into the shows of selected Finish, Danish and Swedish galleries in Nordic Highlights. There is also a supporting program with performances, special exhibitions and talks with artists. This year, for the first time, there will be a presentation of high-quality sculptures by international artists.
