“Vienna’s art scene has finally grown beyond art-historical treasures and I am very happy that viennacontemporary is among this new generation bursting with fresh energy. I’m also grateful for the support from more prominent players, who have been generously sharing their longstanding experience with us. The fair has established an individual character and, as in previous years, we want to show the best of Austria and CEE. viennacontemporary stands out in the art market for the highest concentration of Eastern European galleries worldwide and a continuously growing international scope, with special attention to emerging art markets,” says Christina Steinbrecher-Pfandt, Artistic Director of viennacontemporary.
From 27 to 30 September 2018, viennacontemporary will once again gather more than 100 galleries and institutions from 26 countries under the roof of iconic Marx Halle. The only art fair to unite the East and the West in carefully curated exhibitions, viennacontemporary stands out in the crowded art calendar as a place for exciting discoveries. Ranging from Austria’s most significant galleries to international top players and up-and-coming galleries, the fair’s exhibitors represent some of the world’s most exciting artists, from the emerging to the iconic. A wide array of special presentations, like ZONE1 and Explorations, as well as sophisticated accompanying events, such as the Talks program and special guided tours, complete the rich offer and make art accessible to every visitor.
“We are happy to support viennacontemporary 2018 in the framework of our cultural engagement in the countries of Eastern and Southeastern Europe. As the leading banking group in the CEE region, it is our responsibility to support civil society and cultural development in the region. viennacontemporary with its outreach into unknown traditions and surprising practices of contemporary art in CEE is a fitting platform for these aspirations. A vivid and free art community is indispensable for modern democracies,” comments Boris Marte, Head of Erste Innovation HUB.
“We are thrilled to announce that we were able to secure Marx Halle as a location for viennacontemporary and to fix the dates of the fair for the upcoming 10 years. This shows our unwavering commitment and allows us to focus on the quality and high level of service for our clients,” says Renger van den Heuvel, Managing Director of viennacontemporary.
