Culture capital in fall 2018

The Vienna Art Week from November 19 to 25, 2018 also serves up a full art program under the slogan "Promising Paradise": Visitors can look forward to exhibitions, panel discussions, lectures, talks with artists, special guided tours, installations, interventions and performances. Around 200 events organized by 70 program planners will take place in just one week. The double meaning of the term Promising Paradise is the concept behind the title of the Vienna Art Week program: Is it about a highly promising paradise or about a paradise that is being promised? About a "Paradise found" or a "Paradise lost"?

Further program highlights include the hugely successful Alternative Space Open House and the Open Studio Day, on which around 100 artists open their studios to the public. Among the most exciting guests of Vienna Art Week are the renowned New York performance specialist RoseLee Goldberg (USA), the artist Joep van Lieshout (NL), the artist Kaucyila Brook (USA) and the composer and actor Christopher Chaplin (CH), who will appear in the performative interview marathon.

The art trade under the banner of Vienna Modernism

Art&Antique is the fair for art, antiques and design, and will be held at the Imperial Palace in Vienna from 10 to 18 November 2018. Numerous national and international galleries offer Orientalia, antiques, glass, furniture, handicrafts, sculptures as well as modern and contemporary art.

One focal point this year is Vienna Modernism. Specialists with an interest in this period, such as Galerie bei der Albertina Zetter, Galerie Susanne Bauer, Antiquitäten Kunsthandel Freller, Kunsthandel Giese & Schweiger, Kunsthandel Kolhammer, Galerie Kovacek, Galerie Kovacek & Zetter and Schütz Fine Art, as well as Galerie 422 Margund Lössl and Christoph Bacher Archäologie Ancient Art, present selected objects.

In 2018 – in the year of Vienna Modernism – a week of Classical Modernism initiated by one of eight Viennese art dealers will take place for the first time. Under the title "Modern Masters – Viennese Week of Modernism", works by representatives of international Modernism, Austrian Expressionism and the Wiener Werkstätte will be shown at the respective gallery locations: Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele and many more. Paintings, drawings and photographs will be on display alongside furniture and handicrafts.
