Culture capital in fall 2017
From 21 to 24 September 2017, the art fair viennacontemporary presents contemporary art with a focus on Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (this time on Hungary) in the Marx Halle in the 3rd district. Around 100 galleries from 26 countries are represented, and there's 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.
International curators show 21 exhibitions of contemporary art in selected galleries across Vienna: That's the concept of curated by_vienna, which runs from 15 September to 14 October 2017. The slogan this time is "image/reads/text”, and investigates the meaning of language in contemporary art.
By contrast, Parallel Vienna presents divergent positions of young and established contemporary art from 19 to 24 September 2017.
During the Long Night of Museums (10 October) a single ticket acts as a passe-partout for around 100 Viennese museums, galleries and cultural institutions between 6pm and 1am. In addition to exhibitions and art shows, the event also features discussions with artists, readings and live music. The Long Night ticket also acts as a free pass for the special shuttle bus and the Viennese public transportation network.
Finally, the Vienna Art Week from 13 to 19 November 2017 also serves up a full art program under the slogan "Transforming Technology": Exhibitions, panel discussions, presentations, talks with artists, special tours, installations, interventions and performances devote themselves to the effects of automation, digitization and technology upgrades on society and art.
Art&Antique is the fair for art, antiques and design, and will be held at the Imperial Palace in Vienna from 4 to 12 November 2017. Numerous national and international galleries offer Orientalia, antiques, glass, furniture, handicrafts, sculptures as well as modern and contemporary art.
