See what are the interesting art events in Vienna this week.

  • February 26, Thursday

Artist talk: Adel Abdessemed in conversation with Jakob Steiner/VICE at Galerie Christine König | 18:00  | Schleifmühlgasse 1A, 1040

Exhibition opening: Vienna for Art`s Sake at Winterpalais Vienna  |  19:00  | Himmelpfortgasse 8, 1010
For a period of three months (27.02.2015 – 31.05.2015), contemporary art will pervade the glamorous ambience of Prince Eugene of Savoy’s former residence within the framework of the exhibition Vienna for Art’s Sake!. Having been invited by designer and creator Peter Noever, thirteen prominent contemporary artists will enter into a dialogue with the newly renovated rooms of the Winter Palace. The starting point of this project is the Archive Austria, Austria’s contribution to Luciano Benetton Collection’s Imago Mundi. Different from other archives of Imago Mundi, Peter Noever has expanded the Archive Austria by artists, architects, and designers who live and/or work in Vienna or have left behind a remarkable contribution, regardless of their geographic origins and nationality.
