ZONE1, the format for solo presentations of young Austrian art, once again promises a program full of surprises. Realized with the kind support of the Austrian Federal Chancellery, these are the up-and-coming Austrian artists presented at viennacontemporary.
viennacontemporary brings together an unparalleled selection of galleries – a third of them from Austria. From September 22-25 at Marx Halle, exhibitors from Vienna and beyond will represent the Austrian art scene.
