Vienna’s leading contemporary art galleries will be presenting specially curated exhibitions on the topic “Meine Herkunft habe ich mir selbst ausgedacht” [My Origins? I made them up]. The festival, coordinated and supported by the Vienna Business Agency and their creative centre departure, is on display from September 9 to October 15.
With its presentation format REFLECTIONS, viennacontemporary underlines the curatorial aspect of gallery work and offers participating galleries a particular presentation platform for exhibitions that have been specifically conceived for the fair.
We are excited to announce artists represented at viennacontemporary 2015!
