This year VIENNAFAIR had two wonderful curated projects: VIENNA Duet (Georgia and Poland) and “DIYALOG”: New Energies. In this post we would like to introduce you to dedicated curators and thank our partners – the Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia, the Polish Institute in Vienna, and OMV – for their kind support.
VIENNAFAIR The New Contemporary is grateful to the Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia and the Embassy of Georgia in Vienna for their generous support of the special project VIENNA Duet: Georgia “Our Caucasus i. e. Chveni Kavkasioni” curated by Irena Popiashvili and the artistic directors of VIENNAFAIR Christina Steinbrecher–Pfandt and Vita Zaman.
Following last year’s VIENNAFAIR The New Contemporary kick-off with a curated section of the VIENNA Quintet program in which Georgia played an important role and many artists came to Vienna, we promised to visit Tibilisi. By the end of May everything was set up for the visit!
