Marx Halle

For the third consecutive year, viennacontemporary took place at Marx Halle, centrally located in the Neu Marx area in Vienna’s 3rd district. Built in the end of the 19th century by famous architect Rudolf Frey, Marx Halle was the first building in Vienna to have a wrought iron structure. Once a popular local cattle market, the newly renovated industrial style building nowadays serves as a spectacular venue for large-scale events, concerts, and fairs.

The hall, with its impressive steel structure measuring 175 meters in length and covering an area of 20.000 square meters, provides extensive exhibition space including booths, special projects, a VIP lounge, a restaurant, and bars for refreshments. Its light architecture and industrial flair create a unique atmosphere for the presentation of contemporary art, transforming the historical halls into a captivating and focused art discovery experience for its visitors and exhibitors.
