Austria’s international art fair

In order to guarantee the safety and health of the visitors of viennacontemporary in view of the current COVID -19 situation, the management of viennacontemporary has taken numerous measures in the run-up to the fair to ensure a safe realization of viennacontemporary 2020. Further information.


We have reason to rejoice: viennacontemporary will take place from 24-27 September 2020 at Marx Halle Vienna. 

We would like to thank the 65 participating galleries from 16 countries for their trust and commitment to our common goal in these difficult times. The galleries will this year again present strong positions from their programs to our visitors. 

This year, too, there will be special shows at the fair: The ZONE1 exhibition format curated by Cathrin Mayer exclusively presents artists under 40 who live, work, or study in Vienna. In the pointed work presentation Explorations, Elisa R. Linn & Lennart Wolff bring together artistic positions that were created between 1945 and 1980. An exciting selection of Video works was put together by Jen Kratochvil and will be shown at the fair. 

The Talks program Central and Eastern European ART: Beyond Social Utopia was put together by Jelena Petrović, the ArtTech Talks series by curator Francesca Gavin.

We are proud to announce the digital extension of the fair: vc_on. The platform aims to put a spotlight on Austrian, Central, Southeastern, and Eastern European art, addressing new audiences and young collectors, connecting galleries with art lovers, and fostering sustainable relationships. In addition, the new online magazine on central east offers exciting news and features on the art, culture, and lifestyle scenes of Vienna and the up-and-coming Central, Southeast, and Eastern European centers.

The fair is implementing all health safety regulations required by the Federal Government. We ask you to wear mouth and nose protection in the exhibition area at all times and to keep a safe distance.
