From 7 – 10 September 2023, viennacontemporary invited numerous art enthusiasts from Austria and all over the world to explore established galleries, exciting newcomers, and curated special exhibitions at the stunning Kursalon Vienna.

Until 17 September, you can still browse and purchase the works of the fair online on Artsy.

Austria’s leading international art fair stood out as a unique platform that bridged the contemporary art scenes of Western and Eastern Europe, offering a space for surprising perspectives and artistic discoveries. The annual highlight, ZONE1, was a dedicated platform for emerging young Austrian talent, while the special program VCT STATEMENT: Political Homelessness and Contemporary Citizenship delved into the concept of belonging in today’s Europe – the associated exhibition Not Either Or, But And can be seen in das weisse haus until 21 October. With VCT ACTIVATION, an ongoing collaboration with Meta and the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts (MAK) has been established, and in the framework of VCT SCULPTURE, an artwork by Carola Dertnig / CRONE can be seen all year on the garden premises of Kursalon.

Featuring a remarkable selection of contemporary art, a rich supporting program, engaging talks, and expert-guided tours, viennacontemporary once again positioned Vienna at the heart of the international art scene. We want to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who visited, exhibited, and supported this year’s edition.

While viennacontemporary 2023 may have ended, the team is already eagerly preparing for the next chapter. Please SAVE THE DATE for viennacontemporary 2024, which will take place from 12 -15 September at Messe Wien.

We can’t wait to welcome you back for another exciting week celebrating the visual arts and look forward to seeing you in 2024!
