Everything in Vienna revolves around art again in autumn 2018. A large art fair, an art week, various exhibition projects and the Long Night of Museums turn Vienna into the place to be, especially for fans of contemporary art from around the world.
From September 27 to 30, 2018, the art fair viennacontemporary presents contemporary art with a focus on Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe in the Marx Halle in the 3rd district. Around 100 galleries and institutions from 23 countries are represented, and there's also a supporting program with performances, special exhibitions and talks with artists. The new program item "Explorations" shows curated booth presentations at selected galleries.
International curators show exhibitions of contemporary art in selected galleries across Vienna: That's the concept of curated by_vienna, which runs from September 14 to October 13, 2018. The main topic of this year’s festival focuses on the city of Vienna itself – with its historic and present-day potentials in the area of contemporary art. By contrast, Parallel Vienna presents divergent positions of young and established contemporary art from September 25 to 30, 2018.
During the Long Night of Museums (6 October) a single ticket acts as a passe-partout for around 100 Viennese museums, galleries and cultural institutions between 6pm and 1am. In addition to exhibitions and art shows, the event also features discussions with artists, readings and live music. The Long Night ticket also acts as a free pass for the special shuttle bus and the Viennese public transportation network.
Finally, the Vienna Art Week from November 19 to 25, 2018 also serves up a full art program under the slogan "Promising Paradise": Visitors can look forward to exhibitions, panel discussions, lectures, talks with artists, special guided tours, installations, interventions and performances.
Art&Antique is the fair for art, antiques and design, and will be held at the Imperial Palace in Vienna from 10 to 18 November 2018. Numerous national and international galleries offer Orientalia, antiques, glass, furniture, handicrafts and sculptures.
