Art Vienna: New Art Fair at the Leopold Museum

February 15, 2017 by Mary

During recent years, the Leopold Museum, centrally located in the midst of Vienna’s large cultural quarter “Museumsquartier” and ideally suited for temporary events, has established itself as a unique venue for fairs. Along with the museum’s new leadership, it seemed fitting to adapt the fair venue Leopold Museum to current circumstances, reorienting itself towards the changing interests of audiences and exhibitors.

A new partner was found in the Viennese presenter M.A.C. Hoffmann, for decades the driving force behind the ART&ANTIQUE fairs at Vienna’s Hofburg and Salzburg’s Residenz.

The first edition of Art Vienna will be held from February 23 to 26, 2017.

In terms of content, Art Vienna focuses on Austrian and international art of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, with particular emphasis on classical modernism and contemporary art.

The fair’s orientation corresponds to the artistic concept of the Leopold Museum under its new museological director, Hans-Peter Wipplinger, who is planning to use the central holdings of the collection focusing on Austrian classical modernism, to build bridges towards advanced modernism and the present.

Art Vienna offers space for approximately 40 exhibitors on two-floor levels, bringing together the best and most renowned Austrian gallery owners and dealers, alongside selected international exhibitors.

To Alexandra Graski-Hoffmann, managing director of M.A.C. Hoffmann, Art Vienna is a fascinating new challenge: “Given its special programmatic focus and thanks to the unique synergies with the Leopold Museum, I am convinced that Art Vienna will quickly establish itself as the central Viennese art fair event at the beginning of the year, offering a fresh, intriguing fair project as a counterbalance to the art scene’s already rather overextended autumn season.”

Rising to this challenge, Art Vienna opens its doors for the first time from February 23 to 26. But not only that, next to its main areas of focus, contemporary art, it also creates a place for classical modernism. Without exception, the most important criterion is quality. And when the mixture is right, this opens up and unfolds a field of tension for the viewer – in analogy to the artistic concept of the fair’s venue, the Leopold Museum, where the curators take the central pillar of the collection, Austrian classical modernism, as the point of departure for exploring advanced modernism and contemporary artworks. Art Vienna assembles outstanding Austrian gallery owners and dealers as well as selected international exhibitors.

Other Criteria are pleased to participate in this first edition of Art Vienna. Featuring  Damien Hirst’s most recent collaboration with French crystal connoisseurs Lalique, alongside editions from  Harland Miller Rachel Howard and Don Brown.
