viennacontemporary Vienna

12. - 15. September 2024 | International Art Fair for Contemporary Art

The viennacontemporary – often simply abbreviated to "VC" – represents Vienna's annual showcase for contemporary art. Established in 2015, it quickly became an international hub for art enthusiasts and experts. Before 2015, the exhibition was known as the Viennafair, which had gained international acclaim. Managed by VC ARTFAIRS GmbH, the event unfolds every September at the Kursalon Wien. Also known as the Kursalon Hübner, this historic venue in the heart of Vienna was a favoured rendezvous for the Viennese elite in the 19th century.

This fair provides a platform to spotlight a diverse range of contemporary art, from the local scene and with a particular emphasis on gems from Eastern Europe. Attendees have the opportunity to appreciate pieces from painting, sculpture, photography, graphics, new media, to installation art. The exhibition covers a vast array of themes, from local to international creations. A significant contributor to the success of the viennacontemporary is its deep tie to Vienna, a city renowned for its longstanding artistic and cultural heritage. Not only has the fair become an integral part of Vienna's cultural festivities, but it also bolsters the city's stature as a pivotal European nexus for contemporary art. Exhibitors, encompassing gallery owners, artists, and craftsmen, display their creations and offerings here. The viennacontemporary draws a varied audience, from global art collectors and artists to curators and general art aficionados. The fair is also punctuated with periodic competitions and accolade distributions, heightening its allure. In conclusion, it's noteworthy that the Kursalon Wien is nestled in the Stadtpark, adjacent to pivotal landmarks such as the State Opera and St. Stephen's Cathedral. This positions it as a prime spot for viennacontemporary attendees to unwind or mingle with like-minded art enthusiasts. The locale echoes Vienna's rich cultural tapestry and its storied past, and is ideally linked to the public transport system. In the milieu of the viennacontemporary, it stands as a conduit bridging the city's historic and modern art landscapes.

The viennacontemporary will take place on 4 days from Thursday, 12. September to Sunday, 15. September 2024 in Vienna.
