Together, these thirteen artistic positions will offer audiences a stimulating dive into Vienna’s art scene, providing a snapshot of the participating galleries’ diverse programs and current artistic practices in the Austrian capital. A varied range of works will be on view, from pieces by local emerging artists such as Melanie Ebenhoch and Martin Hotter to work by internationally established artists such as Austrian painter Ernst Caramelle and 2020 Hasselblad Award recipient Alfredo Jaar. Seven out of the thirteen artists live and work in Vienna, and more than half of the galleries presenting them opened in the city less than 10 years ago.
INTERCONTI WIENA boutique fair initiated by Vienna-based galleries
A cross-generational group of thirteen artists and artist collectives, more than half of whom live and work in Vienna,
will be presented by participating galleries for INTERCONTI WIEN.
The digital and physical chapters of Interconti stand on equal footing. The fair is articulated around the idea of hybridity: Viewers will be able to enjoy the fair on-site in Vienna and online, and exhibitors will have the possibility to showcase their presentations in an innovative manner to both local and international audiences. The virtual component of the fair, conceived by the digital agency treat, is a bespoke platform allowing for an immersive experience. While all galleries will be able to offer their works on Interconti’s website, it goes beyond the idea of a basic online viewing room. A continuous, interactive video stream of installation views, single artwork shots, and interviews with participating gallerists and artists will provide in-depth insight into the featured projects. The video stream will serve not only as the central narrative of INTERCONTI WIEN’s virtual presence, but also as its navigational tool. Users will have the option to learn more about artworks, artists, and galleries via several portals embedded into the stream, which they can navigate to their liking.
QUOTES ‘With INTERCONTI WIEN,
we hope to reach a wider audience, as we believe there is an interest beyond Austria for the art scene in Vienna – a city where a number of young galleries have opened during the past few years,’ say organizers Emanuel Layr, Henrikke Nielsen, and Sophie Tappeiner.
‘In a time where other fairs cannot take place, we are excited to host an event in Vienna, with the potential of reaching an international audience through an experimental online platform,’ they add.
Running January 28 – February 7, 2021,
INTERCONTI WIEN will take place under the strictest hygiene precautions and in compliance with the current Austrian government regulations.
