Austria's top international art fair

Welcome to the 12th Viennafair

The 12th VIENNAFAIR will take place from the 6th – 9th October 2016 at the renowned and popular fair venue Reed Messe Wien, Hall A. The team at art-port.cc, organisers of Art Austria and Art Salzburg (with a history of 16 successful art fairs since 2008), is delighted to have the opportunity to present this art fair of high significance to Vienna, Austria and Europe.

The 12th VIENNAFAIR continues to build on its reputation as an “International Contemporary Art Fair” and will stimulate the art market in Vienna with fresh ideas and concepts.

Alongside the established VIENNAFAIR was the premiere of the VIENNAFAIR MASTERS in 2015. Spatially and visually independent, this classic “International Fine Art Fair” occupied approximately 30% of the venue. For more information about this exceptional event please visit www.viennafairmasters.com

We organized 2015 a special museum programme within the fair, in collaboration with highly acclaimed, internationally engaged curator Angela Stief. This exhibition brought together the work of 60 artists from numerous countries presented over 500m². Under the title “Kinesis – A study of movement in image”, Angela Stief centered her focus on Viennese Kineticism, the 1960s and contemporary art. This is the first in a series of supporting exhibitions that seek to create a survey of local traditions and contemporary modes of production, taking Austria’s cultural diversity and artistic richness as a starting point, and relying on loans from both private collections and public institutions.

VIENNAFAIR SPECIALS 2015:

kínēsis. A study on movement in images

Using various approaches in the 20th and 21st centuries, kínēsis – A study on movement in images, examines how dynamism, movement and perception experiments have entered the artistic topography of the last hundred years. Starting with contemporary art, the exhibition attempts a demiurgic penetration of the history of kínēsis and the presentation of movement in images. It stands under the mantra of the Hungarian avant-gardist László Moholy-Nagy: “Vision in Motion – Motion in Vision”.

The show refers to the historic developments of Modernism and thus to a concrete and constructivist idiom that characterised many art movements of the 20th century and is investigated in terms of its various dynamising aesthetics.

Dealing with perception and in particular destabilisation, which was also the stated goal of Op-Art, is an important pillar of the show. From the mid 1960s, it deals with phenomena that use abstract shape patterns and geometric figures in colour to induce surprising or confusing visual effects in the observer, as well as introducing movement and visual illusions. Artists frequently developed astonishing effects through the use of minimal means and reduced the colour pallet to its greatest possible contrast: black and white became synonymous for a fundamental analysis of pictorial means, the medium, the composition, the material and ultimately also underscored the receptive quality of the artworks. The end point to which each abstract-geometrical art always leads has been revised or at least delayed through the introduction of dynamising artistic strategies. The eye as the human organ of sight became an artistic tool for investigating reality and learning about perception as well as investigating illusion and dis-illusion. On the one hand the images move, on the other the observers are required to move in front of the artworks in order to capture their intrinsic, dynamic potential. Nowadays, the recipient is a natural part of the aesthetic configurations of the present; back then that was still an innovative concept. Kinetic art has adapted over time to the new paradigmatic circumstances and media conditions, and developed itself accordingly. To a certain degree, the exhibition aims at making an example of the ahistoricity of art in a present that dissolves the historic succession of artistic forms in a juxtaposition of multiple styles and production methods. This means disregarding the pronouncement of the new and sees itself as a manifestation of a revision of artistic creativity, whereby the contemporary is formed through the dialogue with the past.

COLORES UNITI- An artist, a wall and lots of colour

Colour as a stylistic device of art has largely detached itself in the exhibition from classic colour media such as oil and acrylic as well as pictorial gestures. And yet COLORES UNITI brings together works that arise out of a pictorial attitude and come from artists who describe themselves above all as drawers, ceramicists, conceptualists, chaos researchers and sculptors. On the nine walls of the show, visual alliances form between the individual positions, combining to create a spatial chorus of heterogeneous voices, materials and approaches. The wall colour captures, binds, contradicts and reflects the artistic position as a sensitive, wild and unpredictable counterpart. Spatial openings, inclusions and marginal positions follow on naturally. Each artistic statement is part of a collectivity strengthened by the autonomy of each individual. The polychromatic echo of the line meets pressed sand, light palimpsests meet structural images. Checked patterns enter the competition with each other and form contrasting films to the lyrical games of the unconscious, which manifest themselves in Rorschach tests. Realistic sprinklings interrupt the abstract, modernist orientations of the imagery. Sculptural constructions, haptic art impressions and the fetishism of each material aesthetic – see the thick, glimmering application of graphite – welcome the experiment, the creation of form and the mistake. The different generations of the show intone a visual harmony in the dissonance because it is modern to negate and to celebrate the colour value: coloured and white, grey and neon. The colours have voices: multiple voices!
