PARALLEL VIENNA presents young and emerging as well as established artistic practices and brings together art initiatives of every kind–art associations, galleries, project spaces, off spaces and artist spaces–both Austrian and international, all under one roof.
It combines local artistic creation with international trends and contributes to building networks and fosters exchanges between artists, curators, collectors and exhibition visitors.
WHAT MAKES THE PARALLEL ART FAIR SO UNIQUE?
PARALLEL VIENNA is a hybrid between art fair, exhibition platform and artist studio. It unites exhibitions made by commercial galleries (GALLERY STATEMENTS — each with a solo presentation of an artist), off-spaces and art associations (PROJECT STATEMENTS – a solo or group show) and solo presentations by selected artists (ARTIST STATEMENTS or artistic INTERVENTIONS in the building invited directly by PARALLEL VIENNA).
Instead of the usual booths at art fairs, each exhibitor occupies a separate room of the building in which the exhibition is presented. These site-specific artworks and interventions are the trademark of PARALLEL VIENNA and make the fair a unique and alternative exhibition format outside the“white cube. As a curated art fair participation is upon invitation by the curatorial team only.
