This year at Parallel we are showing our global audience one of the major galleries in Vienna: Christine König ant König2 by Robby Greif with two awesome artists: Marusa Sagadin and Thilo Jenssen . It was a blast ...
In the viennese art world there are women gallerists who are an inspiration. One of these women is Christine König. She's been in the gallery business since 25 years and since 1999 is located in the Schleifmühlgasse, one of my favorite streets in Vienna whose main attraction is a street filled with contemporary art galleries.
In 2017 she opened the project space KOENIG2 BY_ROBBYGREIF. Providing a special project space focusing on young and experimental positions. I had two good reasons to visit her room at the Parallel Art Fair this year. First because I am always interested in what the Koenig Gallery is showing and secondly because she is exhibiting an artist I know and admire Maruša Sagadin. Be sure to visit the fair and don't forget to go to room 3.01 at parallel Vienna 2020 to see the work of artists Marusa Sagadin and Thilo Jenssen.
Curated by Bjorn Stern for Galerie Kandlhofer, the exhibition "Weltgeist" examines the influence of humanism and its development over time. Seven international artists, including Janine Antoni, Reza Aramesh, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and the renowned late Hermann Nitsch, employ their individual techniques to shed light on the theme.
In her exhibition WATER, artist VIVIAN GREVEN reveals a series of large-scale paintings depicting different moments of birth. Greven paints birth explicitly, depicting it in itself, as an act of action. And despite the explicit pictorial subjects, it seems as if time stands still in the paintings: they hold something infinite.
Munchies Art Club is thrilled to share Alfredo Barsuglia's first solo exhibition "Pille" at Galerie3 in Austria features paintings, objects, and large pneumatic pills. The exhibition offers a unique and fantastic spatial experience, with clear and poetic image motifs and graffiti sprayed directly onto the gallery walls.
Our eyes, restlessly moving, almost dancing, follow the lines and diagonals shooting from the core in multiple directions. Every single line of colourful fabrics, hand-written expressive notes, tokens of systems, symbols or other visual aids imply a passionate, deep dive into unexplored topics. An information cluster instantly triggers our fantasy. What are these? The eager notes of an explorer, accounts from a diary, mental maps, or obsessive doodles with signs of automatism combined with an intentional loss of control?
