This year's Parallel Vienna Art Fair 2021 is currently taking place at the stunning Maternity Clinic Semmelweiss, abandoned and empty for two years. The art fair breaths breathtaking contemporary art into this historical place, reawakening it for a few days back to vibrant life.

The ninth Parallel Art Fair takes place in the historical Women’s maternity clinic Semmelweis, in the 18th district of Vienna.
The fair presents Austrian and international contemporary art spread out all over the amazing and abandoned space. It is uncanny how the Parallel team always finds these exclusive spaces, breathing life into forsaken buildings, exuding art into old forgotten rooms, and with endless hallways once again filled with energy.

The selection is curated and by invitation only. Emerging and established artists from Austria and beyond receive a one-of-a-kind experience to interact with vacated historical buildings. The result is always invigorating!

PARALLEL VIENNA is a wonderful mix of art fair, exhibition platform, and artist studio. GALLERY STATEMENTS, PROJECT STATEMENTS, ARTIST STATEMENTS, and artistic INTERVENTIONS offer a wide range of contemporary art.
