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.

Domi Gratz is one of the first artists we featured, we believe in her, she’s extremely gifted and a very promising artist.

The serenity I felt in this room, let me experience for a moment how it must have been in here in the early days.
Amazing light installation in the old abandoned E.R.
These really cool little sculptures had a kind of spooky realness to them.
Visit the room of the artist Schicho on the ground floor of the Semmelweiss Klinik to view more of his work.
Anne Glassner the luckiest girl at the fair, in bed all day all cozy, as the rest of the exhibitors stood for hours or sat on uncomfortable chairs.
I get to pass this room a lot, and every time I do I love to look inside.
My husband and I fell in love with the wonderful works from Philip Mentzingen.
Me standing amazed before this incredible art work "A brand new age" from the artist Linda Berger
