In Its Eleventh Edition, This PARALLEL VIENNA Art Fair, Originally Conceived As An Alternative To The "Mainstream" Viennacontemporary Fair, Adheres Faithfully To Its Established Traditions.

Featuring Young Artists, Students From The University Of Applied Arts Vienna, Linz, And The Academy Of Fine Arts, Including Notable Classes Like Daniel Richter's And Lena Jakob Knebel's, The Fair Hosts Approximately 150 Exhibitors Showcasing The Works Of Around 600 Artists Across Three Distinct Pavilions: 16, 22, And 24, Along With Vacant Buildings Designed By The Renowned Art Nouveau Architect, Otto Wagner.

Just As In 2022, This Year, Alongside The Vienna Contemporary And Curated By Gallery Festival, The Fair Marks The Opening Of The Art Season, Providing An Alternative Perspective.
