Diverse exhibitions of Austrian classic and contemporary art in Vienna’s art quarter

As experts with year-long professional experience and art historical expertise we do our best to design comprehensive exhibitions that allow for Austrian art of the 20th and 21st century to be experienced both in its original context and from a contemporary perspective. Therefore, we regularly organize solo exhibitions as well as themed exhibitions in order to appropriately appreciate extraordinary artists.

Since 1900, Austria has produced so many talents, stylistic movements and artistic techniques that we are constantly doing our best to integrate this richness and versatility into an overall context. Every artist is a child of his time and a comprehensively conceived exhibition not only recognizes the oeuvre per se but also the influences and impulses that led to the creation of the work. This way, we hope, Austrian art can be perceived as a holistic experience bridging art history and contemporary vistas.

Solo exhibitions, themed exhibitions and overview exhibitions

As experienced gallerists we have a lot of different ways to plan and realize exhibitions. Each artist places certain foci in his work and concentrates on different themes, techniques and styles. New experiences, impulses and inspirations emerge and for many artists the contact with others brings about new and exciting symbioses that can lead to completely new stylistic directions. Notwithstanding all external influences, a great artist always keeps his idiosyncrasies that make him and his work clearly distinctive.

One of the most important goals of an exhibition is to show the developments and the consequences of artistic creation. In this sense, we carefully adapt each and every exhibition to the artist’s message and his oeuvre. Sometimes a solo show is appropriate because it allows investigating a certain period in the artist’s life like a magnifying glass. Themed exhibitions are well suited to give visitors an overview of the ways in which a certain theme inspired different artists. Our overview exhibitions, which regularly take place in spring and autumn, highlight our newly acquired paintings, sculptures and design objects from the long 20th century.

Publications accompanying our exhibitions in Vienna’s art quarter

Of course, a thoroughly researched and high-quality catalogue accompanies every exhibition shown in the Galerie bei der Albertina ▪ Zetter. Ideally, an exhibition catalogue provides not only pictures of the artworks on offer but also relevant contextual information about the artist and the genesis of the work. This way, we hope to provide a holistic approach that readers can enjoy.

Please find more information on our past and future exhibitions of Austrian art on our website. Discover solo exhibitions dedicated to outstanding artists like Kiki Kogelnik, Joannis Avramidis, Gunter Damisch, Alfons Walde and many others. Browse through the extensive catalogues published, for example, in course of the themed exhibitions »Woodcut. Vienna from 1900 onward« or »Wiener Wohnkultur 1900 bis 1930«. The publications accompanying our regular overview exhibitions called Spring Novelties and Autumn Novelties respectively, offer good insight into styles and directions of Austrian art.
