comunicato stampa

VIENNA ART WEEK, now in its ninth edition, has become an annual fixture in Vienna’s cultural life. Once again, this year’s art festival – initiated by the Dorotheum and hosted by Art Cluster Vienna – has managed to encourage and foster cooperation between global and Austrian art-world players.

“Projecting Worlds”, the motto of this year’s festival from 18 to 24 November, draws on topics and positions related to the role of artistic expression in reinforcing identity. Within a framework of exhibitions, interventions, studio visits, gallery tours, curator-led excursions, artist talks, lectures, performances and podium discussions, VIENNA ART WEEK 2013 spotlights the artist as the creator of artworks and narrator of his or her own cosmos, focusing on the dialogue between the artist and the viewer.

The charm of deceleration: art takes time
Viewing art is a kind of catalysis, a gentle introduction to a world that leaves room and time for both creativity and interpretation. In a world of ubiquitous information technology, with a population suffering from permanent sensory overload, deceleration becomes the nostalgic epitome of a contemporary lifestyle. Art satisfies our longings and creates new desire, but it takes time to immerse oneself into the cosmos of an artist and embrace his or her narrative. This cosmos unveils the artists’ inner worlds, yet it is also a projection of other, interdependent and mutually-reinforcing conditions.

Vibrant art scene
Vienna has long been globally renowned for its high density of great museums and lively gallery scene. In recent years, it has also developed a wide network of alternative project spaces, with artists opening their own showrooms and numerous exhibition spaces run by highly-committed, smaller associations. VIENNA ART WEEK has responded to this development, making the vibrant scene a fixture in its program since 2009.

OPEN STUDIO DAY: art at first hand
One of VIENNA ART WEEK’s aims is to give artists living and working in Vienna a platform. Last year, the OPEN STUDIO DAY emerged from the VIENNA ART WEEK’s former Studio Visits, i.e. extremely popular curator-led visits to artists’ studios. Art lovers can now choose unlimited from a great number of studios and enjoy a glimpse over the artists’ shoulders. On Saturday, 23 November 2013, the art festival once again affords the unique opportunity to visit artists in their studios: around 100 renowned Viennese artists nominated by Janina Falkner (curator, MAK Contemporary Art Collection), Severin Dünser (curator, Belvedere Contemporary Art Collection), Alexandra Grausam (Head of das weisse haus) and Bettina Spörr (curator, Secession) will open their studios to the public to show how they work, give an insight into their own art worlds (true to this year’s motto “Projecting Worlds”), get in touch with the art-loving public and present their recent works or works in progress. Curator-led Open Talks – i.e. conversations between artists and curators – will be held in the studios of twelve participating artists to provide the discursive framework and top off the program.
