Galleries in Vienna
Contemporary art lovers will find what they are looking for in Schleifmühlgasse, Vienna’s new modern art hotspot. Galleries like Kargl, Engholm Engelhorn and Senn have all set up shop in this area, a stone’s throw from the flea market, where cognoscenti can still find true treasures.
Vienna's Old Town is also home to numerous contemporary art galleries. Steinek has Gudrun Kampl and Matthias Herrmann under contract. Ulysses represents stars such as sculptors Joannis Avramidis and Bruno Gironcoli, and sells splatter paintings by Hermann Nitsch and overpaintings by Arnulf Rainer.
The gallery Bäckerstrasse4 offers Young Art: artists who are still being educated or have just finished are given the opportunity to exhibit their works here. Selected by a professional jury, the pieces are shown four times a year. The gallery Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art (MAM) shows renowned artists of Austrian or international repute, specifically from Spain. The gallery owner Grita Insam specialises in contemporary and conceptual art. Her gallery was the launching pad for such international stars as Laurie Anderson and Cindy Sherman.
Furniture, antique clocks, paintings and crafts from the 18th and early 19th century can be found at the art dealer Stephan Andréewitch on Stallburggasse. The paintings offered by the gallery are primarily miniatures from the Biedermeier period, classical landscape paintings, and works by the old masters. Porcelain vases, candlesticks and "Zwischengoldglas" - glasses with gold leaf between two glass layers - from the Baroque to the Biedermeier periods round off the collection.
