About PARALLEL VIENNA
PARALLEL VIENNA 2013 is a platform for innovative forms of presentation of contemporary art - project spaces, artist-run spaces, artists and art collectives as well as new and established galleries.
PARALLEL VIENNA 2013 is open October 9–13, coinciding with Viennafair, in the “ehemalige K. u. K. Telegrafenamt at Börseplatz 1 in Vienna; 4 subway stops away from the fairgrounds.
The building offers thousands of square meters of unconventional exhibition spaces in the impressive architecture of a viennese city palais from the 19th century.
The initiators - a team of galerists, organizers and curators - intend to make a diverse selection of projects and perspectives accessible to a large audience and under a single roof.
The kafkaesque building sets an exceptional stage for a large variety of contemporary art practices, where innovative and established art can be discovered and recontextualised.
The organisers see the participants as the essential foundation of the internationally renowned Vienna art scene. These galleries and spaces are responsible for helping to develop and establish local and international artists and art movements in this city. An innovative curatorial model allows to integrate commercial and experimental initatives without introducing any kind of hierarchy.
An exciting program of events and performances is set to take place throughout the entire weekend. Details to be announced soon.
