Art Fair Vienna / 2021
June 24–27, 2021
Vienna, Austria

Established and emerging international galleries and artists can be experienced at Vienna’s Marx Halle. The innovative fair format for contemporary art starts with 71 solo presentations by 59 galleries and the three curated sections “Perspectives” by Tevž Logar, “Utopia: Post-War” by Sabine Breitwieser and “Interface – Contemporary New Media and Digital Art” by Marlies Wirth.

Each presentation one artist: at the first SPARK Art Fair Vienna, an innovative fair format will experience its world premiere. Unique for an art fair with an international format and renowned galleries, only solo presentations will be shown – total of 71, with 34 of them in the three curated sections. “We want to offer galleries and artists as much space as possible and thus emphasizes the important role they play in the art market. After all, they provide the new and exciting – the art we are privileged to experience in the collections and museums of today and tomorrow,” says Renger van den Heuvel, Managing Director and Founder of SPARK Art Fair Vienna, explaining the idea behind the concept.
