Art Fair Vienna

SPARK Art Fair Vienna advocates for a new art fair concept, addressing the challenges of the art market. Based on a strong trust in art and the role of the galleries in the primary art market, SPARK Art Fair Vienna is the only international art fair focusing exclusively on solo presentations.

Its unique exhibition architecture is inspired by the steel construction of the historic MARX HALLE. A democratisation model provides all galleries with same-size booths and architectural orientation. The vastness of the exhibition space and the booths’ open structure paves the way for a deeper and more personal encounter with each individual artistic position, lending SPARK an institutional flair.

Through this exclusivity, the artists receive full attention for their work, the galleries are perceived more strongly in their role as developers and presenters, enabling collectors and art enthusiasts to engage on a more profound level with contemporary artists and possibly make surprising (re)discoveries.

As a consequent development of SPARK Art Fair’s concept, the selection of galleries and especially of the represented artistic positions is made by a curatorial & advisory board led by Walter Seidl and Jan Gustav Fiedler.

  • Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Primitive
    Mar 8 – Jun 2, 2024

    Marking the first time the work is displayed in Hong Kong, Primitive (2009) by Thai artist and filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul (b. 1970) is a multi-channel video installation that also incorporates two other short films and an artist’s book. It represents a pivotal moment in the artist’s career when the bridging of visual art, moving image, and cinema became a defining aspect of his practice. (more…)

    NW
    Aalst, Belgium
    The new NW is inaugurated with the opening exhibition Ritual in Transfigured Time, named after the 1946 short film of the same name by Maya Deren (Kiev, 1917–New York, 1961). Deren, whose life was driven by a desire for freedom, was a guiding light for us in devising the exhibition and film programme, as well as the principles of our revitalised organisation: dialogue, collaboration, experiment and the breaking down of boundaries.
