Art Austria trade fair to open again in April

An annual art fair for collectors of Austrian art is taking place once again in Vienna this April at the Leopold Museum.

Around 45 artists will be showcasing their work over three floors of the museum in an area of 2,450 metres squared as part of 'Art Austria' trade fair from 3 to 6 April

Exhibitors include galleries in Austria as well art dealers - all of whom will be presenting some of the finest art to come from Austria, including works from the Art Nouveau, Biedermeier and Classicism eras as well as from the more modern and contemporary period.

This year 'Art Austria' is also handing out a number prizes of 10,000 Euros each to artists nominated by exhibitors. Artists should fall under one of three categories - "forgotten, forsaken, underestimated", "established, arrived" and "young, emerging". The artists will be judge by an expert jury.

As part of the show, an 'Art Austria' magazine will also be published and include discussions of art by journalists, a forward from artist Barbara Catoir as well as details about the fair and works being shown there. These will be distributed as supplements with newspapers Die Presse, Der Standard, and Kurier on the weekend before the fair.

During the show, a team will be working on a digital project to present 'Art Austria' on the internet, photographing the booths the night before and providing links to more information about the artworks via email or texts - hoping to make 'Art Austria' the first trade fair in the world to stay open 24 hours.

'Art Austria' opens from Thursday 3 April 11.00 am to 9.00 pm, Friday 4 April and Saturday 6 April from 11.00 am to 7.00 pm and Sunday 6 April from 11.00 am to 6.00 pm.
