curated by_vienna is an ambitious Viennese project focused on promoting the cooperation between galleries and curators. As a truly multicultural metropolis at the crossroads between Europe’s North and South, between East and West, between tradition and avant-garde, Vienna boasts a vibrant contemporary art scene. In addition to its world-class museums and non-profit art institutions, there are an amazing number of first-rate galleries that have established an international reputation for cutting-edge programming and are regular participants at the finest art fairs.
2010: Following a successful start in 2009 curated by_vienna will take place for the second time in Vienna from May 6 through June 5, 2010. For this year’s project the 20 participating galleries have invited artists to curate exhibitions on the topic of “art&film“ in the respective gallery premises.
art&film: The theme chosen for curated by_vienna 2010 is “art&film“. 20 concurrent exhibitions will deal with the current and latest trends in visual arts involving film and moving images. What is it that fascinates contemporary artists about film?
The curated by_vienna 2010 exhibitions will be on view from May 6 through June 5, 2010. The official opening will take place on Thursday, May 6, 2010 from 6 pm to 10 pm. A gallery breakfast held on May 8, 2010 from 11 am to 1 pm provides an additional opportunity to visit curated by_vienna 2010.
The opening of curated by_vienna 2010 coincides with VIENNAFAIR (May 6 through 9, 2010), allowing visitors traveling to Vienna to view the exhibitions and VIENNAFAIR.
curated by_vienna 2010 is coordinated and funded by departure, Vienna’s point of contact and funding organization in the field of creative industries including visual arts and the art market.
