The Gallery as a Laboratory
Since its establishment in 2004, the Klara Wallner Gallery has seen itself as a kind of laboratory for contemporary art, exploring not just new trends in the art world, but also new spaces and means of presentation. The new gallery space is painted in color and not overly lit, but bathed in a warm light. What happens to a space or the art exhibited therein under these conditions? The White Cube as the ultimate exhibition space for art is challenged and under these environmental conditions art is allowed to blossom in its pure form.
The works of the gallery's artists cannot be grouped under one heading. Their formulations and demonstrations are individual, they have no common denominator thereby reflecting the program at the Klara Wallner Gallery, a program that consciously defies being pegged down. If there is a common theme to the gallery program it could be described as insubordination. This insubordination begins an interesting dialogue and leads to new insights.
Just like a laboratory, the exhibition program at Klara Wallner Gallery is the staging ground for several simultaneous research projects and visitors to the exhibitions - be they laymen or professionals - are transformed into researchers.
