What not to miss at Vienna Contemporary art fair this weekend: our top 5 recommendations

As the sheer flood of galleries, represented artists and shown pieces can be overwhelming, we went without sleep for the past nights to work through the whole catalogue to present you our top 5 recommendations of the gallery stands worth checking out:

1. Galerie Clemens Gunzer

Focusing on only the one artist is Galerie Clemens Gunzer (Zürich-Kitzbühel) and we do believe that Peter Jellitsch’s work is worth a visit.
Where: Stand G27

2. Galerie Krinzinger

If you’re in it for the big names, you should visit Galerie Krinzinger (Vienna)  who will be showcasing artists Marina Abramovic, Martha Jungwirth, Brigitte Kowanz, Jonathan Meese and Daniel Spoerri, among others. Big names need a lot of space, which is why the gallery spreads over three booths – go big, or go home…
Where: Stand B35, C20, D19

3. Konzett Gallery

Other well-established Austrian artists can be found at Konzett gallery (Vienna) – Günther Brus, Otto Muehl, Hermann Nitsch, Maria Lassnig – along with many more talents from the past.
Where: Stand G14


4. Galerie Nathalie Halgand

Galerie Nathalie Halgand (Vienna) proves how different Austrian curating. They will be celebrating their second appearance at VC this year. We’re especially looking forward to Greek-born, and now Berlin-based, Yorgos Stamkopoulos’ abstract paintings. Nathalie used to be head of  Vienna’s Inoperable Gallery before opening her own space for various media art in early 2016.
Where: Stand E22

5. Flatland Gallery

Finally, after all those impressions and somehow dizzy days (mostly from the champagne involved), we arrive in front of Guy Yanai’s colourful drawings and daydream of sailboats in front of Frishman Beach in Tel Aviv, the artist’s current hometown. His, and other captivating pieces, (Stelios Karamanolis!) can be found at the stand from Flatland Gallery (Amsterdam).
Where: Stand A29
