Kunsthalle Wien – Experience Contemporary Art

Unlock Art™ in Vienna

Kunsthalle Wien is the leading exhibition hall for contemporary art in Vienna. At its two locations in the heart of the Museumsquartier and at Karlsplatz - both within walking distance from the hotel Le Méridien -  themed group exhibitions, and exciting solo presentations provide insight into the current national and international art scene.

Kunsthalle Wien is also an exceptional architectural highlight: the baroque Winterreithalle (winter riding arena), originally designed by Johann Fischer von Erlach, was expanded by a modern annex, which ingeniously combines the historic building with contemporary architecture. Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz is a modern, permeable pavilion with large glass surfaces which place the works on view in the context of the exterior urban environment.

Unlock Art at Le Méridien Vienna with Kunsthalle Wien: Kate Newby. I can’t nail the days down .

Kate Newby - artist from New Zealand

Kate Newby. I can’t nail the days down

16.05.2018 - 02.09.2018

For her first institutional exhibition in Austria I can’t nail the days down, New Zealand artist Kate Newby creates site-responsive works that tie to her ongoing interest in ephemeral and often peripheral situations. Engaging with Kunsthalle Wien’s glass pavilion and the immediate environment at Karlsplatz, she

develops spatial interventions that confuse the line between object and surrounding. The exhibition will be presented in the indoor as well as outdoor space, and subtly calls for a bodily encounter with the works as well as the proximate location. Kate Newby deploys common materials such as brick, clay and glass in unusual manners, and draws attention to the often overlooked details of everyday life and the particular within the ordinary.
