The Salzburger Kunstverein is pleased to announce its 2017 winter & spring exhibition programme, which includes five group and solo exhibitions. A series of events complements the exhibition program. See our website for more information.
 

Winter 2017
All three exhibitions open on Friday, February 24, 8pm

Main Gallery:
A Painter’s Doubt

February 24–April 23, 2017

This exhibition modestly raises questions of phenomenology today through the lens of several contemporary painters. The common denominator is a link around ideas of perception and aspects of phenomena, as identifiable in each of the artists’ work. The key notion to explore is how painting itself, perhaps more powerfully than any other medium of representation, continues to be a method of exploring phenomenological pursuits and representing sensations and visions that have parallels with questions of phenomenology today.

Artists: Anna Bjerger (Sweden), Vivian Greven (Germany), Flora Hauser (Austria), Gregor Hildebrandt (Germany), Carl Mannov (Denmark), Kirsi Mikkola (Finland), Mairead O’hEocha (Ireland), Daniel Pitin (Czech Republic), Titania Seidl (Austria)

Kabinett:
Margareta Klose: Im Grünen

February 24–April 23, 2017

This young, Salzburg-based artist presents an installation in the Kabinett exhibition space, combining painting with text and sculptural elements, and reflecting upon elements of duration, beauty and ephemerality.

Ringgalerie:
Nevin Aladağ: Five Stones Game

February 24, 2017–February 4, 2018

Based in Berlin, Nevin Aladağ uses everyday objects and situations as a starting point for her artworks, in which she deals with cultural and political codes, as well as their origins and histories. For 2017, Aladağ is invited to do a year-long exhibition in the Ringgalerie. The artist will make a full installation in all four corridors, the first one in the space rather than on its walls.


Spring 2017
Both exhibitions open on Friday, May 5, 8pm

Main Gallery:
Floating Self: Rabih Mrou
é, Rosa Rendl, Amalia Ulman
May 5–July 16, 2017

This exhibition examines notions of self and selfhood as generated through online and mass media images. While all three artists explore very different territory when it comes to questions of online identity, each also have taken critical and even provocative positions regarding these notions. Rabih Mroué has long explored the legacy of war and the impact of this violence upon the psyche and ideas of nationhood and identity. Meanwhile Amalia Ulman has become an art-world sensation for her performances and use of different online identities. Vienna-based Rosa Rendl also renders images of selfhood with a knowing nod towards fashion photography and more common forms of self-representation.

Kabinett:
disposed

May 5–July 16, 2017

This nomadic, Salzburg-based artist collective has been invited to house the Kabinett exhibition space for two months, where they will realize a variety of events, including discussions, presentations, workshops and performances, and effectively use the space as an office and studio for production and cross-pollination.
