SPARK Is the Newest Vienna Art Fair We Can’t Wait to Explore This June
Who don’t miss going to art fair?
Around the Globe 07 Jun 2021

Who doesn’t miss going to art fair? With strong regional roots, the premiere of this new international fair for contemporary art in Vienna will feature 59 galleries from Austria and its neighbouring countries. Between 24th and 27th June, around 71 solo presentations will be exhibited in Vienna’s Marx Halle, 34 of them in the three curated sections “Utopia: Post-War” by Sabine Breitwieser, “Perspectives” by Tevž Logar and “Interface – Contemporary New Media and Digital Art” by Marlies Wirth. Among the exciting line-up of solo presentations are some up-and-coming talents, such as Birke Gorm, Tilman Hornig, Jonas Lund, Nschotschi Haslinger, Irina Lotarevich and Niko Abramidis &NE. As a new production platform, SPARK will, as early as 2021, present numerous previously unseen works as well as works created especially for the fair. Together with galleries, we aim to develop the market locally and thereby help to generate a global fascination with new art”, explains Managing Director, Renger van den Heuvel.

We asked Renger a few questions to find out more about the fair and why we book our tickets right now.
