International curators present exhibitions in Vienna's leading contemporary art galleries.
curated by_vienna was initiated by the Vienna Business Agency's creative unit, departure, in 2009 to support systematic cooperation between Viennese contemporary art galleries and international curators. Vienna boasts a vibrant contemporary art scene as a European metropolis at the crossroads between North and South, East and West, tradition and innovation. In addition to its world-class museums and non-profit organisations, there are numerous excellent galleries that have earned an international reputation through pioneering programmes.
Reflections on the intersections between art and capital provide the impetus for curated by_vienna 2015. Philosopher Armen Avanessian's epynomous essay "Tomorrow Today" addresses artistic strategies for a post-capitalist era. Avanessian explores future (and already existing) alternative models of art and economy. 20 international curators have embarked upon this experiment and are presenting exhibitions on the topic in 20 selected Viennese galleries.
