2nd ART Salzburg Contemporary | the PhotoPhore partnership
The second edition of ART SALZBURG CONTEMPORARY & ANTIQUES INTERNATIONAL is starting!
The PhotoPhore is a proud partner of this important brand new Art Fair in Austra.
After having a great take-off at the Exhibition Centre of Salzburg last year, the second edition of the international art fair ART SALZBURG CONTEMPORARY & ANTIQUES INTERNATIONAL will present a multifaceted and high-class international program.
«It is and has always been important to us that the visitors of our fairs can not only experience and enjoy well-known positions and artistic characteristics of the Austrian art market, but also get a vivid impression of the diversity on the international art market» emphasizes Johanna Penz, the organizer and director of the fair.
An important aspect is the right mix of big established names, for example, Pop Art artists like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Tom Wesselmann with younger contemporary artists, who are currently establishing themselves on an international level, such as Heiner Meyer, Matko Vekić, or the German performance and conceptual artist Mia Florentine Weiss, explains Penz.
However, a conscious reference to Salzburg as a city of art and artists is also a major concern to her. Besides the Salzburg-born artist Jakob Gasteiger, who likes to create his highly sculptural pictures by arranging various techniques in a completely new way, and to whom a special show was dedicated last year, the artist photographer Juergen Norbert Fux and the sculptor Martin Amerbauer will also be presented this year.
This means that two other highly interesting and internationally well-connected artists from Salzburg will show their works to the visitors. It was only last year that Amerbauer became renowned for receiving the Promotional Award of Fine Arts from the Land Salzburg for its clear, reduced formal language.
After its launch last June, the second edition of the ART SALZBURG CONTEMPORARY & ANTIQUES INTERNATIONAL will take place from 19 to 21 October this year in hall 1 of the Salzburg Exhibition Centre, in fact, at the same time as the classic car exhibition CLASSIC EXPO.
«A perfect synergy», says ART director Penz staunchly. «Both of us address related target groups and will therefore perfectly complement and stimulate each other».
