This year, viennacontemporary presents a rich program with the curated sections ZONE1 and Explorations, and a special show Focus: Armenia that offers a glimpse of the Armenian realities in the rethinking of six contemporary artists. This presentation is the very first overview of Armenian contemporary art at an international art fair. Evolved from the Cinema, the program Living image uses Augmented Reality technology to feature artistic films surrounding the topic of music.
