Vienna Art Week was founded in 2004 as part of Art Cluster Vienna. It is now Vienna’s leading platform for visual arts, reflecting the importance, substantial depth and great variety of art institutions, academies, galleries, art spaces, and artists based in Vienna. It connects its partners and represents them to the outside world. Each year in November, Vienna Art Week draws a crowd of approximately 35,000 visitors to some 200 events held by 70 program partners. The festival program ranges from exhibition openings to guided studio tours, lectures, panel discussions, symposia, and interventions in public space.
