A week-long festival of the arts
Vienna Art Week was initiated seven years ago by the Art Cluster Vienna to raise the profile of the city's leading art institutions, museums and galleries on the international stage. Founded by the Dorotheum, the Art Cluster Vienna's members include some of the capital's most influential museums and cultural and educational facilities. The initiative has gone from strength-to-strength since its inception, and is now one of the leading art festivals in Europe. Over a period of seven days visitors will have the pick of numerous exhibition openings, special guided tours, gallery days, panel discussions and much more besides.
The 2011 event will focus on all aspects of Reflecting Reality, as it illustrates the ties between Vienna and other major world cultural capitals. It also explores the host city's international cachet as the birthplace of psychoanalysis, and examines interpretations of art as a mechanism for reflection against the prism of increasingly complex realities. 2011 will feature the first ever Vienna Gallery Weekend (Nov 18-20, 2011), held as part of Vienna Art Week.
