From November 14 to 20, 2011, for the seventh time international museum directors, curators, critics and artists meet with personalities from the Viennese art scene in order to exchange views on current trends in the arts and art discourse.

In 2011, Viennese art institutions, fairs and galleries as well as numerous off-scene program partners of the Art Cluster Vienna surprise with an exciting program. The spectrum ranges from special guided tours of special exhibitions via the Gallery Weekend, panel discussions, lectures and extensive artists’ talks, exhibition openings, installations, interventions and performances through to selected events in private enterprises that promote contemporary art. This year for the first time ever, four Viennese design offices open their gates for the VIENNA ART WEEK 2011. The federal studios of the Austrian Ministry for Culture and the Arts (BMUKK) participate for the second time and the meanwhile legendary Studio Visits and many other highlights invite with an inspiring and creative ambience to network and to exchange for a whole week. –
