Galerie Krinzinger

Galerie Krinzinger was founded in 1971. Since then it has organized at least 400 exhibitions of national and international artists, mounting solo shows, group and thematic shows. The main interest and source of the gallery program stems, on the one hand, from international performance and body related art (Chris Burden, Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelly, Nancy Rubins) based originally on Viennese Actionism (Rudolf Schwarzkogler, Günter Brus, Hermann Nitsch, Otto Muehl). Besides that the gallery has been working with young national and international artists for some forty years. The latest additions to the program result from Ursula Krinzinger’s research in India, China and the Middle East. Apart from the gallery’s own program, Ursula Krinzinger organizes and curates important exhibitions in various spaces outside the gallery. Since May 2002 the gallery has also run a large new space called Krinzinger Projekte. With its internationally oriented group and topic exhibitions, the Krinzinger Projekte program has quickly earned an international reputation. Housed in a separate building, Krinzinger Projekte joins Galerie Krinzinger in inviting young national and international artists to take part in the gallery’s artist-in-residence program, which currently includes destinations in Austria, Hungary and Sri Lanka.
