Parallel – Vienna Contemporary Art Exhibition

DaDaDa Academy (Athens-VIE) and Open Source Gallery (NY) collaborate this year to exhibit at Parallel Vienna.

Parallel Vienna 2016 is an art show, exhibition, gallery and studio. As a meta-organisation whose do-it-yourself (DIY) principle translates into the infrastructure of the artistic institution, the exhibition platform manages itself: a trading centre for new ideas and a dedicated testing ground for self-professionalisation. This year, Parallel Vienna presents an insight into and divergent works of new and established contemporary art for the forth time with more than 400 national and international artists, 20 galleries, 40 project spaces and 42 artist spaces, as well as 15 independent curators.

Parallel Vienna is taking place for the fourth time in Vienna and remains true to its principle of using abandoned property in the city centre as a presentation platform for new and established art.
