NATURE and FORM, 18 September–19 December 2015.
To contemplate on nature is one of the most primal stimulations of the human spirit and its creative urge is a prerequisite for the arts. Art is what makes life more interesting than art. (Robert Filliou)

THE FACE – THE EYES – THE GLANCE, 19 March–27 June 2015.
From the inscrutability of the eyes of a Fayum mummy portrait to the expressiveness of a woman's face by Paul McCarthy, the representations of faces carries both the features of subjectivity as well as the imprints of its cultural environment. To embed the inner amplitude of a state of mind at a single glance has been a challenge to fine arts for many centuries.

Man Ray: Tour / Detour, curated by Roland Fischer-Briand and Barbara Toifl, in cooperation with Eyes On, Month of Photography, 26 October–20 December 2014.
Man Ray established himself as a prominent representative of avant-garde photography in the modern era. His oeuvre moreover captured the surrealist mentality and that of his contemporary, Marcel Duchamp. Their shared belief in freeing the notion of desire and identity as blasting at societal convention also paved the way for Pierre Molinier to what could today be described as 'Gender Studies'. Emanating from the vehement act of liberation in Viennese Actionism, the avant-gardist of 'moving images' Kurt Kren, like Man Ray, inextricably unites the mentality of his artistic environment with his sense for the medium of photography.

Prize for best art fair stand at art-austria, April 2014.

art-austria art fair, 3–6 April 2014.
Initiation of a dialogue between two distinctly pronounced positions in the Austrian field of contemporary art. The clear aesthetics of Michael Kienzer’s sculptures, affected by their materiality of industrial raw products, structure and accentuate the space in which Franz Graf responds with new paintings and drawings though estranging intermingling figurative motives, text and ornament in black and white. This encounter reciprocally brings forward the subtle sensuality of Kienzer’s installations and the sometimes tragic Eros in Graf’s figurations.

TRASH & ART An Exhibition in Progress I, 14 February–3 May 2014.
The visual arts have been helping themselves to the material ruins of our civilisation since, at the very latest, the dawn of Surrealism. This configuration has led to specific art forms: Realism, Fluxus and Conceptual Art. The tragic facade of consumption and the aesthetic of decay offers artists the opportunity to ask questions pertaining to meaning and being that can be expanded within installations and material assemblages. The use of trash and worthless found items is one of the most significant material associations of our time by which an idea can be elevated to art. (J. Hummel)
